Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

Loss of transmission power after 15 minutes

Craftsman DGT 4000 Unit mows fine for 15 minutes when cold. Shortly thereafter transmission stops moving the unit. Blades still turn. Just cant move. Did the air purge as the manual says but did not help. Could It be low on trans Fluid? If so where do I add. Believe its a sealed unit. Any Help would be appreciated. Thanks

If you don't have an oil spot under the transmission in your parking spot you probably don't have a leak. It is far more likely that the idler pulley is frozen. Is is on a spring loaded lever toward the front of the tractor, made of plastic, and if your take belt tension off it, it should spin freely. If it is bad, you can easily get a new one from sears.com.

My craftsman tractor will only mow for about 10-15 minutes then won't move.the transmission oil is okay and it is hydroststic driven


In my dealings with hydostat drives, the forward-reverse valve is bad or the pump itself. When it is cool the hydraulic oil is thicker but thins as it heats up, letting it get passed the bad seal(s) causing low pressure!

Broken gear at the end of the steering linkage, or broken teeth, also check to see if the stationary gear mounted to the tractor itself isn't broken off or worn out.

If you go to sears.com and click on parts. You will need to enter your model number-not dyt4000-but the model number on the machine's ID plate, probably with the serial number.

It will respond with your mower parts diagram!

Check the fluid level in the transmission. If the fluid level is low, the trans will act as if it's slipping.
