 Proper way to engage/disengage PTO

I was reading another post from a new user that when the pto is disengaged on the rotary cuutter, the blades slam together. Mine also does this but I had no idea that there was a neutral. I read the manual or so I thought. Could someone please let me know the proper way to engage/disengage the PTO.Thanks

 Proper way to engage/disengage PTO

Can't help with the PTO engagement problem, but I can tell you that the rotary cutterI used to use on the farm had What I called free floating blades. Meaning that you had the middle rotating piece that looks like a T. and each leg of the T had a free floating blade attatched. Rotational force would keep the blades in the extended position.If you stopped the mower quickly they would, they would wip around and bang against something. I can't imaginethis is a good thing, but it never seemed to do any damage. I tried to keep it from happening. I think this design was to allow a pivot point if you hit a rock or stump, instead of breaking somethingSmile

 Proper way to engage/disengage PTO

On my tractor if you disengage the pto but just put the handle halfway between engagedand disengaged, it stops powering the implement, but doesn't brake it, so the blades start slowing downright away, then when they've slowed down a lot, I ease it into the fully disengaged position. That stops that god awful noise. Hope this helps.

 Proper way to engage/disengage PTO

When using my Rhino SE5 rotary cutter and my B2710, I set the RPMS about 1300, push in the clutch and pull the lever to engage the PTO, then I let off the clutch slowly to engage. Then I bring up the RPMs to mowing speed. When I push in the clutch to disengage the PTO, and in fact disengage the lever and get off the tractor, the blades and PTO on the cutter are still freewheeling for a short time and slow down gradually. The cutter had that round thing in the middle with two blades that flop in the breeze, of course getting to the extended position by centrifugal force. I have not experienced any of those noises some of you are talking about.
