Is it a hydrostatic drive and did you pull the pin that is located by the hitch. The pin should be pushed in in order to engage hydrostatic drive.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the deck level on a Husqvarna

Not sure if you are looking for the nuts and knobs or how to level? Most newer decks have knobs for adjuctments. I park my mower on a concrete level surface make sure all tires are at the correct psi then with tape measure check front left and right at bottom of deck for same measurment. You can also put a 2 ft level on the deck and adjust.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.

Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

I have a hu700f Husqvarna push mower the drive wheels will spin if elevated, but they won't pull the mower at all. I tried replacing the belt, but that didnt help.

was the belt tight when you fitted new one? if so then you have a gearbox fault. it could be something minor such as the roll pin shearing off that goes through the gearbox pulley (that the belt turns) so the belt spins the pulley but not the gearbox shaft. But in my experience its usually the friction plates and needle rollers that wear out inside the gearbox and i dont hink you can but individual parts to repair the gearbox internals.So it could be an expensive complete gearbox needed.One thing you can try is making the cable that engages the drive as tight as possible on the adjuster and see if that works,if it does it might not last that long as it means the internals are nearly worn out. But check the belt,check the gearbox pulley and check the drive gears on the output shafts ( take the driving wheels off ) and make sure the gears are not full of mud and old grease.

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards

Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.

Honda lawn mower wheel drive works, but needs adjustment, how?

Take the covers off the drive,there should be a hollow bolt the cable comes thru, it should have 2 adjustment nuts This lengthens or shorts the cable. There also may be a adjustment on the handle.

Self Propell quit working

It might be that a cable adjustment is needed to pull the drive wheel/gear into contact with the driven wheel/gear.

How do I adjust the tracking on a Husqvarna model Z5426?

Check the front wheels. I have the same problem and one of the wheels is locked which keeps the mower pulled in that direction. I am trying to figure out how to get the wheel loose.
