You may have to disengage the mower blade in order to put the mower back into gear. Get back and let me know

After emptying the grass from the storage on the back of the rider, when I start to mow again, the grass that is in the catcher from the deck to where it shoots out, gets clogged and will not move on to...


Clean out your chute also and don't let the catcher get so filled up, check it for readiness to empty more often.Don't cut wet grass that tend to stick and cause trouble. Good Luck...709

When i put mower in reverse it moves very slow an when in neutral mower still moves forward have to pull lever back beyond neutral position to find neutral is there an adjustment on transmission


yes

there is a adjustment under the r/h rear gaurd just under where the lever goes to hydro unit you should see a slot and a adjustment bolt arrangement

make sure you put the tractor in true nuetral 1st then undo the bolt that clamps lever to shift arm / shaft ( this connects to plate that operates swash plate on the pump ) and move the lever either fwd or back until (without moving transmission from true nuetral ) it fits into the nuetral slot correctly and tighten the adjustment bolt - test and adjust as nescesary

Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up


Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!
