Hi.Can someone explain why they label the card showing transmission shifting that way?H style and top left R/R that's fine. Bottom left 4/2.Top right 6/5.Bottom right 3/1.Seems like in low you would go 1,2,5 and on hi it goes 3,4,6?Do I miss something?

It has to do with the internal design of the transmission, which was updated from the 10 series tractors and originally designed to use one gearshift lever. The 540 was fitted with the separate high/low shifter because the layout of the dash wouldn’t permit full range of motion for the single lever.

What is it you find odd, the gears available in low and high, or the shifter location for them? What you’re finding is correct for a 500 series Cockshutt transmission, 2, 1, 5 in low and 4, 3, 6 in high.

All in how the transmission is designed. My oliver 1550 is like you describe but the cockshutt 40/50 shifts 1,2,4 in low range and 3,5,6 in high.
