Hi, check the main drive belt, the belt is stretched out. you need too replace the main drive belt.

If this doesn’t work for you, please write back. Thanks,

SOURCE: shuts down in reverse

I'm not familiar with that particular mower but I'd bet it is a direct switch. Follow the shifter arm down and you should see a arm or button that arm contacts a switch when you put it in reverse. pull the two wires off that switch, put a wire in between to connect them and it is by-passed.

Please rate if this helps-

SOURCE: Loss on drive on Poulan Lawn Tractor

Check to make sure the belt is not broken or did not come off the transaxle pulley, you can check by removing battery from under seat and pulling battery box out to examine top of transaxle,Pay close attention to the wire belt guide on the rh side of the transaxle pulley it should be close to the backside of the belt after it is reinstalled.If you recently may have removed the rear tire make sure the square key on the axle didn't drop out.Is the tractor a hydrostat drive? If so make sure brake is not stuck on,if it was it would make a grinding noise.

SOURCE: husqvarna tractor won't go in

if you scroll through many of these posts, you will find that husqvarna make most frequently has a failed transmission. you have to replace the transmission and they are not cheap. if you can find the company which made the tranny, and the model, you can search for "new old stock" transmissions for sale cheap on eBay. the company name will be on the bottom or the top of the transmission. this being a "jelly side down " world you most likely will end up having to remove the transmission to see the top of it. there are only a handful of companies making them.

those mowers are actually made by MTD or AYP. not really a husqvarna product.

Gt 245 lawn tractor won't go forward or backward


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.

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
