Assumptions:

  • Machine starts and runs, but the tractor will not go forward or backward.
  • Your machine has a hydromatic transmission with two pedals and not a manual transmission with individual speeds on a gear lever.
In the back of the machine there is a small wire lever. This lever can be pulled out. In the out position, the transmission fluid circulates without moving the machine. This allows you to push the machine around very easily. If the machine can be pushed by hand, without to much effort, this lever is in the out position. Push it all the way back in. The tractor will be much harder to move by hand.

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 to the transmission linkage. 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.

Of course there is the question of drive belts and pulleys. Your belts and pulleys must be intact.

For a machine specific diagnoses we need
  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Engine Model
  • Transmission Model
  • Deck Size
  • Hours on meter (indicates wear patterns and problems that only occur with time.)
  • If you haven't already done so, add a short description of the events preceding the beginning of the problem.

Craftsman riding mower back wheels not rolling, seem locked up, engine won't start. Clutch and levers still move freely. Was running fine last use. Not sure what is causing this


Grass always gets caught in mowers. THis may help.

Turn mower off, detach battery.
Turn mower on side.
Clean grass everywhere you can clean grass.
Right side mower.
Attach battery.
Start.

Does that help?

My Craftsman riding lawn mower LT2000 (2002/2003) stopped moving. The drive belt seems to be loose. The engine starts and cutting blade engages fine. Was working fine but stopped working when it started...


there should be a drive belt tensioner somewhere on the belt, it usually works off the clutch/brake, when you push on the brake it apply's the brake and also takes the tension off the belt to stop it from moving.
Not sure of your ride on mower but that is how my ride on mower works so I hope this helps.

My JD L130 has little power going foreard and almost none in reverse.


The forward reverse pedal linkage needs adjustment. Remove mower deck pins and slide out of the way. Pull linkage pin out then turn clockwise one full turn .move brake pedal while looking at it .You should see a small brake disc on side of rearend with a nut bolt going through the disc. Pull rod on back of mower that allows you to push mower freely.set parking brake try to move mower by pushing if it moves with break set tighten bolt that goes through brake disc til mower don't move.release parking brake try to move mower should roll easy.if not losen bolt 1/2 turn til it moves easy.reengauge rod on rear of mower to drive it test and be sure to place cable ties on any thing under mower dragging ground .If test works .reinstall mower deck.

Mower won't move


Judy sounds like an obstruction in the self propelled mechanism. Check underneath and make sure it's clear. If it's ok it may need a repair.

Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

Will not move


The transmission is shot. A common problem. Mine died after 3 years and 200 hours of use. Estimate to fix was almost $2000. I scapped it and bought a better mower. There was a rtransmission design defect in the RZT series.

Mower starts up fine then moves fine for about 20 feet then slows up and eventually stops moving. Also, the hydrostatic relief valve will not allow the mower to move freely


The wheels are adjusted too low causing the mower to cut the lawn very short. This will cause the blade to jam and eventually stall. Adjust the wheels so the deck is higher off the lawn and try again.
