Automatic transmission makes it easy to choose the exact travel speed for each operating condition

E100 TractorE100 Tractor

Theautomatic transmission allows the operator to easily choose the desired forward or reverse travel speed bysimplydepressing a single foot pedal; this is similar to the way the driver of an automobilewith automatic transmission changes speedwhendepressingthe accelerator.

Whether a slow speed for trimming or faster speed for open-area mowingis desired, the operator can easily adjust by how far the foot pedal is depressed.

With the brake pedal depressed and the forward/reverse lever in the centerposition, the engine can be started. Once the engine is started, it is not necessary to use thebrake pedalwhen selecting forward or reverse. Simply move the forward/reverse lever to select travel direction, and then press theautomatic footpedal to choose from an infinite number of travel speeds.

Reverse implement option (RIO)
RIO switchRIO switch

Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged.

Theoperator who deems it necessaryto keep the mower (or other implement) engaged while backing up should first bring the tractor to a stop and look behind the tractor to be sure there are no bystanders. Then actuate (push in) the RIO button. The RIO button must be held down in the reverse implement position as the shift lever is moved into reverse (reverse foot pedal is depressed onmodels with a hydrostatic transmission).

The operator may then release the button and the mower will continue to operate while backing up and also whenresuming forward operation. This procedure must be repeated the next time the operator chooses to keep the mower engaged while backing up. If the mower power take-off (PTO) is engaged and the operator shifts into reverse or depresses the reverse pedal prior to pressing the RIO button, ignition to the engine will be shut off. The engine will stop unless the operator either pushes on the RIO switch or shifts out of reverse.

If the engine does stop, the operator must return the mower engagement (PTO) switch or lever to the off position, depress the brake pedal, and then turn the ignition switch to restart the engine.
