In today’s video you’ll see how to operate the rear PTO from off of the operator’s seat on your tractor. There is a very specific sequence you need to follow which is found in your manual. If you can’t get the rear PTO to engage, it is highly likely that you are not doing something correctly. Take a deep breath, read each step, and try again. The sequence to operate your rear PTO off of the tractor seat is most likely a little bit different for every model of tractor. However, it can be a very handy feature to have to operate certain attachments such as the wood chipper pictured in this video.

Speaking of the wood chipper, that is a Wallenstein BX36S wood chipper and is a perfect match for a John Deere 1025r tractor or any subcompact tractor for that matter! The Wallenstein BX36s wood chipper requires 12-30HP at the engine!
