    Default Do power reverser tractors have cruise?

    Do the smaller power reverser utility tractors have cruise control?

    Likely not.
    The Deere HST do in forward, not in reverse.

    I just saw this asked in the kubota forum as well.

    What is behind the question?

    I want a used tractor, can't afford new. I think I would prefer a power reverser but would like cruise for slow tasks like mowing, tilling etc.

    Power reversers are geared tractors. Gear ratio and engine speed sets your ground speed. Kind of ironic that all non-HST tractor models come equipped with cruise control and never even advertise it.

    Good point.

    It's so obvious that the obvious is overlooked.

    I've got cruise-control in all 8 gears.

    Yep, and I responded to the question in the Kubota forum.

    This thread and question should probably been in the more generic "Owning/Operating" forum.
