    Default Lost Reverse on HST

    This past snow storm I lost reverse on my L48. Response between forward and reverse had been getting slower recently then all of a sudden, no reverse. Machine has almost 2,000 hours and fluids/filters have been changed recently. Linkages are all OK. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    No, unfortunately I don't, but I am heading to my dealer for some chainsaw chains later today or tomorrow and I will ask him.

    Unfortunately I have never heard of this problem. But this will bump back to the top, perhaps a more experienced member will answer in.

    Curtis, since you just changed the fluids recently I would double check to make sure you topped off the fluid. You might be low there! Please let us know how you make out. Stanley

    Brought the L48 to the dealer, their first thought was a relief valve. There is one for each direction and since forward works, they are thinking the valve or o ring failed. Hopefully this is the problem as they don't have to break the machine apart to fix. I will keep everyone updated as to the final outcome. Got a price on a M7040........want cab tractor BAD! $47,200.......which puts it close to a M59 which would be more usefull to me, but no cab.

    Follow Up:

    Dealer says $4,800 to split machine and over $4,000 in parts. I started another thread to explain the details.

    Thanks everyone!
