1. Confirm the transmission is being powered by the engine.

2. Is it powered by a belt? Is the belt on? Is it slipping?

3. With engine OFF, jack the rear of the tractor and turn the rear wheel. Does it turn freely? Does if turn the transmission?
Work backward up the drive train to confirm each component is in good working order. You will then gain an understanding of how it works. If you do not find the problem, respond to this post with more specific information as to where the problem is in the drive train.

SOURCE: my garden tractor makes a funny noise when i put it in drive

Wrong belt size? Did you put everything back the way you took it off to put the belt on? Usually, it's the belt, if it doesnt fit tight it will vibrate, have a burning smell and wont let you shift smoothly.

SOURCE: Craftsman DGS 6500 garden tractor won't engage

Hi
There is a pin in the back by the hitch - make sure it is pushed in. If it is pushed in then check to see if there are any oil leaks under it.

SOURCE: lawn tractor won't move when put into gear

First, check the tension of the drive belt. There should be an idler pulley which is spring loaded that creates the tension. When you push the clutch in, it will release the tension. Also, check to see if the rear wheel hubs have set screws which lock them onto the axle Make sure they are tight.

SOURCE: john deere 300 garden tractor hydrostatic drive will not work

check two things, make sure the by-pass rod is pushed all the way in and the drive belt from the engine to the rear end (tranaxle). If both check out ok do not attempt to service the tranaxle at home. have thet serviced by a dealer.

Did you forget to reinsert the key or did it slide out while putting the wheel on. A quick way to check is if you remove the center cap and have someone put it in gear and try to go while you are watching the axle. If the axle is turning and the wheel is not then the key is missing.

When i dich in gage the cluch the motor will shatoff or in gage the mower it will shut off .and put it in gear it will shut off.


Check your seat switch. If the switch thinks no one is in the seat, it won't allow the mower to move or blades to turn.
Let me know,
Gary
