I just bought this machine used. I backed into mud turning around and rear tires started to spin. I shifted into 4x4 and the front didn’t move. I had to use winch to get out. Not sure 4x4 is engaging. How do you know if it’s working without putting it on jack stands? I saw other models required you to be rolling to engage?

Likely works the same as other.

How it operates is detailed in the Technical Manual in a section called "Theory of Operation" if it is similar to what I've seen in other TM I"ve referenced.

If yo plan on doing your own repairs, suggest you get a copy.

It's also important to note that within model #'s, they can work differently due to running changes over time. JD will reference SN breaks when this happens within the manual.

Good luck.
