 How to engage and disengage the PTO on a TC29D

Iím wondering about how to engage the PTO with a light load attached. I have noticed that I donít need to use the clutch to engage or disengage the PTO if there is nothing attached Ė I can just move the lever forward and it engages with no grinding or anything. I wouldnít try this with a mower or tiller, but was wondering if this would work on a post hole digger while itís still in the air. Since the tractor is barely above idle anyway (the manual for the digger says to only use low RPMS), it doesnít seem like it would shock anything to engage and disengage the PTO without pushing the clutch in. Opinions? Thanks.

 How to engage and disengage the PTO on a TC29D

I recently bought a post hole digger. I used it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I used it to dig holes to plant a row of trees. It worked nice and all, but I have one gripe about my TC29D in this situation. After I dug the first hole, I pushed the clutch in to stop the digger. Then I pushed the hydro pedal to move up to the next spot, but of course nothing happened. Then I remembered reading in the manual that pushing the clutch in will disengage the drive. So, I had to disengage the PTO, and let the clutch out so the hydro drive would work, then move up to the next spot, push the clutch in, engage the PTO, dig the hole, and repeat for each hole.

Danny, You're a tough customer. I believe all the hydros work that way.

Don't engage the PTO without the clutch - you will end up damaging something. Kind of like driving through red lights - it may work 5 times out of 10.

I was suprised you had a clutch on a hydro and had to look into the NH web to see. The NH I looked at the 45D has an independant clutch as does the my JD 955 which is hydro.
If you have no load on the PTO i.e. if just the auger is spinning at the bottom of a hole, then it should not hurt to disengage without the clutch. Better safe than sorry normally but I will pull my manual Massey out when bush hogging, but it has a 2 stage clutch for reactivation.
