It may be full of dirt etc and has soaked up most of the oil inside the case, if the axle seals are worn and the selector shaft seal is worn I would say that is the problem, if that is the case you may be up for a new trans as I have done a transaxle just recently and the damage inside was extensive and expensive.
you will have to remove the trans and seperate the trans case for inspection
Hope this helps

Why is my Series 1000 LT1024 Hydrostatic Drive Cub Cadet not pulling?


In most cases the hydrostatic drives are not made by the company tractor or lawnmower.
This is in the owners manual.

Hydrostatic Transmission
The hydrostatic transmission is sealed at the factory
and is maintenance free. The fluid level cannot be
checked nor can the oil be changed. Always keep the
area around the transmission cooling fan free of grass
and debris at all times

On my cu cadet zero turn only the left side turns and the right side moans but wont move ever with the release lever to free wheel released


Check the hydraulic oil level for the hydrostat drives(if it has a reserve tank located under the seat. Some ZT's don't have the reserve tank. Don't over fill that tank. 1/4 inch above the bottom is all it needs.)

Also, check the steering arm bolts. Very often they work themselves loose and the arm doesn't pull the valve rod that controls the hydrostat unit.

On my 2007 cub cadet zero turn my right wheel will stop working


This does not sound good if its still under warranty get it back there asap... sounds like a lazy drive weather its juat a faulty drive or your hydro pump not feeding that side, it should not be unservicable after 90hrs... even if its out of warranty get it fixed asap as the metal may spread to your pump or other drives and that will be very expensive.

Problem with left side hydrostatic transmission


This is a well documented problem with cub cadet ZT transmissions. They tend to go bad after 200 hours of use. Sometimes having the dealer change the transmission oil will help (they need to remove the transmissions to do this!). Most times, the transmission is gone & must be replaced ($800-$900).

Sound to me like a design defect. My ZT-50 lasted only 4 years. Needless to say, the replacement was not a cub cadet.
