 Traction lock

had to use it when digging my garden out. When one wheel would spin I stopped and would engage it then carry on. But somtimes I forgot to let off the lever to disengage it and would make a turn on my lawn. The inside wheel would rip the lawn up. A newbe mistake. I dont think this hurt the tractor because I was on the lawn I'm sure if I made this mistake on cement this would be a different story

Sometimes under the right conditions they will not release until the pressure goes down or is released.

 Traction lock

It's very much like driving with a locker on a 4x4. Without an operating differential, it will throw you to the oustisde of a turn. That will certainly dig up your lawn. I noticed the same this afternoon while lifting and moving a log - trying to pivot the log, which was on my right, I actually noticed that I was pulling it to the left while I had the diff lock engaged.

Also, on many subcompacts, the axles are spinning at very differnet RPMs, so locking them together will make the front wheels spin faster, doing even more damage. Thi was common in some old japanese 4x4s, and caused significant axle wrap (the leaves of the suspension would warp into an S shape).

Don't use it on the lawn!

Let me see if I have this straight. When you make a turn without the traction lock engaged you’re inside wheel turns slower then you’re outside wheel right? But when you have your traction lock engaged you’re inside wheel turns at the same speed as you’re outside wheel. If this is true this would explain why my inside wheel was tearing up the grass as the wheel is spinning at the same speed as the outside wheel??

Traction lock is only supposed to be used when you are going straight never in a turn because it locks the differential and does not allow the wheels to rotate at different rates as a normal differnetial does.

Trying to turn with diff lock on can do damage to the tractor and will definitely rip up your lawn.

If you were in 4WD that alone will rip up your lawn in a turn, so it is possible your diff lock was in fact released. The diff lock pedal on my B7610 is a press and hold to engage let go to release design, I assume yours is the same.

The problem I had is when I engaged it then made a turn out of the dirt onto the lawn it did not disengage right away(the pedal did not pop out). Then I went backwards and it disengaged right away.

So can you now engage it going straight and release it going straight?

As you may have heard, this problem of tearing up the grass in fairly common among many sub-compact tractors. Just as if you try to turn a tight corner with a 4 wheeler with a straight axle, your grass shows your mistake, I used my neighbors JD 2210 with a loader hauling rocks, it also likes to eat the grass.

"Also, on many subcompacts, the axles are spinning at very differnet RPMs, so locking them together will make the front wheels spin faster, doing even more damage."

The above statement is not correct.

The 'traction lock' ONLY locks the rear axle solid, it does NOT lock the front axle solid, nor does it change the gear ratio between the front and rear axles.

Best of luck.
