Sounds to me like your hydrostatic control lever has became disengaged. If you had a fluid problem yuou would probably find fluid on the ground or within the tractor chasis somewhere. I,d check the linkages for your problem. Also make sure your parking brake is released.

Depending on which Craftsman riding mower you own, there are a number of problems that could cause the mower to no longer move:

  • Make sure the hydrogear bypass rod is fully engaged.
  • Jack the back up and see if either wheel free spins, one of the axle keys may have given out.
  • Inspect the traction belt that drives the transmission. If it's on all the pulleys and is not damaged, there may be a problem inside your transmission. That belt should be tight unless you have the clutch/brake pedal depressed. When you depress the pedal, it moves a pulley away from the traction belt making it loose so it does not drive the transmission. The traction belt runs from the engine pulley back to the transmission pulley. Usually through a series of idler pulleys. Sometimes this belt is hard to see because it is above the belt that drives the mower. It sounds like something is causing this belt to be loose. If not, the problem is probably inside the transmission. The belt could be broken, damaged, loose, or has come off a pulley. Also, the pulley that moves when pedal is depressed may be stiff and not returning to tighten belt.
  • Check the drive belt, and in particular the nylon/plastic idler pulley (near the transaxle) that tensions the belt. If the drive belt is an older belt, replace it. A stretched belt can cause the symptoms that you stated.
  • Make sure that all the springs connected to the pulleys are there and not broken.

There will not be any actual adjust in the unit, there will be some adjustment in the rods from the hand/foot lever, if you can see the arm moving freely on the unit when you work the foot/hand lever it is probably not a linkage problem, if there is an external brake disc, make sure the brake is not binding, finally somewhere on the unit will be a bypass lever for push mode, make sure this has not been engaged.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

If it's a hydrostatic, most likey you pulled the manual over-ride (only way to move the tractor manually). By leaving the over-ride level in the disengaged position, the tractor will start & run, but not move forwards or backwards. Correct by closing the the lever to it's closed (operational) position.
