## What is the difference between 540 PTO and 1000 PTO?

100 horsepower is about the practical limit for 540 rpm. On many implements where they offer both, the 1000 rpm drivelines are sized smaller, yet still transmit as much power as the 540 drivelines, because they are turning faster, and have more gear reduction at the implement gearbox.

## What does it mean 540 PTO?

### Can a 540 PTO tractor run a 1000 PTO implement?

Premium Member. I agree, your 540 PTO equipment will not handle 1000 PTO input. Those tractors are rated at 2200 rpm, so you would be running way too slow. I would NOT buy these tractors for PTO use if you do have/plan to get the 1000 PTO implements.
