Handy gear change

FOOT-FREE gear and shuttle changes are now possible on all Valmet Mezzo and Mega tractors.

The new Hi-Shift gear changing option, launched at SIMA, comprises a single button mounted on speed, range and shuttle levers. It is designed for use as an alternative to the conventional foot clutch, electro-hydraulically engaging and disengaging the drive.

When the button is released, drive engagement occurs immediately if travelling over 2.5mph, and progressively if below 2.5mph. &#42
