    High N Low shifter hard to shift out

    We all know of the HnL shifter not wanting to go into gear all the time smoothly, but lately I'm feeling resistance coming out of Low sometimes to the point of bumping the fwd or rev a few times to almost unlock it but still feeling like I'm using way too much force to move that lever. Thinking about it I believe it happens when in 4x4 as well. This has also happened once while in high. Tractor is at 85 hours now. Seem normal????

    Mine shifted more difficult when I first got it. But it seems to shift easier as it gets older and has more hours on it.

    Same. I constantly have to remember NOT to be on the brake when shifting out as that seems to keep the gears loaded and makes it a fight (luckily no steep hills...) IFF I remember stop, sit, shift, brakelock, then shifting back in is easy apparently the lastly-applied p-brake freezes the output train and the gears will slide right back in...

    Normal

    I vote for normal. I don't know if it's related, but I think about when I park my truck on a hill and I let it sit back on it's transmission (if I forget the parking brake), it's always a little harder to get out of park. As for the tractor, a little tap of forward or reverse to shift from high to low or into neutral, or when shifting out of 4x4 - always been normal for my tractor.

    Normal. You are shifting a straight cut gear that needs to align in order to shift. You may have to bump the propel pedal to align the gear teeth. Same is true shifting it out of gear. It the gears are loaded it will be impossible to get them to shift. Again, bump the propel in reverse. You should also never try to shift the range shift on a hill unless you are really careful. If you get the range shift in neutral and not in the brake, the tractor will get away from you.

    If you're on flat level ground, when you take your foot off the pedals, does it creep forward or backwards? If you jack the backend up and put it in gear, do the wheels rotate even with your feet off the pedals? If so, you need to adjust the neutral position. https://www.greentractortalk.com/for...23e-1026r.html

    New machined gears with tight tolerances not wanting to align. I bump my pedals to get it in or out and it does the trick. Normal imo
