The cab comes standard with heat and air conditioning, have an option of any kind of radio that you would like, it is pre-wired with the speakers. Some other optional attachments are a rear, windshield washer, and rear windshield wiper.
The tractor has lots of standard features though, the first one you'll notice when you get into the cab is the tilt steering wheel which makes it very easy to get into the cab and very accessible for operator comfort. The tractor is a hydro-static transmission so it has the low, medium, and high range lever. Within each range, there is a low and high lever up here on the dash so you really have like six ranges. You have a hydro-static foot pedal here forward and reverse.
There is an auto throttle advance option which is actually standard on this tractor up on the dash as you're driving you can push this button and what that does is, when its engaged when you push forward on the hydro-static pedal, the engine RPMs will speed up with the hydro-static transmission. Its almost like just driving a car. we step on the pedal, it speeds up, we let off it slows down.
There is a stall guard which is an option this tractor has -- If you're using a loader and you pull into a pile of dirt or stones instead of the engine stalling out, the engine will slow down so it gives you some extra pushing power into a pile of dirt or stones or other materials. This tractor does not currently have a loader on it, but it does have the lever standard from the factory for the joystick for the loader as your standard controls that raises the loader up and down and tilt your bucket side up and down.
It also has a button here which is a throttle button. The purpose of that is, if you're going forward with the tractor loader and you don't want to take your hand off with a loader control and operate the throttle and you can have a preset on your display mode, on your dash. You can preset a speed that you can hit this button and your throttle will speed up to help you to do other functions with the loader.
There are several different display modes that you can change on the monitor on the dash panel which will tell you different like your RPMs, your power take off speeds and so on. This also has a cruise control button up on the dash panel. This cruise control can be set and then can be speed up or slow down as you're operating the tractor everything is at your fingertips on the right hand side.
Besides your loader control, you have your throttle control, the three point hitch lever. This does have a live independent power take off she pushed in yellow knob down and turn it to engage the power take off. if you put any rear hydraulic remotes on the tractor those two levers would be put right here. This does have some exterior light switches as well as the dome light inside the cab, has your cup holder, has a power port for 12 volt charging. That's it.
