The hand clutch allows the operator to continue PTO operations while stopping the forward (or reverse) motion of the tractor. It does this by placing a clutch in the drive train aft of the main clutch that cuts power to the drive train when disengaged, but does not impact the PTO operation.

For the purpose of diagnosing your issue the hand clutch should be placed, and left in the engaged (forward) position.

I don't understand your description of the tractor "trying" to move. That suggests a clutch or clutch pack attempting to engage. Which would be consistent irrespective of which range (Hi Low or Direct) is used. If the shifting forks were out of adjustment or broken, you would hear grinding or nothing. The tractor wouldn't attempt to move because the gears are either engaged or not engaged.

Maybe there is a misunderstanding of the system, so at the risk of sounding over simplified, place and leave the hand clutch engaged in the forward position. Depress the foot clutch and place the range selector (right side of the torque tube) in Hi, Direct or Lo. Then select your gear with the main shifter (on top of the torque tube). Engage the main (foot) clutch by releasing it.

If that doesn't clear up the issue, you'll need to provide a more detailed description of whats happening when the tractor "attempts" to move but stops after moving a few feet when in Direct or Low.
