    Runaway 1025R

    So yesterday I parked my 1025R behind my garage on a small slope . Left tractor in L and no park brake. heard a big crash an hour later and tractor had rolled downhill about 100 feet backwards while still in forward L gear (engine off)
    Made some strange noises when starting but still seems to work ok. Does anyone think there may be damage to transmission?
    Thanks DOH!

    Hmm... I hafta stare at schematic but... you made the hydrostatic motor function as a pump (by driving it backwards, right?) does anybody know what that does?? does it open overpressure ports or something?
    Reminds me of a 2440 at Tufts I parked at the top of a 10' embankment bordering the service road (Jumbo Drive by the old Bull Barn IYCTK), in neutral with the parking brake on (which we were supposed to do) not knowing someone had burned the brake out by leaving it on underway (which we werent supposed to do). Was in the loft pitching bales for the morning chores when the tractor got lonely and followed me down the hill... Because I had put the bucket on the ground (which you should always do) it was only in the air through the rolloff the crest of the hill. then it bottomed out on the concrete walkway= bend bucket and a tractor I had to tow uphill with another 4WD (a Ford TW-30 no less!!). Had the bucket been up She'd have made a new doorway and plopped into the depressed bull pens inside, and I would be explaining to the farm Director...Oh yeah, as usual was the only one on the farm of a Saturday morning
    Lessons? always ground your hydraulics if you can
    dont trust what others have done to your tractor!!

    Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

    They say never tow a hydrostatic drive tractor without placing in neutral or using the appropriate method to put the hydraulic circuit into bypass. I'd recommend you use it and pay attention to any noises or performance issues. Hopefully you'll be A-OK.

    Runaway 1025R

    It probably took all hour to move that distance. I donít know enough about it to say for sure one way or the other, but if it was possible to drive that way under just gravity net the engine compressive load, Iím thinking itís okay.

    Important safety tip, however. I didnít know that was possible.

    That's happened to at least two members here that I can remember...ETcallhome and PSRumors, neither has reported any tranny issues tat I can recall.

    Some searching might turn up their threads.

    Wrecked the tractor, likely totaled - How's the insurance?

    Kenny, I believe this is the thread where they discuss this.

    I copied the entire thread because the reading is in several different posts.

    Unfortunately it took all of about 10 seconds as while it was a gentle slope at the start it went steep very quickly and I heard the whole journey. I didnít know what happened at the time but it sounded like someone threw aluminium ladders down the stairs. Was too busy today to try it again but will keep everyone updated shortly.

    Thank you to everybody for your input. Fingers crossed.

    I doubt you will have any issue. It has the overloads to protect it but glad it wasnít worse.

    Hmm... I read your original post as ďan hour laterĒ, what happened for the first 59 minutes to make it all the sudden take off?

    Just trying to get a picture of what happened here.

    Just speculating here. My advice sucks but I have a hard time keeping my mouth shut so here goes nothing.

    From my understanding of a hydrostatic drive system, itís basically a box full of hydraulic fluid with 2-4 ports with valves. Push the forward pedal, and one port opens while the other closes, making the tractor go forward. Push the reverse pedal and the other valve opens and closes the forward port. When not pushing any pedal, both valves are open halfway creating equal hydraulic pressure in the box and the tractor doesnít move unless that balance is disrupted. Leaving it on an incline probably forced an imbalance in the block and pushed the reverse ports open a little making it roll backwards. This should be a closed system, and unless it accelerated beyond normal capacity, it should be fine.
