What kinda tractor?
It's pretty easy... these 7.3s are so torquey that you don't need to worry bout stalling it, I've dropped the clutch in gear without touching the go pedal and took off lol.

as long as you know where the gears are just put it in first and it let out on the clutch and drive it wont take long to get used to!
