SOURCE: HYDRASTATIC TRANSMISSION DOESN'T MOVE

Far as I know the warranties are not transferable. Some hydrastatic transmission fluid can be checked by removing the battery and underneath there is a place to put the fluid and to check it. But not all models or makes gives you this option.

SOURCE: Huskee drives weird

If the belt is fine and it isn't slipping at all then the problem would be inside the hydramatic trany. It isn't serviceable and would cost more then the tractor is worth.

SOURCE: My Sears 917.272911 Lawn Tractor is eating mower drive belts

There's a couple of things that could be causing this. First, make sure the idler pulleys and blade pulleys spin freely. Second make sure the belt is behind the belt keepers on the two idler pulleys. There is only one on the left idler, but TWO on the right idler. I suspect that is your problem. Anyway, once the belt is on, engage the blades, with engine OFF, and inspect the belt routing, making sure it's not over or under something it shouldn't be.

SOURCE: Cratsman lt2000 lawn tractor will start but will

Is the transaxle pulley turning? If so have you removed the rear wheel recently and possibly lost the square key that fits on the axle?check those two items first.If ok it probably has a broken gear or shift key in transaxle.

Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.

Mower wont move forward or backwards and makes a ticking noise when pushed.


Just a thought , maybe the key that locks the pulley to the input shaft on top of the transmission has sheared and the pulley is just spinning on the shaft or the key on the axle shaft that locks the wheel to the axle and that would allow the brakes not to work.

Craftsman LT2000 Does not move (wheels do not move). blade engages and works finr


I would lower the deck to the lowes setting and look between the frame and the deck toward rear wheels and check the drive belt it sounds like it is slipping or busted.

My Craftsman riding lawn mower LT2000 (2002/2003) stopped moving. The drive belt seems to be loose. The engine starts and cutting blade engages fine. Was working fine but stopped working when it started...


there should be a drive belt tensioner somewhere on the belt, it usually works off the clutch/brake, when you push on the brake it apply's the brake and also takes the tension off the belt to stop it from moving.
Not sure of your ride on mower but that is how my ride on mower works so I hope this helps.

Why did Craftsman LT2000 stopped moving? Engine starts and blade engages fine.


The transmission drive belt is a separate one from the blade belt. The clutch pedal when released puts tension on the transmission drive belt so it tightens up and drives the gearbox pulley by way of a large spring. Make sure the spring is ok. The belts don't last forever and probably needs replacing looking at the age of the machine. That is a fun job as it is right up under the machine and runs from the engine pulley right back to the top of the transmission. You have to drop the deck right off and I usually find a tree with a large branch and haul the front up with a rope or winch so the mower is vertical. Makes it easier to work on. Drain petrol first though. Hope this helps otherwise get a mower shop to do it for you if you feel it's to much of a task. Good luck.

I have a 42" mtd lawn tractor. The blades do not


The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?

Replaced my rear wheel now my lawn mower does not move.


when you removed the wheel be sure you have put the keystock back in the slot cut in the wheel and the axle shaft in each wheel if you had both off
put the wheel on the axle shaft and align the slots and insert the key stock once the slots are aligned with the axle and wheel.
insert by hand or tap lightly with a hammer and insert the keystock far enough to reinstall the axles e-clip

Craftsman 19hp won't move when in gear


There is a square key about 2 " long that fits in the slot on the axle and wheel and locks them together.. You probably didn't see it when putting tire back on and knocked it out. If you go back where you removed tire, you'll find it laying on the ground.

No power when drive is engaged


Hi
Check your drive belt and the tensioner pulley that holds tension on the drive belt. Its possible for the tensioner pulley to be sticking and not putting enough pressure on the drive belt causing it to slip.
Grab hold of that tensioner pully and make sure it moves in and out freely against the drive belt.
