Question about Garden

My mower just stopped going when I was cutting grass. It will not move in forward gears or reverse. I lifted the mower off of the ground and spun one of the back wheels and the wheels move in the opposite direction from one another. What could this be and how to fix it?

That is normal if it has a rear dif/gearbox, they are ment to turn in opposite directions. Does your machine have a leaver to disengage the drive for recovery purposes.? This may have knocked the machine out of drive.

    I can put it in all the gears but the mower will not move. It tries to move barely while in forward gear but just will not move.

If your belt is connected to a gearbox then you need to go inside the gearbox and see what is holding up forward motion I think it could possibly be a broken tooth on a gear or something inside gearbox stopping your forward motion. Shot in the dark maybe but it's worth a try if your handy. Good luck!

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.
