TRACTOR PREPARATION AND HOOKUP
1. Slide tractor drawbar in as far as possible and still allow PTO shaft to have sufficient clearance to prevent damage
to driveline components when making sharp turns and operating over uneven ground.
Clevis hitch (hammer strap style) drawbars may need to be
removed to prevent damage to PTO assembly.
Adjust tractor drawbar to prevent severe bends in PTO U-joint
angles and to allow sufficient clearance between tractor drawbar/
hitch pin and PTO shaft.
2. Position PTO as far right of hitch as possible until parking jack is raised.
Avoid clevis hitch interference
