 43-4400 series HST JD Range selector popping out?

I own a JD 4400 HST. I have noticed a problem with this and wondered if anyone else has. Many times while grading on hills, I have had my head over my right shoulder watching what my implement is doing, and in this position I will inadvertantly knock the tractor into neutal with my left hip. Just to get one thing straight, I am not a huge guy, but when I swivel around to watch my scarifier or box scraper it happens from time to time. Here is the kicker.....when it happens before the implement has gotten into the ground and you are headed downhill you are in a freefall if you don't get the thing into the ground quick. I think this is dangerous, just wondered if anybody else has had this happen. Thanks for your help

Turfman, I have a 4400HST but have never experienced the problem you describe. I also have big thighs. I think I turn and look over my right shoulder more than my left. Maybe my seat is up further than yours? There is also a different shift linkage on 4400s built since March 2000 (at least). If your machine is older you can upgrade to the newer linkage, but I don't know if it would help your situation or not.

That does sound like a safety issue. I'd be tempted to bungee cord the selector in place and stick to operating in one range on hills. However, something that holds constant tension on the selector may not be good for the TX. Maybe somebody knows.

I have 153 hours on my 4400 and have never knocked the range selector out when turning to look back.
