Hi Tom

I have emailed you the hydrashift manual powerrabbit gave me, it should answer your questions. The service manuals are probably more extensive in info but i dont have them pdf'd.

basically two hydraulic clutch packs with epicyclic reductions mounted to them, without preasure the drive goes through reductions, hydraulic preasure to the clutch packs locks up the drive to 1:1 , different sequences of the 2 packs will give you 4 speeds, hexashift is a good system the soft wear seems better in the claas compared to the mf, mf was dyna 6 was a nightmare when launched, sooner have the quad shift(dynashift) but they days are gone
