Was it working correctly earlier or is this your initial operation?

According to the product manual for "loss of drive":
1. Bypass linkages in the bypass position
2. Hydro belt worn, damaged, or broken
3. Idler spring loose or broken

1. Make sure that the bypass linkages are in
the drive or engaged position. Located at
the rear of the machine. Refer to decal on
the rear of the unit.
2. Replace Hydro belt.
3. Replace Idler spring

On the flange in front of the rear tire are the pull handles for disengaging the hydrostat motors. If the are pulled forward and dropped in lock position, you'll have no movement either direction. That's the only thing that will stop motion of these units. They're on both sides, in front of the rear tires, up close to the frame and are just small hard wires bent down to get hold of and pull out and drop down in lock to disengage. Push them up from lock position and push them in. I cant understand how they would have just come out while mowing, never happened to me. You pull the tabs out and lock only to move the unit when not running.

My JD L130 has little power going foreard and almost none in reverse.


The forward reverse pedal linkage needs adjustment. Remove mower deck pins and slide out of the way. Pull linkage pin out then turn clockwise one full turn .move brake pedal while looking at it .You should see a small brake disc on side of rearend with a nut bolt going through the disc. Pull rod on back of mower that allows you to push mower freely.set parking brake try to move mower by pushing if it moves with break set tighten bolt that goes through brake disc til mower don't move.release parking brake try to move mower should roll easy.if not losen bolt 1/2 turn til it moves easy.reengauge rod on rear of mower to drive it test and be sure to place cable ties on any thing under mower dragging ground .If test works .reinstall mower deck.

Brand new Troy-Bilt XP Horse, model 13bx79kt011 - Won't Move


Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Mower starts and runs but won't move forward or reverse and brakes don't work.


If your transmission is automatic on the drive axle, look for a small lever inside the frame and below the seat. It can be hard to find the first time. This lever disengages the drive inside the auto gearbox so the mower can be pushed by hand. If the lever is not not moved, pushing the mower also tries to turn over the engine making it impossible to move. With the lever moved accidentally the drive is disengaged and the mower won't move in either direction. The lever operates a flexible cable that comes out from the auto transmission.
