HT-750 CRD RANGE SELECTOR POSITIONS
Use this for backing the vehicle. The vehicle should be completely stopped
before shifting from a forward gear to reverse gear or from reverse to
forward. The reverse warning signal is activated when the range selector is
in this position. Reverse operation provides the vehicle with its greatest
tractive advantage. Reverse has only one gear.
Use this position when you start the engine. If the engine starts in any other
position, the neutral start switch is malfunctioning. Neutral position is also
used during stationary operation of the power takeoff (if your vehicle is
equipped with a PTO). Use neutral when the vehicle will be left unattended
while the engine is running-always apply the parking brake.
Use this one for all normal driving conditions. The vehicle will start in 1st
gear and as the accelerator is depressed, the transmission will upshift to 2nd
gear, 3rd gear, 4th gear, and 5th gear, automatically. As the vehicle slows
down, the transmission will downshift to the correct gear, automatically.
3, and 2) Occasionally, the road, load, or traffic conditions will make it
desirable to restrict the automatic shifting to a lower range. When the
conditions improve, return the range selector to the normal driving position.
These positions also provide progressively greater engine braking power (the
lower the gear range the greater the braking effect).
This is low gear-use this one when pulling through mud and snow or driving
up steep grades. This position also provides maximum engine braking
In the lower ranges (1, 2, 3, and 4), the transmission will not upshift
above the highest gear selected unless the recommended engine governed
speed for that gear is exceeded.
