a couple round ones
That is SO FREEKIN helpful!!! Thank you very much!!!Well, (1) is the main gear shifter...
(2) is the old style diff lock (I think - mine is air powered)
(3) is the cascade
(4) is the reverser
(5) is the range shifter (normal, crawler,super crawler)
(6) don't know that one - it doesn't come up above the shift boot
EDIT: Oh wait - PTO shifter - duh. By the looks of your truck front end, you don't have a PTO
Oh. . . you can only shift into reverse in 1st & 2nd unless you have the full French "retreat option"
The exact operation depends on the transmission and shift pattern, but yes reverse can only be engaged in low range. For the 6-speed base pattern (404, some 406) which I think you have, where you engage low range 1st/2nd gear by moving the main gear stick hard to the left and high range 3/4/5/6th gear by a hard movement to the right, reverse can only be engaged in 1st/2nd. This is because the reverse gear is driven off the low range reduction shaft. In high range operation the reduction shaft is bypassed.... Is there a lock out for the forward & reverse lever, that the other levers have to be so you can shift from forward to reverse?
Felt fine driving it. Knew it was coming so was ready for a little lift. Opted not to trail build to fill the big hole that the passenger rear tire drove through. Could I have chosen a slightly different line? Perhaps, but again, well within the ability of the truck and really not that far of a lean - I've driven much more angle.YIKES!
How does you u500 handle in the snow?Another day, another rescue mission.
I've been lucky again to be able to demonstrate the mighty abilities of this forum's main topic to the world - Unimog of course.
This time the dump truck with pup got stuck in the snow.
Standard procedure of locking differentials, setting transmission in first gear and using recovery strap turned out to be enough again, to do the job.
