SelectoSpeeds are very expensive to repair, but worse yet is finding a competent person who can do it. If it is working good now, it will last if treated right. Operators are usually responsible for destroying these as well as other makes of transmissions. If you put it in one gaer and leave it there as opposed to moving it up and down, it will give good service. Just don't ever change speeds under load.

Selecto-o-Speed transmissions are designed to be shifted under load up or down at any RPM but you are not suppose to use the INCHING PEDAL for shifting it is for attaching implements and stopping or starting or parking If you do not know how to use the transmission properly buy an OWNERS/OPERATORS MANUAL AND READ IT COMPLETELY it will tell how to use it correctly I have 4 of them and they work fine one tractor has 6000hrs on the transmission I am the second owner on that machine 99.9% of equipment problems are OWNERS/OPERATORS who do not know how to operate or maintain and abuse their equipment ESPECIALLY THE SELECT-O-SPEED TRANSMISSION ENOUGH SAID.

Tony, thanks for the info, i guess there is hope. The tractor I bought has the SOS, It doesn't move at all except a little in R2, maybe low on fluid the previous owner said he had no problem with it only when he leased it to someone else did it act up. I'll get the book and read about it before I play with it.

What's the point of owning an SOS trans if you can't shift gears under load? Don't worry about it. Change the oils and filters regularly and keep the bands adjusted and go for it. The later SOS transmissions were good units in my opinion if they were treated right and not abused.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
