    1-Is it ok to run 3500 all day? Or just just when doing heavy work?
    2-what do you usually run at in general?
    3-when do you use low & high speed
    4-when do you use 4wd?
    5-when do you lock the wheels
    6-and anything else I'm not thinking about

    1. You can run wide open all day every day if needed, they were made for it.
    2. Run it where needed. PTO equip, run at PTO speed. Other work, run as necessary to complete the task at hand.
    3. High for road travel, low for work.
    4. Use 4wd as needed with poor traction, hills ground engaging equipment. Not on pavement or concrete.
    5. Diff lock when 4wd isn't enough
    6. Use what you need to get the job done, and enjoy!

    I'm in FWD most of the time I'm doing work because most of my property is slooped, the FWD gives you 4wheel braking which makes it much safer on hills.

    How does running in FWD give you 4wheel braking?

    The front and rear wheels are "locked" together when in FWD, so the effect of braking the rear wheels also transfer to the front-as long as the front wheel have traction.

    Otherwise tractors only have brakes on the rear axle. Locking in the front differential will allow that axle to help stop you. Same as it helps pull you out of a low traction situation.

    Plus being in Fwd allows the front wheels to be locked in when you set the parking brake. Piece of mind when on slopes or crawling under your machine.

    I'll say this, a diesel is designed to run at PTO speed all day but use it and just learn. Mowing for instance I run about 2500, you can run wide open but if not totally necessary all you are really doing is burning fuel. Low range when working tractor, high range for travel.

    That's what I thought, as I knew the front wheels do not have brakes as stated, at least mine does not.
