1.1 This Standard was prepared to assist manufacturers of tractors and implements in providing suitable means of transmitting power from the tractor power take-off to the implement and satisfactory hitching of the implement to the tractor.

1.2 ANSI/ASABE AD500-1:2014, ASABE/ISO 500-2:2004, ANSI/ASABE AD8759-1:1998, and ANSI/ASABE AD8759-2:1998 provides dimensions relating to the tractor power take-off shaft and PTO shield; provides specifications for the splined power take-off shaft and the mating connector; and establishes and defines power take-off types 1, 2, and 3.

1.3 ANSI/ASABE AD730:2009 W/Amd. 1:2014 sets forth requirements for the attachment of three-point hitch implements or equipment to the rear of agricultural wheel tractors.

1.4 ANSI/ASABE AD6489-3:2004 provides dimensions for the drawbar location and relation to the tractor power take-off shaft.

1.5 The successful performance of all tractor and implement combinations likely to be met in field service require consideration of factors other than the dimensional relationship provided in the aforementioned Standards.
