Question about Husqvarna Garden
The wheels on my Husqvarna Exclusive 5400 manual lawn mower are locked up. They will turn when forced, but will lock up again in normal use. The cutting reel turns freely, barely touching the cutter bar. The axle is held in place by two very large cotter pins, but they also turn freely. Please advise how to loosen up the wheels. Thank you, Bruce Young firstname.lastname@example.org

on yours you must replace the entire tranny unit - to make it roll you can remove the front wheels and remove the small gear on both sides - doing this of course will turn it into a push mower not self propel

SOURCE: Lawn mower keeps cutting off
from the sound of what you are describing the piston/rings/cylinder are damaged in some way shape or form this causes compression loss in the engine, and allows oil to enter the combustion chamber, in this case a new lawnmower would be in the near future

take cover off the top off deck and see if your belt have came off next turn deck sideways but before you turn it sideways take air filter off cause oil can come through and ruin the filter noe look and make sure the belt is on the pully

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this help

Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.
You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.
You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!
Good luck and be careful!
