  • 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 drive 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.
