6th gear at 15 mph sounds like a load of bull... Not buying that.

Why you take off on 2nd gear not 1st 

Author mikefromspace (24 days)
Wow, stop right there! You didn't even cover the clutch brake first! You
must first explain the operation of the clutch brake before any operation
of shifting or using that clutch! You know why I hope. As a veteran trucker
been in the seat of 50+ vehicles, best clutch shifting comes from first
watching rpm's and timing, but later you can do this just by feel and
timing. A new or rebuilt piston ring set will drop rpm's a lot faster when
cold, so knowing your rpm drop by testing it after warm up is critical,
since shifting by feel(experience) could snap a u-joint. (I snapped one
once w/a new engine).
You know you're good when you can shift at any speed above 15 and nobody
can feel it or even hear it in some trucks...but no grinding in any case. A
slight grind only upon takeoff from a dead stop is all you should ever

Extremely helpful sir, im getting my CDL in a few days now, kind of nervous
about what this training is comming at me

Author Conraildan (18 days)
great video, I have a dumb question, if you put it in first gear or any low
gear, is it necessary to give it gas? I understand it wont stall out if
you don't for 1 st gear or Low Gear on an 18 speed. ive been driving
automatics for years and now I have to drive a 10 speed again. I look
forward to your reply :)

Thanks for the video. I got my Class A in 2011, drove for a month, quit,
didn't do it again until late 2013. I was nervous about the time lapse and
watching this video helped me get back into the zone. That company went out
of business and I did other work until now, getting back into it and need
these refresher videos again.

That 1+5, 2+5 etc is clever, but I got km/h so I have to figure out a smart
system for that aswell, but I will use your idea as the basis. Also I was
also just searching youtube for help and first found a bunch of guys just
shifting, so this video was very educational, Thanks alot!

thanks for the info! it makes a lot of sense, like shifting a car but a
little more to it) I never been in a tractor cab yet, but JUST got the cdl
permit yesterday! shifting seems like itll be easier than air brakes and
coupling. (you should make a vid on air brakes)

Author Hamish Robertson (4 months)
i saw there was 2 reverse gears (one high range one low), is there any
difference in those two at all? thanks.

Will double clutching wear out your boots so you have to shift in socks?

How come your not wearing any pants lol.

Author jmh4ggg (3 months)
You need a little more experience before you start making videos...1-5 in
newer trucks you can idle shift...or shift up at about dont
have to "wind it out" until 6-10 because those are speed gears

Author Jared Biggs (5 months)
You dont have to use the clutch at all, unless your stoping or taking off.
When you have a trailer you push in the clutch and put itin 2, slitly let
off the clutch while giving it some gas. Then after your moving and you rpm
is higher than 1500 rpm let off the gas and put it in 3 and etc. When
stoping just push or pull it out of gear and push on the brakes lightly. If
you do it your way your clutch and transmission will have to be adjusted
often and might have a possible chance of breaking the transmission.

When you are transferring from low range to high range, do you flick up the
little switch while you're in fifth gear or when you're transferring from
fifth to sixth?

Author Brian Martin (3 months)
When coming to a stop to make a turn while not having to stop should I find
my low gear first or float and catch a gear after my turn? 

Author J SLiM (5 months)
Started off driving 13 speed. Had to adjust to 10 speed for a new job. This
was very informative. Thank you 

Author John Deertag (5 months)
This is not how you double clutch in a semi you would grind every gear if
you push the clutch in that far you only push it in two inches max when
double clutching a rig if you push it to the floor the clutch break engages
and you'll grind every gear every time I know I drive truck every day and
know the proper way to double clutch and float the gears

Thank you for sharing this video,i just started driving a ten speed
today.The first day was a little rough but im sure watching your video i
will only get better

Author kowal789 (5 months)
I'm sorry but I noticed you explained by clutching all the way. This is
incorrect. Trucks have a clutch brake that activated after a certain clutch
depth has been achieved. To disengage the clutch without activating the
clutch brake, you only need 2-3 inches of clutch travel. Constantly fully
clutching will prematurely wear the clutch brake.

Author Joseph J Wang (1 month)
Thank you for this detailed video. Just a question on the last part about
the traffic light turning green. Being that 10th and 5th are in the same
location... Let's say you're in 10th and need to got 5th for speeds a bit
below 15 mph, do you just push down to low range? or do you have to shift
out of 10th, press down on low range, double clutch back into 5th

Author jarrett wendling (5 months)
very good video but one thing u forgot is in an unsycronized trans pushing
the clutch in all the way engauges the trans break which is very important
not to engage it when you are moving

great help with the speedo count.cheers

Author Rafik Adam (6 months)
how about skipping double clutch and rev up the engine revelation up for
about 400 rpm to ensure gear change and shift up to the next gear? would
that be possible?

Author kowal789 (5 months)
I haven't found a video of a somebody downshifting with a jake on. I think
I will do that. Easy peasy. 

Author Westin Jones (2 months)
you do not push the gas to take off in a diesel use the right gear its not
a car this guy isn't showing the right way to shift at all its all wrong

Author Bob Koss (8 months)
Your double clutching is way too deep on the clutch pedal.

Author Melisa Arnold (2 months)
You dummie!! You are making it harder for first timers to learn!!! Clutch
is only for stops and starts..Your left leg must be twice the size of your
left..Faster to learn no clutch the faster it is to learn

You don't depress have to depress the clutch all the way down..! Just a 1/4
press on the clutch is good enough..

Author Juan Andres (6 months)
Downshift is kinda difficult
