If it is hydrostatic, the release lever is probably pulled. This allows it to be pushed or pulled. This little release is usually located low on the rear of the tractor. Make sure that the little wire hook is not pulled out and hooked.

In addition to the by-pass lever that Kevin mentioned, the brake/clutch pedal also activates a fluid by-pass. So check that the rear lever is all the way in. Make sure it is still connected up by the transmission. Then make sure the brake lever is properly connected and fully released. Unless you have a problem inside the tranny, that should get you going.

For a machine specific diagnoses we need

  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Engine Model
  • Transmission Model
  • Deck Size
  • Hours on meter (indicates wear patterns)
  • If you haven't already done so, add a short description of the events preceding the beginning of the problem.

    forgot to mention, the tranny is belt driven. Check the belts and pulleys that go to the tranny.

Mower starts and runs but won't move forward or reverse and brakes don't work.


If your transmission is automatic on the drive axle, look for a small lever inside the frame and below the seat. It can be hard to find the first time. This lever disengages the drive inside the auto gearbox so the mower can be pushed by hand. If the lever is not not moved, pushing the mower also tries to turn over the engine making it impossible to move. With the lever moved accidentally the drive is disengaged and the mower won't move in either direction. The lever operates a flexible cable that comes out from the auto transmission.

Hydrostatic mower goes in reverse but not forward. Only 73 hrs on it!


On my hydrostatic there is an adjustment on the forward/back lever which can be made to run all reverse or all forward. Normal setting gives both of course. Look at that adjustment. Maybe something let go.
