SOURCE: Craftsman Transmission problem

Some of these tractors have a friction wheel that is driven off of a flat wheel on the bottom of the engine drive shaft. The rubber ring on this friction wheel could be worn out, or it could be out of adjustment.

I have a ariens rt 7020 7 hp. Model 901012, runs badly gas was coming out of carburetor , but there was oil that leaked out from around bottom of oil check tube, the oil is greenish in color.

Barbara, Sounds like carburetor may have dirt inside sticking float or worn needle and seat.Take mower into a good small engine shop, tell them what you have seen and have them diagnose and estimate repair.

Why doesn't it move forward or in reverse?

Many tractors and mowers have a key way on the axle and axle bore on the wheel hub.. Did you remove the tire and wheel from the mower axle? ..if you did most likely the drive axle key fell out of its slot on the drive axle and when you replaced the wheel it has no way to drive the wheels..try this start the mower put it in gear and try to move..have someone watch the end of the axle at the wheel
..if the key is missing the axle will be turning..but not the wheel..any good hardware store should carry them. just measure the depth and width of the key..something like 1/4,3/8 etc...good luck..

Axle seal

There is a plug about halfway up in the transaxle, fill till lube runs out. You will need a new seal in the unit eventually, but if leakage is not real bad you can just add the oil recommended by the manufacturer. Hope this helps, plese post solved on So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

Ariens mod 93604200 hydro tractor won't shift

Check all of your hydraulic fluid levels - if OK, look at the fluid - is it dirty? If so, you're filter is plugged and needs to be changed. Then find out how/why the fluid is getting contaminated.

How to adjust the clutch on ariens hydro 42

If you need the clutch adjusted there is a specific sequence for adjusting the clutch.I would spray with WD-40 or penetrating oil on the clutch movement , on the shaft (just in front of the engine) under the belts, there is only about 1/4" or so movement. Also lube all the linkage pivot points. If you still need to adjust the clutch download the manual with the model and serial number from and follow the procedures in the manual.

My Ariens 1540 will not go anywhere. Engine starts and runs fine but suddenly pushing the steering levers does not make it go. Just got it from a person that says one of the Hydraulic units overheats and...

hi there rermortimer

have you made sure the bypass levers on box hyrdo boxs are disengaged ( that is in the drive mode ) not push / free wheel mode

here is web site to download a owners manual

in the manual it shows the levers at the rear of machine

it is possible that the units may have o/heated and dropped there additive pack and or the belt that drives the hydro boxs is slipping , check that the box has correct amount of oil and have no air entrained in the oil , ( if it does cavatation is highly possible ) especially if oil has got quite low
alot of heat can be generated from this condition and can damage the pump and motor units in the hydro boxs!!

cavatation sounds quite noisy , makes a knocky / rattley/ rumbly noise , vibration can be felt
in the drive system as air bubbles explode in the oil and is quite damaging to hydro units in itself

may need to drain and refill both units with top quality synthetic type oil which will handle tempreture better , then purge air from units but check simple things 1st

have a look let me know
