For operators requiring more field speeds to achieve the most precise operating ranges, as well as for quickly moving from task to task with transport speeds of up to 40.23 km/h (25 mph), the 32F/16R PowrReverser Plus transmission is the ideal choice. This transmission provides 32 forward speeds and 16 reverse (32F/16R) speeds for the ultimate in speed selection. The transmission provides convenient push-button controls like the electrohydraulic high/low selector.
Gear-shift lever with high/low selectors
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. Customers can push the rabbit button (high) without having to depress the clutch to get a 20 percent increase in speed. They can also push the turtle button (low) to get a 20 percent decrease in speed, similar to downshifting or engine braking without having to grab another gear. The 32F/16R transmission includes the Infinitely Variable Shuttle control feature. The PowrReverser 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 directional lever be in the neutral position to start the engine.
32F/16R transmission includes:
- Wet clutch
- Platform-mounted shift levers (four gears, four ranges, with hi/lo selector)
- Left-hand reverser (F to R without clutching)
- Constant-mesh, helical gears
- Pressure-lubricated top shaft
- Positive park paw
- Neutral start switch
All tractors have economy power take-off (E-PTO) (a fuel saving feature) that allows customers to operate rear implements at 540 PTO rpm but at lower engine rpm. The result is lower engine vibration, reduced noise, less wear and tear on the engine, reduced fuel consumption and increased operator comfort.
See PTO functional area for more information on E-PTO.
