So my tractor only has 200 hours on it. While traveling down my driveway with no load on the machine it came to an instant stop. Now when in low and mid range the machine won’t move. When in neutral it seems like it is in high gear. High gear still works like it should. Has anyone had this happen? Or know what might have happened?

Is this a 4052R with a Hydrostatic transmission and a Cab?

There is a crazy amount of linkage between the range selector lever and the range select shaft on the side of the eHydro transmission. It sounds possible that some of this linkage has become loose or bent and you now only have access to the rearmost range selection position which is C.

I would be inspecting that linkage to see if it is all still properly attached and not bent. Fortunately, most of that linkage (all the way to the shaft on the transmission) is easily viewed from the back of the tractor on the left hand side under the rear of the cab.

Let's hope it is a linkage problem and not something inside the transmission.

that will happen if you accidently hit both forward and reverse pedals at same time. Also, as you stated "when in neutral it seems like in high gear"
Well how the heck is the thing gonna seem like its in any gear if you have in neutral? you are making me nuts with that comment

Did you bump the range lever?

I have a 2020 4052m, 40 hrs, was cutting light brush in low gear and it all of a sudden it made a squeal/grinding sound under the engine area and slammed to a hault. I moved about 20 more feet and it did it again and permanently locked and will not move in any gear except for neutral. It has been at the dealership for a month now and I still don't have an answer as to what the problem is. Sad when a $40000 tractor breaks down at 40 hrs. I have work to do. And how much does this cost to fix if it happens out of warranty?

My tractor with same hours has exact same problem. low and mid do not move but seem like in a bind, hi and neutral are both hi. What did your problem end up being? I can't figure it out.

I wouldn't hold my breath for a response from either of the 2 posters that you quoted. Both are "one post wonders" .
That always pisses me off, come here asking for help and don't have the courtesy of a follow
up with a resolution of the issue. :(
