Mechanical Shift Control Systems

Orscheln Products designs and manufactures mechanical shift systems for automatic transmissions. Orscheln Products can provide the entire system, or just the components for both OEM applications as well as the aftermarket. Shift levers are available in Side Push Button, T-Handle Release and Top Push Button Release configurations. A shift “system” would consist of a shift control lever, a control cable, and a transmission connection kit.

Valve Control

Orscheln Products offers a variety of lever operated valve controls, from the traditional spring centered valve control lever to heavy duty levers in standard and push button, gated configuration. Also available, the traditional “dump body” style controls in both the rugged, T- release type “Felsted™ shifter” and the economic, side push button release, NG shifter styles. Orscheln Products can provide optional mounting towers in single, double and triple configurations also connection kits and hardware.

Pump Control Systems

Dump Body controls are available on both Side Push Button and T-Handle Release configurations. Pump controls are also available for “FNR” functions in friction lever, gated and non-gated configurations for hydrostatic and other direction control applications. Pump control applications can generally be solved with one of the standard products in either the shifter or heavy duty lever design.
