Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Construction Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Piece works in hi range nothing in lo no grinding no noise acts like its in neutral

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have looked at hi lo solenoid visually confirmed it moving

Start by checking your oil level and condition. Look for dark and discoloration in the oil as well as for any signs of water intrusion such as milkiness. If that checks out okay, look inside your transmission filter as well as the suction screen at the bottom of the transmission for any signs of metal or debris that would confirm an internal mechanical failure occurring that would require further disassembly and inspection for overhaul or repair. If clean, I recommend you having your transmission pressures tested and confirmed whether or not they are within factory specifications. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
