You Asked. We Answered.
What is the difference between shuttle and creeper gearboxes?
A creeper gearbox has reverse gear on the main stick, just like a car, It also has a high/low ratio and a creeper ratio allowing for extra slow speeds, ideal for planting or pulling tree stumps out of the ground when a bit of extra torque is needed.
A shuttle gearbox has a separate forward/reverse lever allowing the tractor to go at the same speed forward and backwards. It still has the high/low ratio but dos not have the creeper ratio. Ideal for loader work or scraping out.
What is a synchromesh gearbox?
A synchromesh h gearbox allows you to change gear on the move, ideal for road use. With a straight cut gearbox the tractor needs to be stationary for a gear to be selected. The tractors are powerful enough to take off in the appropriate gear. All Siromer tractors have straight cut gears apart from the 404CH Synchro and the 504CH which both have synchromesh gearboxes.
