I am trying to find the industrial designation for an industrial version of the D17. I have seen photos of it but no I number. I have seen the term I600 used but there seems to be some debate as to whether this is a D15 or D17 variant.

The I-40 and I-400 were based on the D-10/D-12. The I-60 and I-600 were based on the D-15. There was no official Industrial version of the D-17. They could though be ordered with a shuttle clutch for loader operation. They could also be ordered with no hydraulics and no lift arms for use as base units for OEM equipment like loaders and backhoes, ect.

 O.K. So what is this shuttle clutch thingie. in reply to Bret (OH), 09-16-2005 11:44:35  
O.K. So what is this shuttle clutch thingie. I noticed they were talking about a "left hand" shuttle clutch in the Henry TS-1000 loader manual which was a loader designed to fit the D17. How does a shuttle clutch work in relation to loader operations? From the drawings in the TS-1000 manual, the hydraulics pump is driven off a shaft bolted to the front of the crankshaft. Thanks in advance for any info here.

The shuttle clutch was a forward-reverse lever which replaced the power director (Hi-Lo). The clutches used were similar (if not identical), but there was a different internal gear setup that gave you reverse instead of Low Range. I think that the shuttle clutch lever was on the left, and Power Director was usually on the right. Perhaps it was because hydraulics were on the right, and you could shift directions with the left hand and work the bucket controls with the right.

 Thanks, that makes sense. in reply to Tramway Guy, 09-16-2005 12:45:17  
Thanks, that makes sense. I know that on industrial tractors, they left off the rocker box and aft PTO. The PTO clutch lever is on the left side of the tractor and the Power Director is on the right side. At first I was concerned that the loader piller on which the loader spools are mounted may not fit correctly in the presence of the power director shifter. Not sure if this is an issue or not. May be easier to just purchuse an entire I600 hoe and keep both tractors.:)
