broken TD-6

Recommended Posts

Need help. TD-6 with  Drott loader bucket add says bad transmission, don't know what's wrong. What needs to be done to drag onto rollback truck ? Or do we just drag it. Thank you for any help/info

Does it run?  If so start it and raise the bucket.  Pull back both steering levers.  If the steer clutches are not froze up it should roll pretty easily and none of the trans components will be turning.  If one or both clutches are froze it could be a tough pull.  Not much to go on so far.  Not sure what the weight is but hope rollback truck has a healthy winch.

IF your rollback is hydraulic powered winch,--dont bother hooking on to it!----Trust me, they wont skid a dead 6! ---Better have a big pusher on the other end to help! --- If its been sitting very long, tracks could be stuck as well. ---- THEN the real fun starts!  

The guy that hauled my 9 to the junkyard found out how hard is is to dead-skid these things! lol!!!

rolling not the same as dragging.....

use a block and tackle with the winch if needed

IF it would start and run just long enough to help load itself your winch should get it on without any problem! ---It's the stuck track/bucket down/dead thingy that makes for the major problems of loading them! lol!! Good luck on your trip!
