SOURCE: I have a Cub Cadet RZT 50 mower. The left drive

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.

If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.

If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!

SOURCE: Cub Cadet 2166 series. Mower will not engage.

Unfortunately, the circuit is a little complicated - it involves the "PTO switch" (the switch you pull on to engage the mower), a "reverse switch" that senses if you've put the mower in reverse, and a relay operated by the reverse switch. The reverse switch is there to disengage the blades if you try to reverse while mowing. A failure in any of those items, or the connectors and wiring between them, will prevent the blades from engaging. Unless you want to "shotgun it" and replace parts one-by-one on a guess (which many repairmen to do save time, but at your expense) you need to use an ohmmeter or test light to trace and isolate where the failure is.

Cub cadet zero battery is dead after sitting a few days.


This is an electrical issue, you have a short in the harness, can very well be the keyswitch...even though you turned it to the off position, it's giving the unit the impression that it's still in the on position.

Possible transmission fluid issue. Drain, Fill, Drain, Fill.
Call dealer or check online to find which fluid it takes. It's probably 20w-50.
Look at sticker underside of tranny to fetch its model number then look it up online to see parts shematic for transmission.
Parts shematic shows the amount and type of oil.
You will have to work the axels and do the transmission purge located in your manuals first few pages then top it off its last few 8 or 10 ounces.. (unboxing)

Possible carb dirty.

I have a cub cadet zforce 48 zero turn. It wont start unless I jump across the solinoid. I've changed it and still does the same. Whats the problem?


Make sure the control arms are all the way out, the brake is locked in the on position. There are safety switches on each control arm and one on the brake lever, also there is a safety switch on the seat...if either is faulty the mower will not key start.
