There is an adjustment on the hand clutch- remove the battery box, remove the cover beneath it. There are three sets of shims on the clutch assembly beneath the cover. Remove equal number of shims from each position to tighten up the clutch if necessary. Engaging the clutch will produce a more positive snap than disengaging it. Over center simply means that when you pull the lever towards you, the linkage snaps over its fulcrum,(pivot point) to lock it into place, and it takes more pressure to release it, than to engage it. That's why you hear and feel more snap to push the clutch forward than when you pull it back, and engage it.

Thats the way it's supposed to work.The engage/disengage linkage is an overcenter type.When you disengage it,you will feel a fairly crisp snap.When engaging,pull it in smoothly.When you feel the clutch start to engage,pull it in slowly from that point.You're going to like that clutch.When disengaged,you'll still have power to the PTO and the hydraulic system.My dad and I had a WD and we both really liked it.I think we both were ready to cry the day we sold it.

To try to keep this short,there are no springs or other mechanical linkage to keep the clutch engaged or disengaged.The arrangement of the handle and linkage is designed so it pops from engaged to disengaged to maintain position.I'll try to find an example for you this week.

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
