I'm 77 and having a VERY hard time attaching the round baler pto. It is dang hard to hold back the ring and push forward the pto shaft at the same time. I've seen some items for easy, quick attaching the pto. I think one is Pat's. It may be the original. It seems to have four connection pins. I saw another on YouTube which seemed to have many more. Any experience using any of these--easy? hard? Any knowledge of prices? Any knowledge of strongest, lightest, most durable, etc.? Thanks, kelly

Those ring style couplers are a pain. With that said if its a standard 540 6 spline shaft I would be looking into replacing the end yoke that has the ring portion on it thats being a pain and replace it with a regular yoke with the traditional push pin.

I solved the hooking and unhooking problem by having a tractor dedicated to each implement,keep two hooked to balers at all times.My David Brown 780 probably hasn't been unhooked from the NH 256 rake 3 time in the last 20 years

I have 2 identical balers. One has the ring PTO, he other has a traditional push pin. The Push Pin is so much easier to hook up. The better
of the 2 balers has the ring, but I plan to have the PTO shafts switched. ring is a poor design in my opinion!

That is what I did, I found the old style thumb button yoke at a farm supply store, and put that on. Made a much nicer pto out of it than those oddball push forward and
push backward at the same time deals.

My 1207 had that one. The Ford 2000 didn't have enough clearance for the big plastic mushroom so I changed it to the old pushbutton style yoke. When I got my 1550 I though I could go back to it but it would not clear the PTO clutch housing.

Agree, the best solution is to have a tractor for every implement and an implement for every job.

I had a push collar on a Weasler CV shaft, same deal, hard to hold collar in while pushing shaft on.

I replaced the whole shaft due to failure with a Bondio & Parvesi CV shaft and it is 100 times easier to attach, different style of push collar and far easier to align the splines.

I'd spend money on a entire new CV shaft before an add on thing geared more for compact tractor use.

Them stupid rings. I got one on an auger. It helps before you back the tractor up to it, set shaft on a saw horse and empty a can of wd-40 on it while working it back and forth.
