Gearbox before the bang

Hi all, I've a Volvo MD30 about 27 years old and still loving it. If I'm nice and gentle going forward or astern all if well. HOWEVER, if I'm pressed I hear a groan from the gearbox. Worrying won't cure the issue, so I ask what should I be looking out for, doing, avoiding etc. thanks in advance.
