Question about Peg Perego John Deere Farm Tractor and Trailer

1 Answer

Will not go in forward only in reverse.

Put brand new battery in and had power. The tractor would go forward but would not shift into reverse. Took shifter assembly out of tractor floor and could press switch down and it would go into reverse. put shifter back in to floor and secured it and tried again. Nothing at all. I again removed and checked the wires making sure all were connected and not being pinched. Put back together and only reverse / What do I look for? Thanks

Check to make sure that the cables are not binding when mounted causing them to break connection

SOURCE: gator will only drive in reverse

I would replace the reverse switch as seen in here and also the high low switch for this peg perego gator.
Sometimes the high/low switch will cause it to not go in reverse, so I would replace both switches in the shifter just to make sure.
They are really easy to replace. You can call these guys
They know what they are talking about because they sell and repair them.

SOURCE: only goes in reverse after recent charging

I would replace the high/low switch and the reverse switch.
I had the same problem of it not going forward, but I just replaced the high/low switch. It turns out 1 month later I had to replace the reverse switch.
Here is the link to the site that I found my switches on.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: I just put together a Peg perego Polaris RZR ride

For this Peg Perego Razor model, some of them have a lever that slips over the foot pedal to keep it from going in reverse for safety reasons.
I would check the foot pedal and see if it has one.
Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: Hello, I purchased this Peg Perego Cub Cadet

yes, very common. probably the thermal breaker under the shifter. you can replace it with a 40 amp fuse or bypass it. dont worry its safe to bypass b/c there is a 30 amp fuse on the battery also.
good luck!

SOURCE: gator wont go

No, just the shifter. Just to check you can exchange the red and blue wires under the pedal(just for a second or so, do not do this permanently) to see if you get power to the wheels, if so then yes it is Definitely only the shifter, but I am still pretty sure it is just the shifter. you can also call Peg Perego Tech support which is excellent and they can help you too 1800-728-2108 and parts can be priced and found at

Why will my snapper riding mower not go into gear? forward or reverse?

does the drive pulley ( on the engine ) mesh with the driven wheel ??? the engine pulley has a specific height... this is the first test... also do not be afraid to stand this more on end... just take the battery out and shut the fuel off as well as the gas cap vent.

Why won't my riding lawnmower shift into reverse?

Some mowers will not allow you to shift into reverse with the blades engaged for safety reasons. Try disengaging the blades then shift into reverse.

My lawn mower model 425613x8a only drives in reverse what is my problem and how do I fix it?

I'am not to familiar,with this model number,of this tractor. But i do know that there is a safety switch,installed below the shift lever. Usually this switch,controls the neural,forward and reverse for your tractor. I suspect the forward motion contact is bad in the switch itself. You will have to remove the motion drive assembly and purchase a new switch,sometimes the safety switch is part of the whole assembly. You can find this assembly,under the shifting lever under the tractor,s floor. It could be on the right side or the left side depending on the location of the shifting lever.Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD 12/03/15

JD mighty mover tractor, 27MHz, 3 function remote 1. forward/reverse, 2. left & right, 3. loader bucket up/down Problem: no forward or reverse, front wheels turn left and right just fine, loader goes...

My son and I took apart the toy as we have the same problem with ours. The green terminal on the motor moves when we apply pressure to it and the motor speeds up considerably. It appears that a weak or bad terminal is the cause of loss of power. We are not sure how to maintain the pressure on this terminal.

We are going to put it back together and see if it works.

Tractor will not go in forward gear, only reverse.

Try rocking the mower forward and backward while you try to shift it.

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse

Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
