 L2900 GST Problem

I recently purchased a mid 90's L2900 GST with 560 hours. The tractor is in pretty good shape overall but I have an issue with the glide shift. Only gears 1-4 work and it appears that I'm stuck in high range. In other words, speeds 1-4 are actually 5-8. Probably a related problem, but I cannot shuttle shift from neutral to forward or reverse without clutching.

Any thoughts or suggestions before I turn this one over to the dealer for repair?

Thanks in advance, Gordon

 L2900 GST Problem

Doesn't the GlideShift use electrics? If so, I'd check the fuses and wiring.

 L2900 GST Problem

I know the new Grand L's have an electronically controlled GST but to the best of my knowledge on older tractors like mine the GST's have no electronics. I have the service manual and it doesn't say anything about electric control of the GST.

Thanks for the reply, Gordon

When you shift from forward to reverse with out the clutch what happens? It is manual with no electronics.

 L2900 GST Problem

If I'm in gear the shuttle shifter will shift from forward or reverse into neutral but unless I clutch I can't push the lever back into forward or reverse. When I'm in neutral on the glide shift control I can shuttle shift into forward or reverse, then engage a gear with the glide shift without using the clutch.

My big problem is that I'm still in high range on gears 1-4 and when I shift into gear 5 or higher the transmission disengages

Thanks, Gordon

It could be as simple as the cable needing adjustment to start but I think it is more like a combination of things from the sound of it.
