I just acquired a rear pto that will be going on my 332. I also have the 3 point hitch. From what I have come up with, the 2000 rpm pto uses a unique spline and diameter not to be mixed up with 1000 or 540 rpm attachments. Deere made a MCS and mechanical tiller that ran off there pto. Cub Cadet also had a rear tiller that ran off of the 2000 PTO, and Kubota as well? I gues Tractor Supply sells the stub shaft that fits the female spline of the gearbox on the tractor.

Are there other attachments/brands that will work with the 2000rpm PTO? Has anyone built any custom attachments or retrofitted any existing ones? A power lawn thatcher and rear mounted snowblower can be found in the gallery, any others out there?

I think a rear mounted flail mower, 48" wide with a pto shaft off the tractor to a right angle gearbox with shaft running to one side then reduced through a chain would be cool to make. Dont want to think about how much work it would be to attach all the brackets for the flails to hang from!

John Deere also made the 260 finish mower and a 50 inch version as well for the 2000 pto.

AJ, I remembered these a little while after I posted. I knew they made something else, hard to justify offering the PTO option for only 2 attachments!

Mike,

Of course the 30 hydraulic tiller can run off the rear PTO clutch (albeit a slightly unique set-up with a double pulley instead of the spline drive) and since you can get a different version of the 30 hydro tiller that mounts the pump under the belly in the same place as the deck, the tiller can be set up to use either the front or rear PTO, so I don't think that this attachment qualifies as a justification for your definition.

Does anyone here on WFM need justification for the hobby??

Chuck

CC also sold a 42" single blade rotary mower made by Bush Hog. That mounted on the 3PH and was driven off of the 2000 RPM PTO.

Wheel Horse 3pt Cat 0 attachments will work as well. They made a 50 inch tiller, and a 60 inch rear mower (made for them by Woods, I believe it was a model RM306 painted red instead of yellow and white). JD made two collection systems that used the splined shaft 2K rpm pto. The Tilt Dump MCS, and the Hydraulic Dump MCS. Do not try to convert a 540 RPM attachment by simply changing the shaft on the implement. Your tractor does not have enough horse power to drive the attachment at almost 4 times it's design speed. This would also be very unsafe. Also the JD 400 garden tractor 3 pt Cat 0 rear PTO attachments will not work without significant modification.

Thanks guys, I have seen a few of these guys, Woods RM42 mowers.

Passed one up for $300. I didnt have the PTO then, oh well.



I know Mark from southern WI bought a rear finish mower at Little G for his tractor. It was the 430 with the 3 pt fork lift on it. Not sure what brand finish mower it was, but it was red and basically a rectangle with a gearbox.

I sold the mower to Mark. It is a Rotek mower (I think???) that artsway bought out. You can still get parts through artsway. The mower is a 48 inch with one gear box then belt drive to two blades. Very good mower. Mark posted a picture of it after he got it home. I sold it because I put a JD503 on my 4410. Ron

ArtsWay quit making finishing mowers. Arts Way is made about 15 miles south of me. My neighbor who is also into collecting L&G tractors works there and told me that they quit making the mowers because nobody was buying them he said they sold 21 of them in 06

As far as rear mowers go, I really like the performance of my 260 behind my 420. It's a finishing mower, but it goes through some pretty ugly stuff, also. The occasional pocket gopher mound really doesn't bother it, but it sure throws the clippings on me/the back of the tractor/and itself.

Good riddance to those little mountain making bastards- I'd send them all straight to ....!
Front blade works a little better than the 260! I have trapped and poisoned before- but if you keep destroying their mounds, they soon leave.

There worth money. Cut the feet off. I forget how much they pay for them it's not much but some people pay for the feet. Just to prove that you did trap one and not saying that you did.

Do they still do that? I know my dad used to get .05 for a pocket gopher front paw, and he used to give us kids a quarter for one. We learned how to get 'em pretty good. In a 200 acre pasture, they would be making mounds in the opposite end from the cows. (if the cows were in the North end at night, there would be fresh mounds in the south end.) Trapping them works very well, but who has the time? It's unfortunately one of those things that gets put on the back burner, then one day you notice you're over run with 'em. We had a pasture sit empty for a couple years, they really tore it up in a hurry. When we ran cattle back in it, the pocket gophers vacated in a hurry. I even shot some that were topside during the day, never saw that before. Dog got a bunch, too.
My brother in AZ has a problem with gophers. They burrow into his irrigation berms, and make them leak. He traps them just like pocket gophers. They must be tough to dig through that red dirt--more like concrete!
