    Murphy's Law hit me hard this weekend. I was pulling my 60" Woods RFM downhill through tall grass and managed to straddle a 8 inch tall x 3 inch diameter twin stump with my MT180D; my mower however slammed full on into it, bringing the entire consist to an abrupt halt. Of all of the components...

    Help with PTO RPM calculation

    I'm new here and have a MT180D with a 3 speed PTO. It's mostly used to haul around a 60-inch Woods finish mower (540 rpm). 1st PTO gear makes 623 RPM @ 2700 (max engine rpm) and 540 rpm is marked off at 2340 engine rpm. So ~86-87%. Second gear (PTO) is rated at 919 rpm @ 2700 (max engine rpm)...
