Check the drive belt that runs back to the transaxle,it sounds like it broke.If the belt is in the pulley check to see if the transaxle pulley is turning when the clutch is out.Also make sure both wheel axle keys are in the rear wheels.If all this checks out the transaxle may have broke,look underneath to see if it is broken there.

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

Zero turn will not move forward reverse or turn


These units use Hydraulic pumps for motivation. If the unit stopped all at one time, I suspect a drive belt came off.
For both pumps to fail at the same time would be very odd. Check the v-belt driving the wheel pumps.

Lawnmower wheels won't drive


If its a riding mower it probably the drive belts off track or slung off. The mower will still start up and turn blades with the drive belt off, but want engage to go forward or reverse if this is the problem.

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?

Model RZT42. When you back up the blades shut and when I go back to forward, the blades will not engage.


Some of the newer riding mowers have a safety system on them that won't let the blades work while you are backing up. If the blades are engaged and you put it in reverse they will stop. You usually have to reset the blades, turn them off then back on, when you put it back in forward.

When backing up the mower blades shut down and won't come back on when I try to go forward again.


on most riding lawn tractors you most first disengage the blades before going into reverse moving the tractor stop, put the tractor in a forward gear then re-engage the blades. if this dose not help please contact me. Thank you

Stalls when engage blades in forward, but cuts fine in reverse


Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver
