can you convert a 540 pto machine to 1000 pto?

Their are cuplers avaliable at most farm supply places to deal with the spline problem....

Not sure about your tractor, but I know the White 4-175's came with a straight 1000 rpm PTO, but the PTO unit out of any of the older White's would work in them, But to keep the right ratios one out of a 4-150 will work and since both had the Cat V-8's, the gear ratios are still correct. The ones out of the other White's that had six cylinders will also work, but the ratios are different and the PTO will run faster when placed in a V8 tractor. Might check and see what parts are interchangeable with a differant model of your tractor and it might be possible to get a dual speed PTO unit for it.

Mike, What type and models do you have. All of my John Deere's have both 1000 and 540 rpm pto's. My newer models like the 6430's just need a snap ring to take out and you reverse the short pto shaft. Mike
You asking me? I run a JD with a 540 pto....this was to answer TW30 question about conversion. His Ford only has a 1000 pto with around 160 pto hp and NH doesn't offer an internal conversion to 540, so external is his only option if he wants to run 540 equipment. I've just never seen an external converter rated for more than 125 hp. It's early though and I'm about half senile so I may have misunderstood the entire thread....

is there a avantage with a 1000 pto vs 540 pto. fast balering ? etc ?
No advantage, just different. Just like Red Tractors vs Blue or Green it is more of a personal preference issue. Either way the baler will run at the same speed on the back side of the gearbox.

One disadvantage I can see to 1000 pto machines, since the shafts run almost twice as fast as a 540 machine, they tend to fling grease everywhere.
