Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

2 Answers

Lawn tractor will not move

There is a sliding bar that allows the transmission to engage for riding or disengage for pushing while in neutral. In either position the transmission will not engage to move nor disengage to allow for pushing?

What to do? How can I locate a manual for the 2001 Craftsman 42" 16.5 hp lawn tractor?

Why isn't something engaging when accelerator pressed?


It would help to know more information about the mower in question. Walk behind push mower? walk behind self-propelled mower/ Riding lawn mower? Lawn tractor? Or goat...just kidding...lol. The engine horse -power or cc's and make of the mower and engine. Anything happen before the problem or was it straight out of storage. Does the gas pedal feel normal? Could you be talking about the forward/ reverse pedal? These types don't engage by depressing them, they engage by releasing the pedal.
I'm going to guess you have a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor. The pedal for those types of mowers controls the transaxle ( rear wheels, transmission and differential basically). If the pedal move properly and it was working ok when it was stored, then check to see if you can push it with little effort. On most transaxles there is a disconnect rod to disengage the transaxle for towing the mower without damaging it. Pulled out for disengaged and in for engage. If that all checks out it could be very low on transmission fluid or the drive belt might be off or broken depending on which type you have. If it is low on fluid, you have a leak. Hope this helps.

Pedal is free- mover does not move


Two possibilities to look for.1. The linkage may have lost a connecting pin. Follow active rods from pedal to control arm on transmission. 2. There is a disengage rod to allow the machine to be pushed without the engine running. If this is in the disengaged position the transmission will not drive. Look at the rear and low down for a lever or rod which is connected to the transmission.

Craftsman 917273482 will not shift into gear, and I can't push it because it won't disengage


If there is too much play in the drive belt due to belt stretch or linkage wear, the belt will be too loose to drive the tranny but still cause the tranny input shaft to rotate preventing it from being put into gear.
Do the gears grind when trying to put into gear? With engine off you should still be able to push the machine if you put it in neutral. Unless, of course it is a hydrostatic transmission, in which case there should be a lever to push/pull which will put the hydrostat in neutral. This is all assuming that it is a hydro and while running the machine won't move when putting the drive lever into forward or reverse.

Cub Cadet tractor failure to move


Check the bypass for the transmission, make sure it is in all the way, if it is, check the belt from the engine to the transmission, make sure the belt tension spring is riding on the belt and that the belt is tight.
