I will add . you have a tractor that has teriffic torque. Therfore it is not necessary to have high rpm to start a load.As you learn you will use foot throttle an find you can start a heavy load almost ideling-than increase rpm to 1500--1800 an shift power shift to intermideant an than to final power shift.Also when slowing down i recomend slowing engine first Than use power shift to shift down . When turning at ends you will find most turns can be made with out shifting due to torque of Case ENGINE.Also you need to have engine rpm pretty slow or you will not be able to get in reverse.Finally you have found by now the engine makes a jerk when you push in clutch when ideling or with rpm fast. This is normal. Finally you can change the 4 speed without grinding by going to what ever range you want on the 4 speed by pushing clutch an at moment you hear engine make jerk

Ok ,, Basically you have a old style 4 speed RANGE tranny ,with 3 speed automatic and reversein front of the old style tranny ,, the automatic is always in some gear ,,the clutch allows range shifting,,and must be used to shift to reverse ,, BTW - NEVER OPERATE PTO STATIONARY IN REVERSE ,, you can back up a roundbaler to dump a bale with no harm ,,has sumthin to do with oiling shafts ?? Get A operators book ,, you really need that for. this tractor ,,important to have your parking brake dash lite workingggg and to maintain parking brake as there is NO PARK PALLL on the CASE ..THIS TRACTOR CAN FREEWHEEL WHEN SHUT OFFAND NO BRAKE OR WHEEL CHOCK IS USED....back to the clutch ,,WHEN IN 3RDSPEED IN ANY RANGE, a properly adjusted Case PowerShift , will downshift to 2nd speed with a moderate tap depress on the clutch , it will automatically downshift from 3rd to 1st speed when the clutch is fully depressed ..These are cable adjustments ,,And SADLY ,a lot of PoewerShift Cases have not had these adjustments maintained ..and Therefore the operator is Simply hand shifting the Speed selector ,, Which Really is a Good Habit to develope, Because then You are not dependant on the cutch doing the work ,,ou simply place thespeed selector ..manually ,.keep in mind the power shift MUST ALWAYS START MOVEMENT IN 1st OR reverse ,,and a properly adjusted clutch will not allow you to place the speed selector in 2nd or 3rd with the clutch depressed ,P{anic Stops are easily achieved in hi Gear , by simply fully depressing the clutch , and the brakes ,, everything stops harmlessly ..BTW ,,The Clutch Will Always be refered to on Automatics as a inching pedal ,,you can slip the clutch in forward or reverse to ease up to something with out harming the tranny regardless of engine revs ,,to change ranges it is recommended to come to complete stop ,,. however,as you become accustomed to the power shift you will find a Good operater can glide the range tranny like any dry clutch tractor you are familiar with by matchin ground speed to engine and selecting the matching range ..hope this helps you ,,,but you need to get a book to help you KNOW YOUR TRACTOR

Use the clutch to shift the four speed section. then you can shift up on the 1,2,3, and back down.have to clutch to shift into reverse.
