    Just thought I would ask on this forum, does anyone know any details about a 756 shifter kit upgrade to this unit and what that would involve changing and cost? Would it be something to look into?

    Wow, I will try that Barry, thanks for the tidbit. I've used the TA but I don't think I shifted with the TA engaged, it's in direct right now. I sure do like this tractor, it's strong for a 72 hp.
