Can a 540 PTO run a 1000 PTO implement?

You definitely cannot run a 540 baler with a 1000 pto tractor. You will tear it up as you would be trying to turn it twice as fast. Also the 100 pto has a different spline than the 540 so that would be a problem.

What’s the difference between 540 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.
