Obviously you would not want to do this if the rears are already slipping and not moving in sync with the fronts.

I got a pdf operators manual off the internet, but also the hard copy upon delivery.
I mark up the PDF with notes, check off maintenance, filter location, etc...

May be irrelevant to your tractor, but on mine sometimes driving straight it will go in or out easy, sometimes turning the wheel (seems like turning left is easier but don’t see why that matters), and some times acellerating with foot throttle hard then pushing in clutch and shifting on decel makes it smooth. I know totally different machine and mine is gear drive, just my experience.

Had occasion to run the L3560 yesterday and it had been in 4wd for weeks. To get it out after going forward and finding the lever difficult to move, I backed up a smidge and it shifted right away easy.

I had so many problems with my Case 55C front end I'm almost paranoid about using FWD on this tractor. Only been using on hills or when needed and then right back to 2WD.

The life of this tractor is largely carrying bucket loads of manure out to a compost pile which is down in a low spot, need I say more?
