If I remember correctly the B6000 pto runs in reverse. I do not know if that holds true for the mid pto. That said, do you have the implements to use on the B6000. Finding usable implements and their mountings can be very difficult for the older tractors. They did make a pto reverser so that you could use standard rotation implements on the back but the reverser is very hard to find anymore.

There is no mid PTO option that was ever available for the B6000.

The cover is probably just an access hole.

Hi Tom,

I'm a couple of years late to this conversation!!
I raised a question about this before about a year ago but couldn't find the answer unfortunately. I decided to start looking again and have just stumbled across your similar question.
Is my picture below what you are talking about? It appears that all necessary requirements are there to mount the likes of a bevel box (or similar!) to the mid chassis area of the tractor and in turn have a mid mounted PTO option for various implements that can be fabricated for it.

I'd love to hear if you managed to get a result from your searching.

Regards,

Adam.

Difficult for me to tell from the tiny pic, but if you guys have 2wd tractors you are probably looking at the thing the front driveshaft would be hooked to IF you had 4wd. If that's the case i would call it the front output shaft.

I don't think any of these old Bs had a mid PTO except the hydrostatic models, and even then im not sure all the HST models had one.

Mine is a 4wd. The shaft does engage and spin with the rear pto lever. Mine seems to be an 18 spline. Just not sure how you would ever use it. Looking at the mid pto’s they are driven by a gear so would have to find a gear to go on the shaft. I’m thinking it’s a lost cause tho.

That's very interesting!! I have 4 of these things sitting here (2x6100, 2x7100) and im gonna climb under at least some of them and look.. I've only glanced at that area in passing so far. None of these have needed to be taken apart there.. yet.😂:unsure:
