Haven't been here in quite some time. My neighbor asked me to grade his driveway, it's about a 25 degree, and about a 100 yards from the road up to the house. When I used the rear blade, I noticed the front heels were not driving. The tractor is 7 years old, this is the first time I've engaged the 4 wheel drive, and the front wheels didn't work. Have to leave soon to go to the nursing home to feed my wife, so I haven't looked at it. Any ideas? Oh, I did have to add a quart of transmission fluid to her to bring the level up to full.

When you say you brought the fluid to full. Just wondering the sight glass is only half full when all attachments are down and transmission is cold. Or at least after setting for an hour after using...

As vt2305 just make sure it is in 4wd, try engaging several times

I would check the handle linkage first. Make sure it is actually moving something?

Okay I raised the front wheels off the ground with the front blade, shut her off engaged the 4WD leaver, and put the transmission in low. The wheels turn freely, and turning the driveshaft turns the wheels. I'm thinking there should be no movement in the driveshaft.

I would agree, assuming the 4x4, front wheel drive, was engaging in the transmission.

I've heard a few of the 1025R members have reported the roll pin that secures the 4x4 lever to the shaft protruding from the transmission has a tendency to vibrate out. When this happens, the lever is simply rotating on the shaft and not turning it, when moving the lever. I'd speculate that or something equally as simple is your issue. To prevent this on mine, I fed a piece of safety wire through the pin, around the lever and twisted the ends together to prevent the roll pin from vibrating out. I'd suggest this be done on all such tractors when the fender or other trim is off to simplify access.

Do the front wheels turn opposite each other? Try holding one from spinning and turn the other. If it's in 2wd it will soon. If 4wd it won't. Nearly certain. Lol I should probably check that on mine. But you have to isolate it from the front differential letting the wheels spin .
