the tranny out of "Park?" Parked the AC7000 PS nose down on an a little incline the last time I used it. Went out to use it, but the dad-burn thing would not come out of "Park!" Not wanting to put excess force on anything, 'cause I sure don't want to break somethin' inside the tranny, I just jiggled, lightly tugged, pushed, and by adding in a few expletives, it finally came out. BUT, there has to be a better way! What's the easy way, there's got to be one.

If anybody can shed some light on the easy process, like ideas of "how-to" (short of 'don't park it on a hill') I sure would like to hear 'em. My area is a little hilly, so the flat ground is not always close to the barn and I don't like long walks.

Thanks - Farmer Tom

Thank you to everybody for your replies. You all have certainly given me some "thinking material" to consider! Thanks again.

From what I can remember of the JD 3020 power shift units. You would have to start to move the gearshift out of the PARK position and then ENGAGE the Clutch to release the Park setting.

In 1976 I purchased a new automobile. While reading the owner's manual(some of us really do that) I came across the instruction for this problem and I paraphase, "drive the car forward until the lever is released."

You are right in not forcing it. Also do not put into park while still moving as it can brinell the park components making it even more difficult to release from park. Doug probably has the right solution.

If it is really tight, and you have another tractor, give the tractor an uphill nudge while someone is moving the lever out of park.

I do not know about your tractor, but in a car or truck you can have the same problem parking on an incline in park. What I do is securely set the parking brake before putting transmission in park. Sid

Yep, you're right, just like a car. The only thing is, I haven't found on the tractor is the emergency brake or a way to set/lock the rear wheel brakes.

The "park" in the tranny IS the emergency brake. Our 7060 and 7000 can take a fair amount of umphf to get out of park if they are setting with a bit of a load on them. Especially if they have 80,000 lbs of corn behind them on wagons. One trick that can help is to depress both brake petals when you take it out of "park", that'll keep it from wanting to roll any more.
