Make sure xtrememotorworks makes the 3pts capable for the rear pto option incase you do want to add it at a later date. Last i checked he didn't.
Everett, OK, just let me know when/if you would like the installation manual.
Thanks Kraig, but not right yet. I looked up the parts and found that most are available so I could put one together if I wanted to but I think I'll search around for a while first. I'm going to get a three point first, probably from Xtreme Motorworks, and go from there.
Everett, yes it is driven off of the back of the Hydro, via the output shaft. I have scans of the complete installation manual for the PTO and CAT-0 hitch, that I could email to you should you wish to do some reading.
you can still get it used but it is $$$$$$
Thanks for the photos. It looks like it is driven off the splined shaft that comes out the rear of the hydro. is that correct? Can you still get a kit like that?
Here's an exploded parts view from the installation manual.
Here's some photos from a brochure. The photo on the left is what the PTO parts look like behind the cover, which is shown installed in the right photo.
I have a 982, that does not have a rear PTO. Anyone out there have a photo of their 982 (or similar) that does have a rear PTO? I'd like to see what one looks like.
