Question about Garden
I have a Z Master riding mower that I believe is a 2000-2002 model. The hour meter is not functioning so I can't supply the total hours. It was serviced recently and has only 6-7 hours since service. Today In was moxing and making a U-turn. Partially through the turn the rear wheels lost power as if it had suddenly been shifted into neutral. Engine, mower, PTO are all functioning properly. When I inspected the mower belt through the foot plate it was fine. Is there a separate belt that engages the rear wheels? I found no broken belts nearby. Regrettably I do not have a service or owners manual for the mower. Thank you for your help. Dave

most likely rust has taken over
find some liquid wrench or pb blaster and spray the axles liberally and let it penetrate the axles and wheel hubs where the axle goes through.
use a 2x4 and a hammer to tap against the wheel hub to try to move it down the axle then tap in back on to try to free it up as the penetrating oil works in, spin the wheel and tap in different areas of it
the worst case cenario would be to use a torch and heat the axle and hub up and drive it off, but it sounds as though you are moving it some and with some patience they eventually should come off
when you put them back be sure to coat the axle with some grease and do not forget to reinstall the key stock in each wheel, if they have it
the bolt in the center of the axle is all you need to remove and note where the washers came from and where they go back.
hope this helps you some
