OK, With out looking at your manual, which way do you pull or push your handle to engage 4 wd. Is down towards the ground engaging it or is pulling UP engaging it? Since my tractor does not let me know with an idiot light when it is engaged I had to guess till I looked it up?
Do you know, with out looking it up? The sticker next to it is useless

On the 'Botas we run, you push (step?) on the handle to get 2wd and pull up for 4wd.

There's no light on ours either, but when your sliding around on the ice & snow there isn't a lot of mystery in it either. Laughing out loud.

Best of luck.

Down is 4X4 on my Cadet, with no idiot light either. The diagram on the sticker next to it shows which is which if you can drive and read upside-down simultaneously!

On the JD you have to stop and think about what the switch icons are trying to convey. The switches are engraved with home grown international language-barrier-free icons that are politically correct by being universally indecipherable.

My NH TC45 is UP to engage FWD.

On the TC29 it is easy to remember: Push the lever toward the front wheels is 4wd; pull it back toward the back wheels is 2wd. After 600 hours on it, I don't even have to glance at the lever anymore.

Not sure about your TC40, though.

Good luck,
Bill

On the gear drives like Brokens you pull up. On hydros you push forward.

Well, I felt like a totall idiot a few weeks ago when I did not know which way was engaged. I was trying to pop the clutch in loose stuff to try and see. Finally I had to look it up and that even took me an hour to find! I am trying to figure out a way to remember it but it may be best for the tractor if I just mark it on the sticker with a perminant marker. This way here if any of my hunting buddies is running the tractor for me it will be self explanatory.

Laughing out loud Yes it is politically correct, no one can figure it out by the markings! I Like that, good one!

Just crank the steering to the stop and gun it, when the buggy starts dancing, you know where 4wd is Smile I love how the Bota can fly in and out of 4WD, makes tight turning while manuvering with a load easier on soft soil.
