Default How do ducks work?

Iím not familiar with these at all, so taking a TBW 175 as an example, does the drive have more than one speed? And those hydraulic pistons over the rear axle; what do they do- oscillation lock perhaps? I note Taks donít generally seem to have stabilisers fitted.

Iíve probably asked this before, but does anyone flail on the move with one? They do seem to have decent aux flow. I know the Hydradig is capable of this.

Pardon my ignorance.

They use web feet to paddle around, and flap their wings to Fly about ��

On my Case I've got 3 speed high low ranges on box, up to 32kph in high, the pistons your referred to are floating axle locks on front steering axle, often lock either via manually or auto with the working brake locked down, as for flailing most are capable, but often drive train takes priority over working equipment, all depends on how they're set up, as you say the Hydradig 110W is set up so no loss to flail, as its hydastatic drive rather then gear pump

Hope it makes sense, no doubt the experts will be around soon ��
