The 30 tiller I mean and thanks for the clarification
Okay so I've only had a 332 for less than a year but I do know there were two PTO's available on these. The front PTO is standard. It's the pulley on the front of the engine but is called front/mid PTO because it can power a front mount implement or mid-mount mower. The rear PTO was an option but your tractor does not have it installed. If it did, that stub shaft you're asking about would be connected to a gearbox installed above the transmission, and you would have a second PTO switch on the dash. I don't know if you can run anything off of just the stub shaft, it turns at engine RPM for whatever that's worth. Not sure why JD just didn't make a 540 rear PTO as standard. Probably due to cost.I thought it was controlled off of the PTO coming out the back of the engine? Or is the shaft with the U joint constantly spinning? And what tiller is the one that would work to this tractor without the new gearbox?
The tractor hydraulics only lift/lower the tiller. They don’t have the flow/psi to run a tiller like a bobcat does.PA that is a sweet setup... exactly what I'm trying to do. I can fab most things with a torch and a welder. But where did you hook your hydraulic up, to the front remotes or did you add a set to the rear?
There probably just the front clutch, you can’t really easily see the rear electric clutch when it’s installed. The 2000rpm reduction gearbox or pulley bracket blocks its view. If you haven’t already, I recommend making an account with JD Parts and search for the 332. You can look at all the sub components of the tractor and the implements/ptos/etc. it really helps me make sense of things when I am working on mine.And Dixie I need to go back out and look at mine I'm fairly sure I have 2 electric PTO clutches on at the front and one at the rear but I think I only have one PTO switch weird...
The hydrostatic tillers require their own pump powered by a PTO. My setup is very similar to the JD 30 model tiller by using the mid-frame brackets under the tractor. One difference between mine and the JD 30 is my pump had to hang down which impacts my clearance to the ground. Here is a picture of the pump mounted under my machine:PA that is a sweet setup... exactly what I'm trying to do. I can fab most things with a torch and a welder. But where did you hook your hydraulic up, to the front remotes or did you add a set to the rear?
I didn’t see a mule drive pictured on your tractor. It has tabs that slide into slots up front, under where the front pto/hydraulic ports are. You may go poke around at your...neighbor? I think it was who gave the 332 to you. They may have it. It will need new idler pulleys if it’s sat out all these years. But yeah, you are exactly correct about the mule drive just shifting power transfer 90 degrees. That’s what it does.Crystal clear now. Thank you Kris and PA for the picture and clarification. That makes perfect sense now. Unfortunately it's raining its tail off here and I'm stuck in the shop staring at the 332 instead of working on it. So does this tractor have what is required to rig a pump to the belly I keep hearing talk about a mule drive??? From what I can figure all this does is take the up and down from the front pto to a horizontal drive? Is this needed or do I have what is required for a tiller. The whole reason I took on this project is to have a compact tractor that can plow/ till middles between my rows of hemp and produce I tend.
The mule drive is has to be installed each time you add an attachment that uses a belt under the machine. As stated it slides into notches under the front of the machine so that the PTO pulley can change from the vertical to horizontal direction. Here is a picture of one, those pins marked by arrows slide into the frame:I will definitely take a look into that. I'll look again and see if theres a pulley on the bottom somewhere that would go to a mower belt. And where are you that's gonna have 90s???
