Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Honda HRR2165VXA mower that is having issues with the smart drive.

If I lift the rear wheels, they will spin when I press teh smart drive. As soon as I set them on the ground, they stop. I've cleaned the area around the pullys and replaced the belt with no luck. Any suggestions?

Self propell not working right


Leave aside all the puffery about 3-1 and such, you described a front wheel drive (pull) walk-behind (FWD), but are asking why the rear wheels won't propel. When you push down the hand grip the front wheels should spin free. Whan you lower from wheels by releasing pressure on hand grips, turning wheels lowered to ground should propel the mower along with its unpowered rear wheels now turning be ground contact. Reminder, never, ever lift rear drive wheels of any mower off the ground while walking behind with engine running:
  1. You could be struck by blade propelled object.
  2. You could pull mower and spinning blade backward onto your feet.
  3. You could lose balance and be pulled forward in a fall.
Contemporary FWD mowers are recognized by a black chain housing on deck top leading from engine to left front of deck. RWD propelling chains are situated underneath deck so cannot be seen from above.

Hi.! I bought a Honda cr-v model 2003 and did not have manual book,how cal i tell if its two wheel drive or front wheel drive.is there an indication where can i look? Thanks..


Depends on the model, if it is all wheel drive it should have AWD on the back window.
The Honda CRV uses very smart technology to have AWD. Let me explain it simply. The CRV is essentially a front wheel drive car, but there are sensors mounted on all the tires that sense slipping. If the computer determines the wheel is spinning faster than the other ones, it uses hydraulics to engage the rear end differential and presto..All Wheel Drive. You do nothing, no switches, no levers, the computer does it all for you. If it is indeed AWD, you can look under the car to see if you have a driveshaft going into the rear differential (axle)

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Broken rear axle on my Honda hydrostatic drive push mower


The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.

You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.

If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.

If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.

Good luck and be careful!

Rear wheel drive does not push mower when engaged. But, when mower rear wheels are lifted off the ground, they turn weakly.


remove the rear wheels and check the gears in the wheels- they are plastic and part of the circumfrance on the inside of the wheel. If worn replace wheels.
also check belt- it should be tight with very little play when drive is engaged ( obvioulsy check this with engine off).

Craftsman runs but will not move?/?


There is a long belt that connects to the pulley on the motor shaft (there are 2 belts there. The lower one is for the mower deck) and at the other end is connected to the pulley on the transmission. Is the belt in place? There is also a pulley on a spring loaded lever that keeps tension on your drive belt. If you move it away from the belt it should spin freely. Does it? If not, replace. If you lift both rear wheels off the ground at the same time, spinning one should cause the other to spin in the opposite direction. Both wheels should feel like they are controlled by the transmission and not just spinning freely. If not, check to see if the woodruff key on the axle that prevents the wheels from spinning freely has broken on one or both wheels. If all of this looks ok and the drive release bolt is positioned correctly, you very well might have a bad transmission.

Rear scraping sound, Also when placed on lift and in gear (all wheel drive) the rear left wheel does not spin


Take it in for proper diagnosis - that's not supposed to happen in an 'ALL WHEEL DRIVE' - all WHEELS ARE SUPPOSED TO TURN.
