Just a simple set of choices for the operator. I think the total selections total 21 from the seat and 6 from the side for starting.

Good to look back to a basic system.

That looks to pretty to put to work. Did they shine like back in the day. Very nice and lots of work.


I am assuming winch handles as well as hydraulics on the left. So other than more hydraulic valves what other options could be added to this tractor? Thinking you cannot have PTO and winch at the same time,but I know not to challenge a bunch like this. LOL

Thanks for your comments.
The tractor has done a few jobs in the last year and was at the National Pike show last August and Bowling Green in September,
In the pictures above it is just back from skidding a couple of logs.
In the second picture, on the right fender:
First lever is for the Hyster D4N winch. In the center as in the picture, neutral, back is cable in, forward is cable out. (set up as overwind).
Second lever is winch brake.
Next is the Cat blade control - all the way forward is float, 1 notch back from float is power down, next is hold, all the way back is blade up.
Not in view is the selector to run the rear hydraulics - it is a single valve, so not very handy to use with the tool bar.
This tractor does not have an oil clutch. It has the 5H607 gear group which gives a high and low reverse gear, and a lower first gear ratio.
The D4N winch could have a a cable control attachment mounted on top. As you said, no way to get a rear mounted PTO.

That is very nice work and attention to detail.
I would love to have owned one with the two speed reverse. Or even just operated one to feel the difference. Doubt many, if any, made it over here.
