Low range issue

I have a 2015 prowler 500 hdx that I bought used as is. It has 580 miles on it. I got it cheap because of an issue it has with the low range. It shifts through all gears very smooth but when it's in low and you hit the gas to engage it , it grinds like the gear is stripped or something. It drives fine in high and reverse.Any ideas on what it could be and what it will take to fix it and if it will still be ok to drive as long as I don't use low?

sounds as if the shifting cable re-adjustment needs to be done

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

I agree with Gary. Disconnect the cable and shift it to low by hand to fully engage low and see if it still grinds. If it still does it, check your oil for any metal content to see if you have an internal issue.
