The 185 had a live PTO in that the tractor's movement could be stopped with the PTO remaining engaged through the powerdirector clutch (this was the tractor's 2 speed, shift on the go, set up). However, if you pushed the foot clutch in, the PTO would lose power along with the forward motion of the tractor stopping. Also, the 185 was available with a hydraulically engaged PTO clutch, which would allow the PTO to be engaged while the tractor is moving, where the mechanically engaged PTO required the foot clutch be depressed, the tractor be brought to a stop, then the PTO engaged and the foot clutch reengaged. It was "live" per definition, but not "independent."

How does engine RPM affect PTO RPM?

How do you troubleshoot a John Deere 185 hydro tractor that kills when pto is engauged?

First, check the operatorpresenceswitch located under the seat. Check and see if the wire are broken or that the switch is working. If this switch is broken the circuit to the deck will be tripped once the pto is trying to be engaged. If that doesn't work, next check and see if you have a battery that is strong enough to keep the electromagnet working.

What is the difference in engine pto and ground pto?

An engine PTO runs off the engine thus the speed is governed by the speed of the engine. A ground PTO is ran from the rotation of the tires. Therefore the speed is governed by the speed of the rotation of the tires.

What is a PTO generator?

Farm tractors and some trucks and industrial engines can have a PTO or Power-Take-Off shaft that is used to power attachments such as sprayers, hydraulic pumps and, well, generators. The PTO is low speed, so a PTO generator usually has a gearbox to step the speed up to the RPM needed to turn a generator. PTO's are pretty standardized and use a short driveshaft to couple the tractors PTO to the attachment. PTO generators are used where remote power is needed and a PTO-equipped vehicle is available. It saves having to buy and maintain another engine.
