    Gator 825i won't go in 4 wheel drive.

    My 2011 Gator 825i doesn't go into 4 wheel drive when flipping the switch. I don't hear anything from the solenoid. What can I check?

    If you can get to the solenoid make sure the wire is plugged in by disconnecting it and plugging it back in. After that if you get noting check if you are getting power to the solenoid. If you are getting power it is most likely that the solenoid died.

    Front tires don't pull until the rears are spinning ~15% faster than fronts are turning.

    Basically, it's AWD... instead of 4WD

    I just never understood why the manufactures do this. I'm not really sold on it either.
    It's like, get stuck first then 4WD kicks in, maybe you get out, maybe not.

    I think about this with pickups also. With the automatic locking hubs, you have to have forward motion for them to lock. If you are parked somewhere and it snows or ices and you can't move, you can't get it into 4WD.

    Usually for fuel mileage. That and God forbid you have to get out to lock the hubs. Especially if you were to lazy to do it before you got stuck in 12" of mud.
    Every single system ever designed to improve on locking hubs has some Achilles' heel that renders it useless. Usually when you need it the the most.

    Had that happen to me but not on ice.
    I had the truck backed up tight to a barn, a slight incline going away from the barn doors. Loaded up hay went to move,, there I sat.
