Wow, do all the Fords have the limited slip or just certain models?

I think most all hydro's with the 2500 Peerless have it, but I haven't really researched this. I didn't realize the Ford had it until I tried pushing some dirt with the push blade and the left tire was spinning right along with the right tire. (This was before weights were added)

I never thought of this before, I went back and looked at the "Pull" vids I did with the Ford and Craftsman. Both have the hi/lo pearless, and I didn't see any shifting traction between the tires on either durring the pulls. But I did notice some traction transfer while pulling the trailer.



And after watching the trailer drag again, I agree, these have limited slip diff's.....cool learned something new about mine.

Looking at the still on the tractor pull, you can see the Ford digging with both tires.

The ags on the Craftsman both were spinning too. I did learn one other thing when we were pulling. it is possible to "stall" the hydro, where the belt driven Craftsman didn't labor at all. Both in 3rd Lo.

PS, The pull off was a one time event. I was curious, and my buddy came in from ElPaso for a visit.
