Customer Question
I have a Kubota...

I have a Kubota L3600 and the PTO will not turn. I can move the lever to engage but nothing happens. It worked fine last season.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

L3600DT-GST. I don't have the serial number, where do I find it?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it for now.

Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

PTO Lever moves a cable, to the lever on the side of the transmission. Is the lever on the transmission valve moving the lever n transmission? If you remove cable at the lever, and shift it manually, will pto turn? Cable may be frozen or broken.

The lever appears to be hard linked to the transmission. What is visible outside is moving with the lever, I don't know what in inside. The PTO worked fine last season and has not been touched since then.

So this is the manual pto , and has gears, and not a hydraulic pto clutch Do the gears grind if you try to put it in gear with clutch out?

Customer reply replied 5 years ago
No. I had to rotate the PTO shaft by hand in order to get the shift lever to go into the engaged position, but once there, nothing happens.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Does the lever feel like it is moving an internal gear? Or is just loose?

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
I can't tell, it moves easily, but if the gears aren't lined up the lever won't go into the engaged position.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

Do you have free play at the clutch pedal? The pto is driven off the clutch.

Ask Your Own Agriculture and Farm Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 5 years ago
The clutch works fine, no problem with it.
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

If it has no free play, it can affect the pto shaft. If clutch is ok, then your pto clutch and shaft needs to be checked by disassembly!
