Question about Poulan 38-Inch Steel Deck 15.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 5 Speed

1 Answer

Poulan Riding Mower will run in neutral, not in forward or revers

Poulan riding mower will run in neutral, but as soon as you put it into gear it wants to die, when you let out the clutch to engage mower blades it also dies. When you put it into reverse it also dies? What the heck? We call the company but to no AVAIL. Get told not sure....Help!

How do I unlock the rear wheels, I got a Poulan Riding Mower from a late Uncle. It won't roll forward or backwards


Kevin, if it is in neutral or if it is hydro-stat, you have pulled the pins in the back to unlock the axles. the brakes may be locked up. the last two mowers i got for some reason the brakes were locked up on them both. hope this helps.

Will not go into drive gear, either forward or revers.


On some models, mainly MTD built units, there is a metal pull out at the rear of the mower. If you pull it slightly up and let go, the metal pin goes in, and your drive train is bqck to operational.
