SOURCE: RIDING LAWN MOWER STUCK IN GEAR

Have someone to rock you while you attempt to move gear shift. Hopefully it is only stuck between gears and will disengage. Your grease in gearbox may have become hard causing problems. If you wash the gearbox with water when hot (after mowing) You may have created moisture in gearbox causing major damage to transmission.

Check the bypass for the transmission, make sure it is in all the way, if it is, check the belt from the engine to the transmission, make sure the belt tension spring is riding on the belt and that the belt is tight.

Cub Cadet LTX1050 Has difficulty shifting between gears - could it really need a new transmission?


This can be a trans problem, but it can also be because you are not pushing the clutch/brake in far enough to ease shifting. bad clutch adjustment can also cause this as well.

Does the transmission otherwise work properly. (move freely in all the gears when it's in the gears without any grinding or bogging or burning smells? Does it stop properly when you push the clutch and engage properly when you release it. If so the transmission itself is probably okay but the shift mechanism where it shifts going into the transmission may need work. Most of these tractors all use the exact same transmissions (even different manufacturers often are using the exact same motors and transmissions as other brands. So Craftsman, MTD, Cub Cadet, even John Deere may all have a briggs and stratton engine and the exact same 5 speed manual transmission or hydrostatic transmission under them but then just have different looks and features up top. Sometimes the shift points on the common manual transmission get a little rusty inside the transmission. It's basically a small spring loaded ball that pushes from one rounded hole to the next and each hole is a spot where it holds the trans in whatever gear you set it at. This can get rusty and sticky and inhibit shifting. If you are not a big do-it-yourself person, then this is probably not an easy fix as it requires pulling the transmission and opening up part of it to lubricate/clean where the shift lever moves inside the trans or replace that particular mechanism.

However, one thing that you can do that may help SOME but only as a temporary thing is to shift it back and forth rapidly between forward and reverse while stopped (the motor doesn't need to be running even). This is kind of like swinging a rusty door back and forth to break down the rust. it's not a true fix per-say, but it can help loosen up those shift points enough to get you through a season or so if you just need to keep it going for a while till you can find a cheaper more honest repair person. . On the other hand, if it's really bad, it could break that ball loose and just make the tractor inoperable until you get that fixed. The parts for that are much cheaper than the actual transmission though.

Cannot engage the gears for RT tiller


I have spent time researching this as mine just did this. It seems you will need to take apart the gearbox and find the issue there, most say some part has bearings inside it that have no grease, and no way for grease to get in there...then it causes something else to break and get stuck.

Trying to decide whether I should try to fix it or take to service tech or ditch it all together.

Cannot shift into gear RT65


Hi I'm Peter. I realize this is an old post but I will answer it anyway for anyone that has the same question. I just finished rebuilding a Cub Cadet RT 65 Transmission. There are a couple of problems you may be facing. First the shifting shaft that goes down into the transmission is not sealed verywell so my understanding is that water from rain or washing the unit may run down into transmission. and may rust up some parts. You can try spraying penetrating oil and moving it back and forth and you may free it up. I am doubtful though but it's worth a try. The shaft has an arm with a little shaft on it that slides in the grove of a shifting yoke. The shift yoke is mounted on a shaft that has detent groves in it. The yoke has a stiff spring and ball in it that when you shift the transmission it slides up and down to the various groves of which each is either neutral or one of the drive or drive and tiller engagement positions. If your unit is like a few I've seen they have been packed with grease and the little ball and spring cannot get lubrication so they wind up freazing up makeing it near or impossible to move the yoke up and down which fits around the shaft of the primary shift gears that move up and down with the yoke. As they move up and down they will engage the transmission the the various modes of travel and operation. There are other problems also as several of the gears in the transmission have needle bearings so if your unit has only grease in it and not a type of gear oil the needle bearings have no way for the grease to get to them so they destroy themselves which may lead to a catistrphic failure which may include gear teeth being broken off and locking up the transmission. Needless to say the transmission case will have to be split and all new bearings installed plus replacing any other damaged gears, chains, , etc. You can order the bearings from multiple places Cub Cadet of course or you may do as I did and go to Mader bearing or what ever local bearing supply shop in your area and buy new ones. Remember take the old ones with you so they can match up the ones for your particular unit. I can tell you some of the parts/gears are used in most of the same size tillers of nearly all of the major brands. Yep Troybilt, Cub Cadet, Ryobi, Craftsman so there may be minor differences but I'm beginning to suspect as with a lot of appliances today that there is one company that builds them and sells them to the different Name Brands to put their logos on or either they just get their parts from the same place. LOL. There are a couple of videos on you tube that a fellow has taken his apart and filled it with grease. I haven't found it yet in my manuals but from all my years as a mechanic most transmissions have some type of gear oil in them and not grease hence the needle bearing getting destroyed.. I have read refeerences that say that the Cub Cadets at Tractor Supply come with oil in then then people have said they read to put grease in the transmissions when they get low on oil because a seal leakeed. What ever ! I say replace the seal and make the necessary changes if any need to be made so that you can run gear oil in them. The oil can reach the needle bearings and give them a longer life as the grease is unable to rech them. There are several sources I believe even Cub Cadet offers a free download of the Ownes Manual and a parts manual with a breakdown of the transmission including parts numbers.I replaced all the seals and bearings in mine for maybe $60 and a gear that is universal to all of the tillers for around $80. Prices can vary a lot so shop around. The same gear can be had from $ 79.99 - $ 129.00. They even all use the same parts number between the major brands. The drawing in the parts Manual is very confusing so to help everyone out I put a video on you tube Cub Cadet RT 65 Tiller where I have a cleaned transmission with all the gears in the case and I take the out, show you their positions, explain the operation of the transmission and then show how to assemble the gears in their proper place. I also explain and show the dentent shaft and shifting yoke operation. The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVgOPCRpc5o&t=1s Please like and subscribe so I can put some more videos up to help more people. Comments and questions are always welcome. Hope this helps Peter Cub Cadet RT 65 Tiller
