From the description, i would guess that the brake is stuck and dragging. if it is a hydro, it could also be that the bypass lever is not fully releasing

My Husqvarna lawn tractor deck will not engage Tractor runs fine


First check the belt.Make sure it is tight when the lever is engaged,and the engine is off.Make sure the belt is on all pulleys,and inspect for frays in the belt.If the belt is ok then,run your hand under the fender around the area of the lever.Make sure there is no debris blocking the lever from fully engaging.If that is good.Next inspect the linkage between the lever`s handle and the deck.Again make sure there is no debris and all connections are snug.

I have Craftsman 42" lawn tractor with the automatic transmission. It runs fine but it is not pulling a grade now. The belt seems tight, what could be the problem?


As you attempt the incline grab the clutch pedal with your heel and pull it towards you if it starts pulling correctly you have a belt problem . If it makes no difference you are having hydro pump problems

Drives fine on level terrain start up a slight grade it stops,engage brakes nothing tractor goes backwards will not stop.


When you go up a grade do you smell the belt burning (rubber burning smell) when it starts going backwards on you. It could be that the drive belt is not tight enough.

sorry. I don't have an ansewer for you however I might have some helpful hints. Your mower should be going dam near 5 MPH. But yes can't cut in reverse. you have a belt going from the trans axle to the motor. It could be slapping against the frame. The idler puller or the tension pulley could be wobaly where the bearings are gone out. If you remove the 4 bolts on the back of the mower under the seat and gas tank it should visable tell you the story. My question is mine hits gears real hard as if trans mission needs oil or internal damage.
