First off I dont have the same tractor not even close but our PTO start up procedure is as follows.

1- engage rear hydraulics
2- lower the 3-point
3- engage the PTO lever
4- set engine speed.

Our PTO lever will not move unless we have done steps 1&2. So my thoughts are maybe you have missed a step.

Another thing to consider is that the lever is connected to a set of gear cogs if for some reason the PTO and the lever have misaligned the lever may be stuck.

Anyhow just a few quick thoughts on what it might be hope it helps.

picasso- id be all over a large frame hydrostatic drive tractor if the made one! I can run excavators, skids etc... but our first venture with an ag tractor has me a lil apprehensive, thank god it hasn't snowed yet

What do you mean by engage the hydraulics? My pto button is off, the lever selecting 540/1000 is in neutral, the dial that engages the auto pto (pto comes on when u lower the 3pt) is in neutral and the clutch is depressed and the lever in back still won't move

i know i wish i was in the 90hp range but the way ive got my 4720 set up and the way i use it makes money for me. Maybe someday i will try a smaller blower on it but for now i like it.

As I said different tractor different procedures, I'd just give the dealer a quick call. It's probably just a simple thing that they can help you over the phone with.
