Check your drive belt that it has not slipped off the drive cog under the motor. Also check the alignment of the motor with the handle on the right side (speed, reverse, and neutral lever).. This lever tilts the engine to engage the drive belt.. there is no transmission in this machine.. just how the belt engages by its angle when you push the lever forward and backward.. If the engine is running, it must be either the belt to drive the unit or the angle has been messed up somehow..

My Weedeater riding lawn mower will not move in forward or reverse after it has started


Check your drive belt that it has not slipped off.. also check your drive lever on the right side (speeds, neutral, and reverse). The mower uses this lever to angle the motor against the belt to move it..

It is most likely the belt or the angle misaligned if the engine is turning...

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.

2 things, one, the belt jumped track, broke, or melted in place, 2, the hydrostatic ****** is out of oil, you didn't say if it was hydro or not. I doubt that the gear box has gone bad, but I would put more blame on a belt or pulley. Check it out. Hope this helps.

There should be a pulley that the brake/clutch petal pulls against to disengage. You could have a problem with that. You will have to turn it by hand to check and see. Check the main drive belt while you are in the area. It may be helpful to remove the deck so you can slide up under there get a good look.

I hope this gets you going.

Hi. I have an Alko T18-102HD ride on lawn mower that is starting to go very slow in reverse and forward. It gets to the point of slowing to a stop when reversing up a slope. I fitted a new drive belt...


I had the same problem with my Alko going slow in forward and reverse. Believe it or not the problem is caused by a build up of grass cuttings around the hydro clutch mechanism. If you follow the mechanism from the foot pedal you will probably find the actuator is being prevented from engaging by a build up of old grass. Clean it out and you should find it restores normal operation. This has happened to me a few times so now I blow out the grass on a regular basis with an air compressor which stops me having any problems. It also stops a hefty bill from the service dealer :-)

Cub cadet starts but won't move forward or reverse ? what should i try to do?


What model? I have a 1554, that I just took to the dealer, for repairs, for the same thing. The motor starts, the blades engage and cut, it just stopped moving forward, or reverse. If I remember, I'll get back on here and let you know, unless you already know?

If the belt comes off a riding lawn mower...will it still cut grass


Probably not.

I would expect to find two belts on a riding mower; one to drive the riding lawn mower (lets call this the DRIVER) and one to drive the actual mower part (lets call this the MOWER).

To answer your question one way, if the driver belt is off, it will still cut grass, but you cant move the mower. If the mower belt is off, it will move but not cut the grass.

If your belt is broken, take it to an automotive parts store or garden equipment place for replacement. You might also support a FixYa.com advertiser.

I hope this answers your question. Thanks for posting at FixYa.com and please vote.

thanks
