  1. The sweeper wheels or axle (if live axle) need servicing and lubing if they do not turn freely.
  2. If the sweeper from end rides too low, the sweeper will essentially be dragging, possibly with wheels elevated slightly out of contact with ground. Remember, the ground is what turns the wheels. One way would be to raise sweeper hitch tongue by inserting washers between tongue and mower hitch.
  3. If all check, adjustment, and lubing does not correct, consider putting weight on the seeeper or in the sweeper collector to put more weight on wheel contact with ground.

SOURCE: craftsman lawn mower

I had both my front wheels wobbly - so I cut shims from a tin can - wrapped the axle of the wheels with the shims and then inserted them back into the plastic bushes. It was a snug fit - but helped quite a lot.

SOURCE: Lawn tractor forward movement problem

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.

the bar connecting the wheels is bent. this is easy to change. just pull the pins out on both sides and lift the rod out. you can straighten it in a vise or order a new one through sears. cost about $12. our local repair shop keeps them on hand.

Why is the forward engine pulley so hard to turn on my Craftsman 42" Model No. 247.288812 lawn tractor?


Are you talking about the Engagement pully? Item 24?
http://www.manualslib.com/manual/518759/Craftsman-247-288812.html?page=32#manual
If so, the reason it is hard to turn is because it is attached to the shaft of the engine and also has the pully for the wheel drive attached to the same shaft.

I put the rear end of my craftsman lawn tractor on a cinderblock to take the rear wheel off and fix it. It was on the block for a couple of day. Now my tractor won't go forward or backward. the belt...


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.

Mower will not free wheel.brakes off and hydros released


You have to do one more thing to move this tractor without the motor running.
It takes two people to move the Revolution. One needs to sit on the seat and hold the forward pedal down. It will then freewheel.
So, brake off, both hydro release levers pulled (do NOT pull hard or you will break the springs) and the forward (right hand side, big pedal) pedal pushed down.
Any other question? I know this unit pretty well.

Trans dose not work since i replaced rear tire on lt 1000 tractor


Similar thing happened to me . There is a half moon "key" that slides into a groove in the axle. Sounds like that fell out when you took off the wheel. Look around where you took the wheel off to see if you can find it. If not they're not very expensive at a repair shop. I did not know this & I took in in to the shop. Luckily they only charged me for the part.
