2015 American Landmaster LM500 Stuck in gear

Recommended Posts

Good Morning Folks..Happy New Year, I have been having some intermittent issues with my 2015 American Landmaster LM500 not going into neutral. Seems if I shut the engine off it would pop into neutral. Yesterday I was splitting firewood with a 500 pound log splitter that I pushed to my wood area up a slight grade. I was not able to get it into neutral which I assumed was due to the pressure of the weight of the splitter pushing back. after I finished splitting wood, I used the weight of the splitter to roll back down the hill to my driveway. I unhooked the splitter but still could not get it to go into neutral or start. I dragged it back into my barn with my mower as I don't leave anything outside over night. I am at a loss what to check to try to fix this. I use my UTV (Eustas) every day that I am at my place where I keep it and will be lost without it. Thoughts?

Well folks I am not sure what I actually did, but I unplugged a few things and adjusted the one cable at the gear selector...I noticed a click sound when I turned the key...for grins a nd giggles I put the battery charger on the battery and the started started clicking...I removed the cables and cleaned everything up and with the charger on the started would spin...I removed the battery from my tow behind trail cutter and installed it in the UTV,,and HE IS ALIVE!..dont know what happened to the battery since I started him up yesterday afternoon and he started right up as usual...stranger things have happened....Happy New Year!

Glad to hear that you have it all sorted out. I was going to suggest checking the transmission oil. If it has any, some do, and some don't. That's always a good place to start. But a cable adjustment would make sense too.

  My Bulldog has a neutral safety switch that can get a little finicky. You might have inadvertently adjusted it. Either way, glad you got it going.

      I bought a used RTV 900 and was told it is a 2012. I thought I would verify that. I can't find anywhere I can look this up.
       
      KRTV900A61057114 is the product identification number.
       
      Thanks for any help.

      Hi friends, I have a new utv Hisun 700. My problem is idle adjustment.  How is idle adjustment done? While my engine is idling 2500- 2700 rpm. I need idling adjustment 1500 rpm. Where I am, there is no master who understands this tool. How do you do the idle setting? Can you help me? Hello everyone. Thank you.

      I am having shifter problems.  The gears are grinding and now it will not go into neutral.  Is it easier to adjust the cables from under the hood or under the bed?  Both are difficult to reach for an old woman.

      I have a land master  LM 400. Starts up just fine and idles fine but as soon as I run it for a little bit it seems to start sputtering so I pulled a choke out and it runs fine for a couple seconds and then I push the choke back in and it just shuts off. Any suggestions as to why?

      Has anyone ever installed a exhaust silencer on there Landmaster? I recently retired from the military and having a lot more time to deer hunt and want something to quite my utv’s exhaust so it’s not so loud going up the mountain. Thanks!
