 Disengaging 4WD on JD4310 HST

Whenever I engage/disengage 4WD I don't feel anything different or hear anything engage/disengage. The owners manual says you may hear a "pop" when you engage 4WD. So the other day I tested by tilting the bucket forward to raise the front wheels. I engage 4WD and the front wheels turn when I hit the forward pedal. Then I shut 4WD off, press the forward pedal and again the front wheels again start turning. Sometimes I think my tractor is in 4WD most of the time. Does it take a while for 4WD to disengage?

My 4610 usually clunks within five seconds of hitting the switch to "off." I tried the bucket thing and my front wheels stop after a brief coast down. They spin with just a slight drag when out of MFWD. Sounds like it may be time to talk to the dealer.

I don't recall hearing a pop on mine when switching in and out but I do spend most of my time in 4wd. It's pretty obvious to me when 4wd is turned off by the way it behaves in dirt, but I've never tried the bucket test you describe. Does your 4wd light go on and off? Does the diagnostic light flash any codes?

Hmmmmm. I never hear a clunk when I disengage. Maybe the wheels turn but it's just drag. Could be. I do know that there have been situations in past where I was convinced it was engaging/disengaging from just the performance like you suggest Ken. The 4WD light goes on and off - no diagnostics codes. Everything is probably OK - I just get nuts about this stuff sometimes. But I will do some more checks. I just want to make sure everything works properly this year before my warranty expires.

I know most 4x4 trucks need to wait five seconds, put in netural, turn the steering a little bit each way and the drive off. Or at least that the way my fire house wants us to do when driving the 4x4 utilies. Try turning the steering wheel a little bit. Which turns the drive shaft. So any friction holding the driveshaft will stop. So its not in 4x4. I usally run in 4x4 when doing anywork. When driving around in 2x4 to reduce wear.

I was gonna say my 4610 clunks when engaging FWD but you beat me to it. It also has a very-so-lightly small clunk when I disengage it.

I notice a small 'clunk' on the front axles when disengaging on a 4310. It is more noticeable if the front
wheels are under some load (like holding on a slight incline)

 Disengaging 4WD on JD4310 HST

Just had a fabulous day on my tractor. Great weather, used the backhoe to level a new road down to my lower yard. There is no question that my tractor is stuck in 4WD. I left the switch in two wheel drive all day and my front tires were grinding away in the dirt. I will be calling the dealer this week. Better to be stuck in 4WD than 2WD I guess. I just don't want to lose use of my tractor. I have jobs to finish.

If you're so inclined you might crawl under the tractor and visually examine the wiring and connections just to make sure something didn't come loose. It seems to happen from time to time.

You know Ken, I would guess you might be right. Its probably something simple. I wonder if, when I was brush hogging, I caught a stick and something pulled apart. I was under the tractor to service it this winter. I didn't see anything obvious then. But I will take a look again tomorrow.
