Is it a hydrostatic drive and did you pull the pin that is located by the hitch. The pin should be pushed in in order to engage hydrostatic drive.

My 12 year old pouan riding mower model 287707 when foot brake is pressed mower wont stop


If you look around the rear axle you should see a half moon shape shoe that is the brake and there should be a rod coming off of that to adjust the brake.

I have a Craftsman mower 917.280810.It barely moves when clutch is released,even on flat ground.I changed the belt-no help.The transaxle pulley is engaged,and when I put my hand on the tire,the tire stops...


I don't quite get you, if the belt is running but the rear axle is not turning then your transmission is shot. If the belt is running and the rear axle is spinning with no forward or backward motion, then someone took the back wheels off and put them back on without installing the keyways.

Problem shifting


If the shifting is easy when the engine is off you have an adjustment to make on the clutching mechanism. if you loosen the belt (the adjustment is under the mower) it should improve the shifting but do not loosen it too much to where the belt begins to slip when in drive.

How do you adjust brakes on a 30 inch murray,model 30550A lawn tractor.


Sit on mower find the right rear wheel,put your mowers deck in the lowest position.
look under the mower between the rear of the deck and right rear wheel you will see the transmission and a small disc (looks like a small brake rotor) there is a nut on the outside of that disc and or close to that disc 9/16 or 1/2 inch standard wrench size,turning that nut clockwise tightens the brakes ccw loosens.

My mower brakes do not work


The adjuster is on the right side just in front of the rear wheel. its the clutch rod / brake rod . you will see a spring on the shaft with two nuts one used to lock the adjustment. loosen the nuts and turn the nuts so the nuts go towards the back of the tractor. keep checking the peddle for brake .

Craftsman 20HP , can't stop freewheeling,


Sounds like your problem is the key in your rear wheel is missing or sheared, you have to remove the wheel @ tire assembly ,pull rubber cap off then clip to remove if one of the keys is sheared or gone it will go into gear and the brake will work ,but they will only stop the shaft without the key it will not move or brake becuase its not attached if you know what I mean.

Clutch/Brake Pedal Problem


first off your biggest problem is its built by MTD.they build about 90% of the riding lawn mowers you see in the stores that are 20 horse and under,every thing from a yard machine to a craftsman to a cub cadet. you need to get under it and fallow the linkage from your pedal to your rear transaxle. that link is adjustable if it is not , then the arm it attaches to is .you need to adjust it whichever way takes slack out of the belt, if all the adjustment is out then replace the belt and adjust it accordingly

Frozen won't budge


On lawn tractors, usually on the right rear wheel, there is a brake for the transmission, if the brake seizes up, the mower will not move...the size nut on the brake adjust is 1/2 inch, all it takes is about 1/2 turn on the nut and the brake should release the disk
