4720 won't move forward or reverse, pto won't engage

While mowing recently, I stopped and when I tried to back up, the tractor would not reverse. Now it won't go forward. Tractor still cranks and runs great - pto will engage and front end loader will work. Just won't go forward or backwards.

Check the drive belts first. and make sure the hydro release lever is in the correct position. If it is not- you can push the lawn tractor and have the rear wheels turn. It sometimes doubles as a "Forward" "Neutral" "Reverse" lever on other brands of lawn tractor.

The belts should be in their guides and pulley grooves- check to make sure it does not have a hidden break by having the engine off, and pulling on the belt.

Lastly, check to make sure the hydro itself is not out of oil or low on oil. It uses low viscosity "HyGard" oil. Capacity if you drain the old oil out and refill is 4.6 quarts. Look for a leak if the level is low.

If it still does not move, make sure the levers are set so you are in forward motion positions, and push- if the rear wheels move there is a problem in the hydro unit.

X595 john deere pto wont kick in


These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

My blade or pto will not engage after i go in reverse and start forward again.how do i fix this please help me ive tried everything i know.


Many machines have a micro switch on the shift lever, it is to stop you mowing in reverse, maybe this switch is sticking, some machines have a position on the ignition switch to turn this function off.

When backing up the mower blades shut down and won't come back on when I try to go forward again.


on most riding lawn tractors you most first disengage the blades before going into reverse moving the tractor stop, put the tractor in a forward gear then re-engage the blades. if this dose not help please contact me. Thank you

Have a John Deere tractor LA145 Yesterday while mowing the mower blade suddenly stopped working. Turned on and off several times with no luck All pulleys and belts seem to be intact. There was nothing...


Either you need a seat switch or the reverse switch has failed.If the deck will engage while you are pushing down the forward pedal then the rio or reverse switch is not working or it's out of adjustment.If you can not get the deck to engage at all then the problem is likely the seat switch.
