Hi, remove the battery and battery carrier and clean all grass and debris from the hydrostatic drive, cooling fins and fan. I'm not sure what transmission it runs but the solution applies to all. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Mower won't move in forward or reverse, it just makes a loud wining noise. I've had this happen before but I usually can get it moving.


If this is a hydrostatic drive. Check oil level in transmission. If you have been running it low on oil, it may be too late for the hydrostatic drive unit. If it has a drain plug, drain it and change the oil.

Transmission reverse and 1 st gear, 20 hp


transmission and shifting problems are tricky. from the limited information given, i'll go on assumptions - if this is a hydrostatic transmission, your brake is stuck, it will need to be adjusted - if it is a six speed, several factors come into play. if it will shift okay with the engine OFF, but not with it running, you have a belt problem. has the belt been replaced recently? is it the correct belt? is the belt routed correctly? if none of the above, check the belt guides to make sure that a stick or something hasn't poked up there and bent them. their purpose is to make the belt "blossom" away from the engine pulley so there is no tension on the belt at the transmission. if it won't shift with engine off, the shift shaft in the trans is probably rusted and sticking.
