LM300 not starting


Recommended Posts

We recently purchased a Land Master 300. The sellers did not have a manual. or even a title. It was advertised as a 2015 model. The ad was put up by one of the two owners. When we received the "Bill of sale" they provided, the other owner in filling it out, entered that it is a 2014. The only manual I have found online is a generic one for all of American Sportsworks UTVs. The lights will come on, using the key ignition the engine doesn't turn over.  There is no noise or indication that the motor is engaging. It will crank if you pull start it (with the choke on). Using the manual I downloaded online, I cannot find the spark plug, or the oil dip stick. Since it appears there is no "spark" when I turn it on, I conclude it must be the starter or the spark plug. Could the battery be down and the lights work, but it won't start? Does anyone have a manual for this LM300 with an accurate engine diagram? Is there any way to get a good manual or know for sure what year model we have? Can we get a new title in my name? Thanks for your help!

If it runs it is not the spark plug.    Sounds like a starter wire is loose or broke.

Check all the wiring and fuses. Trace the wires from the ignition (key switch) to the starter.  Be sure all the cables and wires are clean and tight.

Do a battery test.

Which engine does it have?  If you don't know engine brand post pictures of the engine. My 2010 Sportworks has the Subaru/Robins engine.

Let me know if I can help.

 Same buggy just a picture the day I got it. The man I got it from used it in his pecan orchard.  By the way, we used it yesterday where we hunt on my Granddaddy's farm and it did great. Hauled everything we needed and ran great in 98 degree weather. True enough that it rides stiff but hauled everything without a hitch. I'm sure if we were more inclined to race or pleasure ride I would look for something else but I'm thinking it will work out good for a hunting, hauling and work buggy. I also have a 1988 Dodge Dakota we use down there but the buggy works out a heap better. Just no a.c. on the buggy.

      Just got this kymco 450i Uxv from a guy, drove it around before I paid. Got home drove around town a little while the next day and it started squealing and amd didn’t want to go. Got to looking at the clutch, that’s were the noise is coming from, the primarily sounds like. Maybe a bearing in there cause the grinding noise and it only makes the noise when you go to move.

      Just received delivery of a 2024 AMP Pro.  Thought I'd start a thread with my impressions as I use it and learn more.  There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of real-world usage information out there on this model.  Hope this will help others as they research.
      Intended Use Cases
      Fire mitigation / slash removal from a 5 acre forested and well-gamble-oaked property.  The previous owners thought as much about fire mitigation as I do about fashion: not much. Snow removal Stump pulling General hauling (rock, lumber, etc.) Weimaraner energy depletion.  Wasn't an original use case, but a nice added bonus.  Experiences So Far
      Wasn't impressed that two of the bumpers on the underside of the bed where it sits upon the frame were missing.  The metal on metal contact has damaged the powder coating and the frame.  I expect a little better QC.
      I've only put a few hours on it, so not a ton to report on usage.  It isn't quiet; it's silent.  I can't even detect an electric note from the motor. I removed (and subsequently replaced) the motor cover noticed that the motor is German and made by Schambuller.  The motor controller is Italian and made by Dana TM4.  Given the operating specs of both I found on the web, I suspect both are higher quality than the previous Navitas (which is supposed to be decent).  The motor is rated at 25 hp and 71.5 lb-ft of torque.  It feels very powerful.  All the torque is delivered instantly, if desired.
      The bed is huge and has an electric dump as standard.  Great feature but would like it to go up a bit more.  Probably not feasible from an engineering perspective, but I want and I need ;).
      Power steering is nice, but vague.  Probably common to many UTVs, but I am accustomed to more direct results from input.  Plan early and plan often.
      In our first full day of usage, we hauled about 1/2 as much slash as the entire rest of the year when I was doing it by hand cart.  I may get fatter, but I'll also get more done.  After a few days of usage, the battery meter has gone down by 1/10th. 
      Until next time...

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?
