 NH HST drive

Some of you probably remember that I did not like the NH hydrostat when I was looking at buying a tractor a couple of years ago. I was down at the NH dealer this AM to make sure that he made enough money for the year to have a nice holiday dinner and I looked at a new TC40D that was on the lot. The hydro pedals are not the same as when I bought my TC45. Now the hydro is controlled with the right foot and the brakes with the left. This is the way it should be in my opinion and is a change in configuration from when I initially looked at this size tractor. So, as far as I know the big three all have similar HST and brake controls. I did not drive the tractor, but I am sure that it works fine.

I have been vocal enough about not liking the HST when I bought my NH that I thought that it was only fair to let everyone know that it looks like NH has changed.

 NH HST drive

Good to hear that engineers are getting some design time for this sort of thing. I remember the discussion where a new owner drove his HST tractor over an embankment because he used forward rather than reverse. We all program ourselves to do repetitive tasks automatically and reliably. Some control layouts just work better and produce fewer operating mistakes than others. There is research for studying this kink of thing but I forget what it's called.

I think it would be good if the control layout on all tractors were fairly standard and also similar to road vehicles. I know we all adapt to what ever controls we have but it would be good if we didn't have to think what we're doing if we operate a different tractor. Well, my column gear shift is on the left and after a long hard tractor day, I occasionally hop in my 1/2-ton and put it in drive with the turn signal. I feel pretty silly but I guess it's better than driving into a tree or something.
