Question about Garden
Those have nylon gears in the transmission so what probably happened is you chewed the teeth of the gears. In most cases it is cheaper to push it then to replace the transmission

see if the lever going to the gearbox is cracked or broken. there is a gear inside the box that has a pin going thru the shaft that may have broken but usually it is external. these mowers have a plastic lever to put the transmission lever in gear if the cable is overtightened they wont hold up.if it cracks it leaves practially no tension on the engagment system

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck
