    Default Ford 5600 Question

    A friend of mine owns a Ford 5600. It has a lever on the left side of the dash panel that is vertical and about 6 inches tall. It looks factory installed. He bought the tractor used and he has no idea what it's used for. I haven't driven the tractor so I could only guess what it's for. Any ideas?

    That is the control lever for the Dual Power. It is a two speed power shift that can be shifted on the fly to split every gear.

    Thanks! I thought it might be a high/low shift. I'll let him know. If it was my tractor I would have already tried it out.
