Can a 540 PTO tractor run a 1000 PTO implement?

You definitely cannot run a 540 baler with a 1000 pto tractor. You will tear it up as you would be trying to turn it twice as fast. Also the 100 pto has a different spline than the 540 so that would be a problem.

Can a 540 PTO run a 1000 PTO implement?

Premium Member. I agree, your 540 PTO equipment will not handle 1000 PTO input. Those tractors are rated at 2200 rpm, so you would be running way too slow. I would NOT buy these tractors for PTO use if you do have/plan to get the 1000 PTO implements.
