Hi guys,
for a TD6-62 series with a drott 4 in 1, what transmissions were available?
I am looking at one with 4 forward and 1 reverse gear. My td-340's have shuttle shift, which i really like.

I dont know much other than the my TD 340's and 2504 with shuttle shift. 4 speeds with one reverse were usually agricultural crawlers, so my first question would be that maybe someone mounted a drott on a ag crawler. aldo thought that maybe by the time td6-62's came out, ag crawlers may not have been offered.

are there other TD6 options that would be better? powershift??
I would assume that there would be a better choice with the drott - figure one reverse speed would would limit reverse work - back blading, hauling loads backward etc.

any advice would be appreciaed.
thanks.

Someone could have mounted a 4in1 on a ag tractor, but it should be pretty obvious. The undercarrage should look like that one that the guy scrapped in the post I put up yesterday.

I would have thought there would be 2 reverses and 4 forward speeds but since I never owned a DROTT I don't know much about them.
1 T20
1 TD14A
3 TD9s
And some TD14 street tracks and chains and sprockets I'd like to sell.

If I remember correctly, the TD-6 61/62 and TD-9 91/92 series were available with either one or two reverse gears, in all the loader/dozer configurations.

According the parts book the later TD-6 (D-248) tractors had an option of replacing the third forward gear with a second reverse to give 4 forward 2 reverse against the standard 5 forward 1 reverse gear-box
1937 O-12 (s/n OS-2346), 1941 W-4 (s/n BH2381), 1948 Farmall Super A (s/n FAA253980), 1961 D-214 Standard (German, s/n NT306988).

I am changing my 4 & 2 to a 5 & 1. My Drott is a 6K3, my tranny was toast when I got it. To save a little I cut the 2nd rev of the reverse idler.

The TD6-62 Drott was not offered with a powershift transmission - only manual shift. The engine was a 282 direct start diesel producing around 55 hp. A 70-75 hp version of the 282 was used on the TD9-92 and later 150 loader and TD-9B.
