Only thing I ever indicated is that when doing a lot of loader work a hydro or shuttle shift can't be beat.

Old we sell about 300+ tractors a year in the 20 to 120 hp range. I have watched the change in ratios for years. first 2 wheel to 4 wheel change about 10% a year to now days 86% we sell are 4 wheel drive. Then the open station to cab began to change , now days around 38% are cab tractors. Gear drive vrs hydraulic shuttle or hydrostatic transmission changes about 10% a year. Only the person buying price now days buys a gear drive tractor. Most are sold with hydrostatic or at least hydraulic shuttle clutches. So many tractors are bought now for hired help use most of which are not good old farmboy operators. Like ever thing else gear drive was great but it is a sign of passing times.

Having said what I did above, I have to say I agree with your last three sentances 100%. One of the reasons the military changed over to auto trannys years ago was because the troops no longer had a clue as to how to drive manual transmissions.

Same thing with ATV's. I doubt if you can hardly sell a manual shift ATV anymore. But they sure squeal like a stuck pig when they find out what it costs to rebuild the things!

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see



if what you mean by "a hydro or shuttle shift" is a lever like where the blinker on a truck is, and it shifts it from drive to reverse without pushing in the clutch, then i agree with you 150%, they are sweet, you can get a whole lot more done with a whole lot less effort with them. i rented a backhoe with that feature on it. i l loved it, if i ever won the lottery i'd buy one in a minute, cab,ac and all. i had a standard pickup for a few yrs and my back was always hurting me, got an automatic and the back pain went away.
