I defiantly agree with you there. If I could get a pto and hitch on a payloader that would be the cats meow. For now the next closest thing is a bi-di.
How many PTO hp do you need. Those payloaders have quite a bit of hydraulic flow. A Deere 544k puts out 50gpm at 1000psi. We have run our graincart 22" auger on less gpm than that. Higher pressure. But if you really wanted to, AtomJet or someone similar could add a big hydraulic pump to that motor, then mount a hydraulic pto and hitch out the back. Tub grinder? No. Bale king? Maybe. Can one of those put out 100hp? I dunno. Project for someone.
