    Default Rotating operators position

    Small video of changing the direction the operator faces on a Ferrari Cobram Bi-directional tractor. A real Back saver.

    Thanks, that is amazingly easy; sure couldn't figure it out, very impressive engineering.

    Wow, are the shifters backwards then. It didn't look like they moved? Does that confuse you a little or do you get used to it. That sure would be handy for some things.
    I've heard about problems with pushing with a threepoint. Does this tractor have a special threepoint or do you just have to be careful?

    Cool tractor, Electrarc.

    Tucker,

    Yes the shifters are backwards but they are clearly labelled and so easy to use. The steering left/right changes automatically. The three point is a quick connect, but it pushes a standard brush hog no problem. A post hole digger is just so easy to use even on a slope.



    Cheers

    That looks like it would be much easier to use a post hole digger in that machine than a regular tractor. No crook in the neck afterwards.

    Take care
