I moved to France from the UK 4 months ago. Wasn't intending to get much land, but the only house we liked came with 25 acres! With half being grass, I bought a Shibaura SD2200 (similar to Ford 1700 compact tractor) and a rotary grass cutter.
Yesterday, the PTO shaft pulled out of the gearbox. With the aid of the manual posted on this site, I was able to take it apart, replace the broken circlip and get it going again.
Looking forward to asking lots of questions to get the best out of my compact tractor.
