This range eliminates shifts into fourth gear. The transmission will operate normally in first and second gear.

Shifts into third may be delayed to provide second gear operation at higher speeds. Using the 3 range while operating the vehicle under heavy operating conditions will improve performance and extend transmission life by reducing excessive shifting and heat build-up. The 3 range should also be used when descending steep grades to avoid brake system distress.
