F36/R36 Dual Speed Transmission (M9540 Cab Dual Speed model)

Hydraulic Shuttle
 
Better than ever, our Hydraulic Shuttle for the M40 Series makes shifting between forward and reverse smooth and quick.  
 
With the Hydraulic Shuttle, the column-mounted lever, conveniently located next to the steering wheel, does all the work.  
 
Boost productivity, especially while using loaders, by eliminating the need to depress the clutch every time you change directions.   And when attaching implements, our improved inching feature is easy to perform, giving you the same feel as a half-clutch operation.
