Said it was the alternator,replaced it put on Dyna o meter. got it home hooked to hay cutter turned on , didnt work. took back to dealer,he put in a senser,pto controller ,sleeve,dowell,misc parts, said he put on dyn o meter for 4 hours.got it back home,another 250 mile round trip. hooked up hay cutter,turned it on and it wont turn. I'm out 6 weeks,$5300,and he want me to bring it back so he can throw more parts and labor at it!he said he contacted a McCormic tech and the tech said he has done everything that can be done. must be something the farmer is doing!!!!????

I'm no hay expert, but if the tractor dealer ran the pto on dyno, It should work. Have you tried it on another piece of equipment? Maybe the haycutter has problem and won't turn.??
