I thought I posted this yesterday but don't see it so I'll post again.

I've owned this 4210 for three years and never needed to use the PTO until yesterday when I connected the recently acquired Taylor Ways Backhoe. The PTO controlled with a pull/push knob located on the right side besides the 3 pt slide control.
At any rate the PTO does not engaged. I've checked for loose or disconnected wiring underneath the floor board but didn't see any.

You hit something here that must please some mfg and dealers: the number of machines sold that get low use and run out of warranty before some defects are found.

I recently had a much higher cost experience with another brand that had the machine been run near normal hours it would have happened during warranty period.
