I used to do the same when we had a 7740 with a loader, you get used to it, but I often did consider relocating the forward reverse lever to the left hand side of the dash, with the cable it should be easy enough but ended up trading the tractor before it materialised.
How do you manage with the 9880 @nashmach ?

Oh yes, straight shuttle between 6th and high reverse!

I drove a tractor that a similar setup, for the life of me I cannot remember what but I think it was a Fiat 90 series and possibly a wan ten.
Oh I thought your 4610 was column change with the high, low, reverse lever to the left.
When we had a Q cab 7610 H pattern, I fitted a loader for a short time when the 6600 was out of action. I thought it would've been a great idea to have had the small gear stick for high, low & reverse to the left like the 3cyl models as I often found myself having to change the 2 gearsticks and using the left hand for the smaller one.

All on the right on the Zetor 10641 here . The joystick is mounted off the seat base , which is ideal . Elbow stays on the armrest . Red knob is backwards /forwards. I've often changed direction using left hand , using loader controls with right hand , and it's not hard to do .

Joystick up beside dash or front window is the work of the devil .

No straight floor change 8x2!

That cannot be a dairy farmers tractor, a grease gun none the less....

I had to keep changing position a few times , before I took that pic . That's the barest part of the floor .

I d grease the loader , and shear grab every week . Maybe twice .
As I was putting in silage this evening , it appears I change direction with my left hand , and keep my right on loader joystick .

I have 3 grease guns I'll have you know . 🤨All cheapys . Toptul, etc , but work fine . Left in strategic places, then I'll use them .
A lad I know was clearing out his shed and found three old grease guns, gave them to me. They were so old they didn’t take a cartridge, you just sucked up grease from a pail. The grease in them was like tar, was afraid to use it on anything other than digger bushes, made an attempt to fill it afterwards but fired it into a box quickly enough. Handy to have one on certain things, I’d grease the turnover shaft on the plough twice daily for example. But found leaving the gun in the tractor everything gets stuck to it and grease stuck to everything in the tractor. So I have a few guns that were around the place hung on a few machines.

Yea I hated having it in the tractor and didn’t fit in the toolbox so I hang it in a bit of a pto gaurd on the step. Taught it be in the way but never an issue and never seen anyone hitting it getting in and out. Only once in the last 3 years has a cartridge unscrewed snd fell off somewhere. The biggest problem is as it’s so easily accessible other drives take it sometimes and use it and leave it back when the cartridge is empty. Boils my blood. I do carry a spare cartridge in the manual holder on the front mower so handy enough.

Tony is very sound, a lot of our customers have bought tractors off him throughout the years and never had any issue that weren't looked after. I would get odd bits and pieces off him, If I was in the market for a tractor that size I would have no problem with buying off him

This is where I mounted the joystick in the TLA, any further forward and it's to far away. @c4l is that as high as yours? 20220112_195705.jpg20220112_195627.jpg

I think the stoll/nh mount for them is a flat plate that bolts down along the front of the mudguard, but it feels like a slight reach out to it
The mudguard is where they mount them on the TL but I didn't want to drill holes in the mudguard and it is a bit of a reach
