I have a 62 830 diesel caseomatic with the 2 shift levers. one for high and low,and one for transmission speeds. I just bought a manual for it at a tractor show this weekend and all it shows in the book is a one stick design... Was that the earlier style and when did they change it? which is more reliable? just curious ive never seen a one stick before

I had a 700 with the one stick shifter and I thought the only inconvenience was when shifting from 4th to 5th and back, 5th to 4th. It was just the extra step of shifting ranges.Don't know why shifting these was such a challenge. Did the linkage of these shifters get really sloppy with age, wear and tear?
My Dad had an 830 with the two shifters and I thought it was unhandy to have to deal with two levers instead of one.

After my initial comment, I went digging and located Dave Erb's article in the Fall '97 issue of "Old Abe's News" where he had written an in depth history of the 730-1030 series. As part of the article he ran a chronological listing of engineering changes from 3/59 thru 2/69. The 2 stick shift system was introduced in Feb of '60 along with a myriad other changes. The 830 had been in production for several months by this time meaning the 830 did have units with a single shifter. If interested I can scan and post this page.

My '65 830 has a 2 stick, and compared to my 2 400s it's heaven. Nothing like pulling out of a field in low range with the 400 and the mower onto the road and then you're unable to find high range, about the time a semi comes down our 2 horse twp rd........ The one stick is like a bowl of spaghetti to me. Not sure when they started, I've always assumed they appeared with the 800 to 830 chg
