I do agree to only tow a JD Syncro-range or Quad-range far enough to get off roadway or onto a roll-back truck/trailer. What's wrong with tow starting? As soon as clutch is released with trans in a gear the trans pump is turning which in turn oils the trans shafts & gears. This post was edited by Tx Jim at 09:28:15 03/05/14.

I knew I'd start a war with a blanket statement like that. What I am trying to do is get the idea out there to not do this to ANYTHING Deere made after 1960 because there are just too many models to pick and choose from and try to remember all the do's and don't. Anything with a power shift or hi-low or reverser is going to get EXPENSIVE if you go pull starting on them !

I think a difference of opinion is hardly a War. I stated I'd only recommend "towing" a very short distance. IMHO any major breakdown is expensive and galling a gear to a shaft by towing is totally uncalled for.

All that and the fact that the "tow" position is not handy to find,, you can be one way or the other a bit and not be in tow, and pull starting a sychro range with out a perma clutch will work out okay as the engine is turning over the trans pump is operating too..
