Re: Sluggish PTO on X748
I engage at half throttle. It has never waited for 3 or 4 seconds until recently. There was always a slight delay of maybe 1 second.
I'm not sure why it takes so long on the first engage. I wonder if sitting for a week it is sticking a bit and after the first time it then engages normally.
I had another thought. There must be a solenoid valve to engage the PTO. The spool could be getting sticky. I wonder if that valve is an integral part of the solenoid. It is probably not easy (expensive) to replace
