Right side leaver is High ,neutral, Low range, left is Forward ,neutral, Reverse. That is if you have hand controls,they also made foot operated forward-reverse. Hard pulling should be done in the Blue rang(left side) Also the left "clutch" pedal is called a foot and inch pedal. Just drive it and get a feel for it,kinda like a Hydro garden tractor. Now after saying all of this,I am talking about an Utility model,I have never been on a row crop.

ok if the lever on the left is f/r and the lever on the right is hi/lo then where is the leaver for the ta?

I found the lever for the pto ok. the sN tag has an S suffix meaning it has a ta but where is the handle.....

I bought a new Hydro 70,Farmall, there is no TA, why would u want one,just make sure the Hy-Tran fluid is changed according to the book! That Hy-Tran fluid can only absorb so much water!

Well, can't be a Hydrostatic drive tractor and have a Torque Amplifier. The S on serial number tag stands for Torque Amplifier.

In other words, we are talking about two different situations here so need a little more information about your tractor.

Assuming it s like my 544 hydro it s the lever on the left, move it rearward for reverse.
