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: Craftsman 19hp won't move when in gear

There is a square key about 2 " long that fits in the slot on the axle and wheel and locks them together.. You probably didn't see it when putting tire back on and knocked it out. If you go back where you removed tire, you'll find it laying on the ground.

SOURCE: Rider won't move Hydrostatic

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

SOURCE: lt1000 hydrostatic drive stuck - will not engauge or disengauge

Does the tractor try to move or **** in any direction, if so you may want to check to see if the disk that controls the brakes is stuck, I've seen this many times.

Craftsman lawn tractor 917.258.911 will not pull


I have a 917.273482 model but perhaps this will help. My tractor wouldn't move under engine power, and the wheels were locked, too (could not even push it). The probelm was that the brake has a linkage into the hydrostatic drive transmission, so that when the brake is applied, no engine force will be applied to the wheels. A spring releases (returns)this linkage when you take your foot off the brake. In my case the linkage was stuck. A copious amount of WD-40 into and around the opening that the linkage goes through into the transmission case made everything work fine once again. Hope you problem is as easy to fix as this.

Mowing right along and suddenly the tractor won't go move


it's 1 of 5 likely things
The drive belt from the engine to the transaxle is totally slipping or broken
The linkage from the control pedal to the transaxle is faulty.
The transaxle is broken (not user fixable)
The by-pass rod is pulled out
The brake pedal is pushed or the linkage is stuck in the "brake" position.

HELPING A FRIEND WITH A CRFTSMN 18HP FRNT ENGINE LT2000 LAWN TRACTOR. THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT BUT WHEN HE RELEASES THE CLUTCH/BRAKE TO GO FORWARD OR REVERSE THE ENGINE DIES.


Put trans in neutral if trans is a gear drive and see if mower can be pushed, if it can you can push rule out stuck brake. If you have a hydrostatic trans you can put trans in bypass and push to see if brake is stuck. Remove drive belt at engine or at trans and try the cluch, if motor stays running there is a trans problem.

Not sure, but i think the electronic clutch is not engaging when i push the control levers forward or backwards. the engine and the mower deck both run, but the mower will not move


The electric clutch is to power the blades/mower deck. There is a belt that drives the hydrostatic pumps to power the wheels. Make sure the Parking brake is OFF. Could be a belt, spring, idler pulley.

Rear wheels will not turn. Worked fine when stored for the winter


Craftsman-Husky...same tractors-built in the same factory. I also had a problem with the hydrostatic transmission not providing power to the rear wheels. Here's what Sears told me:
(1) Check to make sure the drive belt is tight both under the engine-and the tranny.
(2) Air can get into the hydrostatic transmissions-especially during shipping (new mower) and storage.
So.....
Pull your freewheel pin out to disengage the tranny-then push the mower both forward and then backwards for 50' or so. Then push the freewheel pin back in and start the mower. If the transmission then works-drive forward-then backward-then forward repeating the cycle about 4 times. Drive about 50' in each direction. This should purge the air from the treansmission.
