PtO will not engage on cub cadet 1000
It would be helpful if I knew whether it was working and quit or has never worked. At any rate it has of course a live PTO on it (not dependent on the clutch to engage-disengage it). Check your linkage, make sure nothing has come loose and not moving the travel rod. Secondly some models have a hydraulic fluid compartment that is used for the PTO alone, check to see if this is the case and if so check fluid levels. Back to linkage, the engage mechanism is usually a lever of some type that moves a valve body and lets hydraulic flow under extreme and engage s set of input and output clutches together. If your engage mechanism is a magnetic clutch, check for bad wiring and burnt fuses. If it is a fuse replace with the same value as already in the harness. If the new fuse flows don't do like me and put a larger fuse in it, though that will show what wires are involved with the clutch engagement it also shows the wires to be replaced. Check wiring for ***** wires or wires worn and touching metal parts and grounding out.Back to Hydraulics again, unless you've loaded the PTO hard enough to burn the clutches out (which I doubt very much) it can only be that fluid is not getting to the clutches. Chances that there is a problem inside the tractor with the valve body are slim but possible. Most PTO that just quit are caused by linkage problems or low Hydraulic fluid. Check all the above, I believe you will find your problem lies somewhere in what I have explained. I farmed for 30 years and we ran from 140 -250 HP tractors and if a PTO went out it was usually linkage or low Hydraulic Fluid. Hope this helps, don't want to miss a crop over a PTO!Col.
