Most front ends for riding lawn mowers, need to be greased. In addition to this, most of the rims for the front tires, have a nipple for a grease gun, which also need to be lubricated.

Have a craftsman DYS4500 with a front mount snowblower only one rear wheel on right side will turn on ice with chains on both rear wheels you cant move machine just spins on right


yes this is correct that is called a " differential" it allows you to turn in circles without one wheel dragging in grass, larger 4wd drive tractors have what is called a "diff Lock" that can be engauged this pins both tires on same axle together and keeps them both turning in low traction surfaces,

im unaware of any craftsman that is made with a "diff LOck"

My riding mower front tires are hard to turn cause they want to point in different directions and not straight. what could cause this


1) The tie rod between the front wheels is bent or the adjuster nut has come loose.
2) The plastic wheel bearings have gone to sh*t on either or both sides
3) The steering knuckles were never greased and their bushings are shot to sh*t.
4) The front tires have come off the rims
5) The front axle beam has been bent

Find a small engine repair shop in the yellow pages and have a person with know how put his eyes and hands on it, you will know within a few minutes what is wrong.

Craftsman Lawn tractor - When turning to the left the Left front wheel turns much farther then the right front wheel does on a hard right turn. Almost perpendicular to the tractor. Busings are brand new....


I've noticed this on other Craftsman and MTD mowers. The ones with the one main steering rod from the steering wheel to the left wheel and a connecting rod from the left wheel to the right wheel. I think that since we are advised to mow in a counter-clockwise direction, they design the mowers to turn tighter towards the left. It's in the design just like you suspected.

The steering wheel turns but the wheels are not


Inspect your steering for any linkage that has come loose. Check it from steering wheel to the front wheels. Repair any thing that is loose or just hanging.

Good luck.
Let me know if this helps.

Steering


Look under the front between the wheels at the tie rod that connects the two wheels. It is probably bent up and should be straight. If it's bent, remove it a straighten it.
