Sherman Step-Down

What is the Sherman Step-Down Transmission?

The Sherman Step-Down transmission worked the same as the Step-up except it lowered the gear ratios rather than raised them to give the tractor a slower ground speed. The Step-down used the same gear case as the Step-up transmission but was painted red instead of the gray like the Step-up. The Step-down transmission, available with cable or lever shift, is an extremely rare find today.
