I have heard of the older style T/A "free-wheeling" what does that mean, and what makes it do that as opposed to the newer ones? I have heard that you cannot use the older style T/A to slow down in road gear either

"free wheeling" means that when the TA is on the low side, there is no resistance from the engine when going down a hill. In essence, it is like being in neutral. If the TA is on the high side, no problem. The engine will hold back on a downhill grade just like any other tractor. With my 686 and 886 tractors, I make it a habit of just running them on the high side all the time, and only pulling down to the low side when I need a little extra power to get through a tough spot or to slow down when going over rough ground. Once the tough going or rough ground is passed, back to the high side they go. That way I am not caught off guard if I am in a situation where "free wheeling" could occur.
