    My model 600 MTD lawn tractor does the same thing. I replaced both drive belts and the problem still exhists. I cannot shift from fwd to reverse unless I really force the shift lever. Sometimes I have to shut off the engine to shift it.

    If you remove the plate that is under the shifter, is there a stack pulley on the left side of the mower?

Check to make sure the belt is not broken or did not come off the transaxle pulley, you can check by removing battery from under seat and pulling battery box out to examine top of transaxle,Pay close attention to the wire belt guide on the rh side of the transaxle pulley it should be close to the backside of the belt after it is reinstalled.If you recently may have removed the rear tire make sure the square key on the axle didn't drop out.Is the tractor a hydrostat drive? If so make sure brake is not stuck on,if it was it would make a grinding noise.

SOURCE: Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

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!

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.

Knocking sound engine


Sounds like the transmission is having an issue. Put on some hearing protectors and while someone is on the tractor, THAT YOU TRUST AND ISN"T AN IDIOT OR DRUNK, hold the brake and shift into forward and reverse while you listen to where the sound is coming from exactly. Then, have them run through the controls so you can see what's happening and possibly what isn't happening correctly.

I have an MTD mower tha tis ver jerky in forward, reverse is fine. What could it be? The trans is about 2 years old. I thisnk it could be the clutch plate or the differentital, however, reverse works fine...


Assuming that the model you have is a single speed transmission with variable speed belt system and that the mower has never been used to tow anything heavier than a dump cart. 9 times out of 10 its usually the forward gear shift key not allowing it to go all the way into forward gear. Might be able to ajd the shift linkage to acomodate a tighter mesh with the input and ring gear

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
