In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: Hydrostatic Transmission Failure

There is a transmission bypass lever on the back of the mower, if the bypass is moved out of the drive position, it will not drive in either direction, and will be really easy to push.

SOURCE: Husqvarna, GTH2454T Hydrostatic power loss.

If it's like mine the transmission is sealed and cannot be serviced. A local repair shop told me most likely the problem isn't with the transmission but rather the engine pulley is worn. He said if sand or debris gets between the belt and the pulley which has a definite "V" shape to it that it will wear down to a "U" shape. Now mine has a foot clutch on the left side so he had me pull back on the pedal which manually tightens the belt. I did this and it works like a champ. This winter I'll change the pulley.

Ahh a Craftsman, out of my league slightly as they are not brought in to the UK.

From what I gather these are a Sears product so it would have been delivered to you "Dry" .ie no oil or fuel etc. Have you checked the Hydrostatic Fluid level? What type of Oil did you put in there when you built the machine up? If you have used the wrong grade it would give these type of problems. Most Hydro units on lawn tractors (here in the UK anyway) often just run on Engine Oil not Transmission Oil but this should be stated in your instruction manuals for the machine

Dixon 5020 mowerhow do i install drive belt on 5020 dixon


If, and I'm sure it is, like all other riders, remove the deck, turn the mower up on it's side and supported with a lawn chair or the like, it won't hurt the mower, remove the electric deck drive unit from the crankshaft by taking the center bolt out and pull it off, remove the clutch tensioner far enough to get the belt off it, then remove the belt from the motor pully and the hydrostat drive pully and pull the belt out towards the front. replace the belt with new one and put it back together.

Brand new Troy-Bilt XP Horse, model 13bx79kt011 - Won't Move


Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

check the connecting rod to the tranny. follow the gear handle and you should find a rod connecting the handle to the axle make sure you're in neutral and adjust the rod until the handle starts to move

My cub cadet i1042 drive shaft won't engage ... The clutch or coupler is bad ???


hello reut... most of the cub cadets have a hydrostatic transmission. that said, keeping the transmission fluid full is key to good operation. Check the tranny fluid and add as much as you need to bring it to spot on full. joe

I have an early-2000s Troy Bilt Bronco, 42 inch deck, 18hp Briggs Inotek engine, hydrostatic drive. It broke or threw a drive belt (not for the mower deck, but a transmission belt). How to you go about...


While mowing the yard, the mower went dead. I tried to recrank it and it won't crank. The gas pedal goes straight to the floor and doesn't work to crank the mower. I do not know anything about mowers and don't know where the problem could be. Can someone help?

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.
