Can't say for sure, but the central gearbox is probably what will need to be changed. I'd think the blade boxes are the same between a 540 and 1000.

You may get lucky and only need to replace a couple gears.

I'd check the parts diagrams for both mowers and see what part numbers are the same for the main gearbox. Then see if the housings are the same, and check if the shafts or gears can be swapped.

There's a 540 - 1000 pto option available for that tractor. I'd check with JD and see what they say.

My JD 5083 E has the 540 - 1000 pto option. There is a pull up arm behind the seat.

My 5085E has a 540 and a 540E option by the seat. The 540E is meant to use a lower engine RPM while using the PTO.

That is what I have, not the 540 -1000 option. I never use it. You are correct, it lowers the RPMs of the engine not the PTO.

My 5083E is 2012. How do you like yours? I wish I had something just a bit bigger in HP and weight.

I've got a 93E and it's the same deal. For the small brush hog and spraying I use the economy for the bat wing, and haying I use the regular
