Mower won't move in forward or reverse, it just makes a loud wining noise. I've had this happen before but I usually can get it moving.


If this is a hydrostatic drive. Check oil level in transmission. If you have been running it low on oil, it may be too late for the hydrostatic drive unit. If it has a drain plug, drain it and change the oil.

Husquvarna hydrostatic mower won't move


Sounds like the belt going to the hydrostate broke. Or a key on one of the pulleys broke. The belt runs inside of the frame and is hard to see.

Wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??


Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

Lawnmower will not move in gear with motor running


Hi
Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.
