The 5G Series brings additional choices for transmission options. In addition to a 24 forward / 12 reverse (24F/12R) PowrReverser™ transmission option, the 5G Series offers the 12F/12R SynchReverser™ transmission for operators looking for a mechanical reverser.
The 24F/12R transmission provides 24 forward speeds and 12 reverse speeds for transport speeds of up to 40 km/h (24.9 mph). The transmission provides convenient high/low and declutch push-button controls. The high/low feature benefits operators who frequently transport their tractors from field to field or find themselves in bog-down situations during rear power take-off (PTO) work.
Users can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get an increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The PowrReverser transmission has a built-in engagement override valve for additional safety. This valve requires the clutch pedal to be depressed one time after each engine start before the transmission will begin to operate normally, giving the operator another opportunity to put all focus on the tractor. A neutral start switch requires the PowrReverser lever to be in the neutral position to start the engine.
Gear-shift lever with high/low selectors
On the 12F/12R, 12 forward and 12 reverse speeds are achieved by using two platform-mounted levers for shift operation. The transmission offers three-range transmission with four speeds in each range. Operators can easily switch directions without having to completely stop the tractor with synchronized, in-line, shuttle-shift capability between forward and reverse gears on the gear shift lever in all three ranges (A, B, and C ranges). A neutral start switch requires the gear-shift lever be in the neutral or park positions to start the engine.
