    I love the 12/12 Pow'r Reverser tranny's. I had one in my 4500. What's in your 4720? hydro?

    The PR is a rock solid trans that has been around for a long time. I have yet to hear anything bad about one. They are so easy to operate, and it's a true gear trans. No clutching needed, just flip a lever and the trans does the rest for you. I've never heard anything bad about the Powertech engines either.
