Do these tractors have select-o-matic? If so how can you tell? Is it labeled some way? I have no experience with these tractors.

The 601 was available with the Select-O-Speed transmission. The most obvious difference with this transmission is that the shifter is bolted to the dash rather than on the floor (actually, the transmission cover) like the 4 & 5 speed transmissions. Also, it has 10 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds, plus neutral and park. There is a cable (like a brake cable) that transfers the shifter position info to the transmission itself.

selectomatic was an automatic trans. I'm sure someone else will have another opinion - but I'm also sure that if you buy one with a selectomatic, you'll probably regret it. Never heard anything good said about it. Take it back, one guy told me it was the happiest day he could remember - the day he sold it.

Today's Featured Article - The Ferguson System Principal An implement cutting through the soil at a certain depth say eight inches requires a certain force or draft to pull it. Obviously that draft will increase if the implement runs deeper than eight inches, and decrease if it runs shallower. Why not use that draft fact to control the depth of work automatically? The draft forces are ... [Read Article]
