Question about Ariens 34 In. Zoom Series Riding Mower

Ariens 20/48 zero turn left wheel dont want to go.

My mower was doing fine i finished my lawn and then the left wheel decides it is done. It tries to move when activated in either direction but it just will not go. I cant find any way to check the fluid or filters if it has any. any ideas or solutions will be greatly appreciated as i really dont want to have to cut my yard with a weed eater.

Sealed units factory, take the wheel off see if the key has broke looks like a flywheel key but longer may have sheared stopping the movement of that wheel

Check the tension in the belt! I thought my pump was bad too. But I found that the belt was slipping on the left pump. See if you can move the idler arm to put more tension on the belt. My Idler arm froze and I tapped it with a hammer and it tightened the belt and it was like new again. Could be you need new belts as well.

Hope that helps.

I am also having problems with the tension on the blades as well. In that case the spring is completely compressed so no tension is on the blades and if there a small load on them it slips as well. It looks like they re-drilled a new location for the idler spring bolt see:

I have an arians zoom 34 zero turn mower...seems after it gets hot (about 30 min) the left side doesn't want to go....could it be low on tranny fluid? can you check and fill if it is? thanks chris...

If you are not hearing any noise coming from the wheel motor on the left side and you fluid level is good you have two choices to chose from. One, raise the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Run the units wheels forward and reverse for about five times each and then try it again. If this works, you just bled the hydraulic system of air. If this did not work, you need to have the left pump flow tested at your nearest shop and most likely you will have to replace the pump. Hope this helps. P.S. When was the last time you changed the hydraulic fluid and filter? George
