yep.. 4spds were tall..
5spds better.. but wasn't untillt he 8spd came out that they finally got a few useable gears... not counting the sos 10spds..
I use the lowest gears on the mf 6290 that I use to pull the mixer wagon while feeding the cows and have MANY times I could use a lower gear. I have to go forward and back a few times while trying to get all the feed out of the wagon in the space available. lower gears would let me do it in one pass.Attachment 281504
Sounds like a good thing they invented Hydrostat trannies
That was my reaction when I took my gate of the hinges when clear dirt next to my shed. I realized had I been creeping I would, or at least might, have had time to react before I created more work for myself. I now I use it any time I'm smart enough to realize I might end up saying "now you've done it"!Quote:

I've also seen implements where a rider (on the implement) manually plants saplings. This is a very slow speed operation.
The creeper gear was to allow high engine speed--whether for running an implement or just for pure pulling power--while giving a lower ground speed.
