If you have switch #5, then you should get the two speed switch to work for travel.graphic

Sorry about the post being broken up, I am have computer trouble.

Here is how the switch should work.

Multifunction Switch for the Left Hand Trigger (5)

This switch is used to toggle the function of the trigger on the left-hand
joystick between Two Speed and the Auxiliary Electrical Function "AUX 7".




Two Speed







Two Speed - Push the top of the switch in order to use the trigger
for the two speed control. Press the trigger and release the trigger on the
front of the left-hand joystick in order to activate rabbit mode. In order to
return to single speed, press the trigger and release the trigger
again.

Note: Keep the work tool close to the ground when you travel in rabbit
mode. This method will maximize the stability of the machine.

Note: Do not move the multifunction switch while the Two Speed
function is active. Ensure that the machine is in single speed mode before the
Auxiliary Electrical Function "AUX 7" is activated.

Note: The creeper must be turned off in order to shift the machine
into two speed. If you activate the creeper, the machine will return to single
speed. If you set the parking brake, the machine will return to low speed.

Auxiliary Electrical Function "AUX 7"

Note: If the switch is not present, the trigger on the left-hand
joystick only provides this auxiliary function.







Auxiliary Electrical Function "AUX 7" - Push the bottom of the switch
in order to activate the seventh auxiliary electrical function. Pull the trigger
and hold the trigger on the left-hand joystick in order to provide electrical
power to pin (B) on the work tool connector on the loader arm. Release the
trigger in order to deactivate the control.

Had to reboot, major update hit me while working on your answer.

 

This is how you could adjust the machine controls.

 

The up/down arrows would be on the right hand upper console. This is an optional attachment too. It would also allow you to check fault codes and some of the machine parameters. A great option if you have it.

Buttons # XXXXX & # XXXXX are the adjustment arrows. The button #5 is to check machine info and fault codes.
