TC45D - No Mid PTO?

   / TC45D - No Mid PTO? #11  
Troy: saw your response and had a side question. I have just bought a TC35, FEL, and 5' cutter after much research. I have quite a bit of hilly ground (24 ac) and a long steep drive in north Idaho. Obviously one of the prime work issues is snow removal.

To my question. I haven't used a FEL before in snow but what I presume is that using a blade with the FEL would be the way to go. I was thinking that using them in tandem would be the best, depending on snow depth.

Any advice?

Dieselpower, whats the use for the other speed on the rear PTO? My tractor has 2 PTO shafts on the back. The higher speed PTO has a different spline configuration so they can't get mixed up. I have yet to see an implement that uses anything other then 540 RPM but there are occacsions where I think using the higher speed PTO at reduced engine RPM to give me 540 RPM would be great such as running a pump or generator.

Hi, Rat,

Little late here, sorry. You must have a Case tractor (2 PTO shafts). The other one is 1000 RPM, right? My TN90F has 2 speed capability, but I have to change shafts.

To keep folks from borrowing it and because it had a higher tip speed, I bought my 7 ft Bushhog with a 1000 RPM gearbox. She's a hoss!

I’m going say that it was an option for all the TC45 and below.

Here are some pictures of a TC45 with a mid mount mower that was listed on TractorHouse in the last couple of years.
