Assume it's a hydrostatic transmission - most probably the drive belt has come off or broken. Be sure to replace it with a Kevlar belt as changing the belt isn't easy and you don't want to have to repeat the process too soon.

SOURCE: Ariens Yard Tractor 935 Series - initially drives, then stops moving as it gets warm

Is it a hydrostatic tranmission? If so, sounds like the fluid might be old or not the right viscosity. Recommend changing the trans fluid, and use recommended viscosity of fluid.

Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.

My Weedeater riding lawn mower will not move when it is in drive or reverse


Check your drive belt that it has not slipped off the drive cog under the motor. Also check the alignment of the motor with the handle on the right side (speed, reverse, and neutral lever).. This lever tilts the engine to engage the drive belt.. there is no transmission in this machine.. just how the belt engages by its angle when you push the lever forward and backward.. If the engine is running, it must be either the belt to drive the unit or the angle has been messed up somehow..

Can anyone help? My Cub Cadet LT1045 won't move (foward/backward).


Hi, check that the drive belt, pulleys and shafts are all ok and that they are actually driving the transmission, hopefully you will see the problem. If the transmission is driving ok and the fwd and reverse lever is functioning as you said, the transmission may have failed. Also check the hydro release lever is functioning. Regards Phil.

Mowing right along and suddenly the tractor won't go move


it's 1 of 5 likely things
The drive belt from the engine to the transaxle is totally slipping or broken
The linkage from the control pedal to the transaxle is faulty.
The transaxle is broken (not user fixable)
The by-pass rod is pulled out
The brake pedal is pushed or the linkage is stuck in the "brake" position.

You didn't specify a brand or type but it sounds like a hydrostatic drive model and if so, it is 1 of 4 likely things

Drive belt from engine to transaxle slipping badly (replace the belt)
FWD-REV pedal linkage faulty
Transaxle is broken or has fluid issues (not user fixable)
by-pass rod (neutral lever/rod) is pulled out a bit. (push it in fully!)
