I have a ten year old John Deere 4700 tractor (2001) hydrostatic transmission.
In 4WD the front wheels are powered but not the back wheels.
In 2WD I get neither front nor rear turning.
I get the same results in A, B and C ranges.
All the other hydraulics seem to be working fine (loader, backhoe).
I had gotten low on hydrostatic transmission fluid and I have refilled it. (I always using official JD fluid.)

Observing the various levers under the tractor which control it as my son shifts them I don't see anything obviously wrong. Everything sounds normal.

Any ideas on what might be the problem and what to do to fix it?

Many thanks,

Sugar Mountain Farm

Is the front shaft driven or hydraulic. Sounds like the rear may be blown
