    I have the above telehandler which seems to jump out of forwards or reverse on the shuttle stalk. It also seems to struggle to utilise the gears correctly and likes to stay in 1st are the two related?

    Would a new stalk be a potential fix for both?

    Hello

    Okay so the levers have the transmission ECU built in them and they are rather expensive well over £1k last time I looked if not £1500ish!

    the rubber boots on the levers get hard which often results in the lever jumping back to neutral, these rubber boots are cheap and not too difficult to replace although you will need a soldering iron to take the wires off and back on the kick down button.

    As for the gears this could be allsorts, the lever might want cleaning internally which I do not recommend you try yourself get some one like David King to do it for you although I don't think he likes them much!!!

    it could be a wiring issue on the back of the lever or down at the solenoids or a failed solenoid or even a failed clutch pack internal in the transmission.

    Well this all sounds fun. Is Sussex too far for you?

    That would be a fair trek yes. Better to get someone more local. I can always send info if needed to help them.

    This should be helpful. tells you what solenoids are used to get what gears. (assuming you have a 4 speed, if you have a 6 speed then there are a few more combinations so you will have to let me know if you got 6 gears)

    Brilliant thanks. Machine is new to me but seem store be behaving better today. New rubber rollers in the stalk might just sort it out.
    It's a 6 speed.
    Thanks

    ah okay will see if I can find the sequence for the 6 speed. wasn't many of them about IMO, same gearbox just a different ECU program.
