 Kubota RTV 900-sticks in reverse

My new 900 was delivered last week. Generally I am very impressed with the machine. I have one problem, after backing up any small hill, the unit sticks in reverse. I have tried turning the steering wheel, letting off the brake and so on. Still remains firmly in gear.
Does anyone know if this is problem associated with the machine being new or Is there some adjustment I need to make?

Mine was real stiff like that when new. It will break in and get better.

I think the pressure in the HST tends to hold it in gear too. The only way I can get mine to shift easily is to use a firm foot on the brake pedal.

Have you tried the emergency brake?
I too have had problems on hills where it won't want to shift. Pull the emergency brake and then it "should" allow it to be taken out of (and into the next) gear without any tugging.

with kubota equipment, there is sometimes sticking in the transmissions. Just try backing up a little farther , just to engage the transmission, and then try again to take it out of gear. This works with my 3710

My RTV900 has about 15 hrs on it. It sticks in reverse at times and can't get it out any way except to kill the engine and then of course, it comes out easily. This seems to be acommon problem with these units. It would seem to me that this is a design flaw.

Ours just started this nonsense. We have 150hrs on the machine.

From the first day we got it, this machine would grind gears loudly when trying to shift into High range... even while the machine was sitting perfectly still, service brake applied and of course, moving from the neutral position. This should be no problem for a hydrostatic transmission where the machine stays in one gear any time the vehicle is in motion.

I was leary of any $10,000 machine that protests to being put into gear when at a stand-still. Now, its stuck in Reverse. We've tried several attempts at getting it out, and we've had no success as yet.

I'll try to remember to let you know how it works out.

Do you have enough room to backup and remove the lever as soon as you let up from the gas petal? Thru the years many transmissions have had identical problems that basically means finding a way to remove the load against the range lever.

Did you tweak it so it would make more power in reverse?
