This lever has three positions, FORWARDS,  ZERO and REVERSE. Use this lever for reversing the driving direction and for adjusting the speed. Move the lever forwards to drive forwards. Move the lever backwards to reverse (reversing horn sounds if installed). The further the lever is moved forwards or backwards from the ZERO position, the greater is the driving speed. To stop the machine, move the lever into the ZERO position.
