    Default 5x03 questions

    Today I looked at a 5203. I was surprised there was no parking brake on it.Our 5105 mfwd has a parking brake but no "park".The 5203 does have a Park position on the RH shifter, I drove a 5103 at the Empire Farm Days this summer and I thought it had a parking brake of some sort but cant remember the details. The salesman seemed a bit surprised too but didnt know for sure either. My questions 1) is there a parking brake that sets the brakes on the 5xo3 series tractor ? 2) how much $$ extra does a hydraulic remote valve (SCV in JD terms) generally run. I was a bit dissapointed that at least a single SCV isnt standard equipment. Thanks in advance.

    I have a 5203 and a 5205. On the 05 the brakes lock and on the 03 the transmission locks. I've come to prefer the 03's transmission lock. The SCV is $505 list.

    Thats correct, like you saw the brake is actually on the trans. lever...I think this a better design as it uncluters the operators area and is a positive lock system.
