 HST - Is this normal?

My (new) tractor is a NH TC29D, but I'd like to hear comments from owners of any color tractor:1. Conditions: Engine off, HST neutral (foot off pedal), range-shift mid or high (NOT neutral), tractor on solid smooth concrete with slight slope down/front (the apron in front of my garage), brakes off. Given a little shove from behind, my tractor will proceed to gently roll down the slope. My only previous experience with HST is on my lawn tractor, which will not budge under similar conditions. Do I have a problem here?2. Conditions: Normal operation, pushing into large dirt pile with loader (i.e. up against immovable object), 4WD, range-shift low, Tractor will spin all wheels. OK so far. BUT range shift mid or high, will neither spin nor stall engine. I thought hydros were more positive. Do I have a problem here?...And yes, I have carefully checked fluid condition and fill level... it's clean and right on the "full" mark.Comments?

I'm not sure if it is normal but my JD4100 behaves as you have described. My JD318 would not budge either when it was in neutral but it did not have a range selector.

I've noticed a few references/comparisons to hydro lawn mowers. Assuming they are all somewhat similiar, our 12hp AC is also rock solid until you depress the release switch on top of the transmission housing. The manual even states to press this switch before attempting to move the unit. I haven't noticed this on our 4100, or am I just overlooking things.

After thinking about this neutral issue I have decided it is probably planned and a good thing. On a lawn tractor you do not (and probably can not) pick up 500+ lb. implements with a 3 pt. hitch. On a compact tractor you often connect to heavy implements with the 3 pt. hitch. Since the likelyhood of moving the heavy implement is slim it may be better to move the tractor into position with ease. I also suspect that some engineers were far sighted enough to believe that you are capable of setting a park brake and would like the freedom to make minor positional adjustments with little effort. Just my 2 cents worth, I have been wrong before and will most likely be again.
