    1025r Lost 4WD- Lever Sloppy Now

    Happened today while snow blowing, fortunately I was almost done.

    Took the machine out of 4wd, and it came out, but then when I tried to put it back in, there's just a lot of play in the lever and it won't engage. Lever is still attached at the transmission, but I can't see any pin, nut or bolt very well on the linkage as everything was covered in ice and snow, and it's difficult to access within us removing the right side shroud.

    Any ideas? Anyone experienced a similar problem?

    Does anyone by chance have a diagram of how the 4wd lever attaches to the transmission? Hoping it's a simple linkage problem and nothing internal.

    Thanks in Advance

    I'd have to dig deeper into the transmission drawings to find where it's connected to, but you can start with the pin that's shown on that drawing.

    I still have mine disassembled from the "Independent Lift" install as I'm awaiting electrical terminals for added wiring. So I took a photo of the where the lever connects to the transaxle:

    There is not a whole lot there to go wrong external to the transaxle, short of the roll pin falling out or being sheered off.

    Just to make sure we're not over thinking this, it is not uncommon to require things to turn a bit one way or the other so the teeth of the gears will mesh. I had to do this with my new 1025R when taking delivery/loading it, at the dealership, for the 4wd lever to engage fully (so I could brake lock all four wheels). Did you try rocking it forward or reverse lightly while applying gentle pressure on the lever?

    Im familiar with what you're talking about and its certainly not that. Theres zero resistance on the lever and it just flops around.

    I'm going to my local dealer to buy a new pin, and i'll start there. If it does turn out to be internal, i'm not tackling it myself, i'll tow it to the dealer.

    I hope you didn't take any offense. I was assuming by the age of your machine and the attachments you have, you'd be well beyond that in machine knowledge. However, I've learned the definition of "ass-u-me" one to many times.

    Based on your last reply, I'm thinking the roll pin is either gone or sheered. Let's hope for that.

    No offense taken by any means. I wish the issue was that simple.

    I picked up the pin today, for a whopping $0.97. hopefully I'll be able to get to it without too much issue.

    I've had to replace the shear pin on my mfwd lever 3 times now. This doesn't surprise me.

    When I'm driving, moving in and out of mfwd takes some extreme force. Its easier when you are not moving

    I've had a 2210, 2305, 1026r and now 1025r , Have never put any of the tractors in 4wd while the tractor was moving. Was told by the dealer not to do this.. Yes I will take it out of 4wd while moving.

    According to the manual
    Using Mechanical Front Wheel Drive (MFWD)

    Mechanical front wheel drive (MFWD) enables the powertrain to drive both front and rear axles for improved traction on difficult ground conditions and provides 4-wheel braking. MFWD can be engaged and disengaged on-the-go with light loads and on low traction surfaces.

    So just wondering are you doing this at full speed or what ,,
