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.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

I removed, re-inflated and reinstalled back right tire on my Poulan 42", 18 hpr riding mower, now it won't engage in gears and move forward or backward. I've compared the reinstallion with...


there is a slot on the axle for a square key to fit in.
when you took off the wheel it might have fallin off.
look around for a little square piece of metal.
like a little bar.
put it in the slot and put wheel back on.

Rear wheels will not turn. Worked fine when stored for the winter


Craftsman-Husky...same tractors-built in the same factory. I also had a problem with the hydrostatic transmission not providing power to the rear wheels. Here's what Sears told me:
(1) Check to make sure the drive belt is tight both under the engine-and the tranny.
(2) Air can get into the hydrostatic transmissions-especially during shipping (new mower) and storage.
So.....
Pull your freewheel pin out to disengage the tranny-then push the mower both forward and then backwards for 50' or so. Then push the freewheel pin back in and start the mower. If the transmission then works-drive forward-then backward-then forward repeating the cycle about 4 times. Drive about 50' in each direction. This should purge the air from the treansmission.
