SOURCE: new tractor power loss on a grade, deos not develop full speed

Hello Joe

If you have an automatic or hydrostatic transmission then you have a lemon, which means once the oil heats up in your transmission it thins out and clutchs and swash plate have no grip on the drive system which is hydraulic pressure needed to hold on the shaft and axles this happens all inside the transmission you cant see it but you can tell when going up slight hills and when you have the blades engaged it crawls like a turtle get you warranty out Joe..... dont touch anything that may void your warranty..... just call service department they will send service man out to your home even after that keep a good eye on your tractor since its still under waranty for further problems.

Joe your 20 year old craftsman had a better built ****** by sears and you probably had a 6 speed or five speed even hydostatics were good too,they dont have much problems except belt slipping its an easy fix this new tractor u need service man right away.

Gravely zt 48hd starts, blades engage and start, but mower will not move forward or reverse after lowering brake. suggestions?


There should be a lever/engagement clutch on the back of the mower. It is disengaged when you manually push it. It will have to be engaged again to allow it to move.

Why isn't something engaging when accelerator pressed?


It would help to know more information about the mower in question. Walk behind push mower? walk behind self-propelled mower/ Riding lawn mower? Lawn tractor? Or goat...just kidding...lol. The engine horse -power or cc's and make of the mower and engine. Anything happen before the problem or was it straight out of storage. Does the gas pedal feel normal? Could you be talking about the forward/ reverse pedal? These types don't engage by depressing them, they engage by releasing the pedal.
I'm going to guess you have a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor. The pedal for those types of mowers controls the transaxle ( rear wheels, transmission and differential basically). If the pedal move properly and it was working ok when it was stored, then check to see if you can push it with little effort. On most transaxles there is a disconnect rod to disengage the transaxle for towing the mower without damaging it. Pulled out for disengaged and in for engage. If that all checks out it could be very low on transmission fluid or the drive belt might be off or broken depending on which type you have. If it is low on fluid, you have a leak. Hope this helps.

What is the proper way to adjust deck of a gravely pro stance 52" fixed deck? Should deck be level or slightly pitched to front?


Ideally, the blades should be level when measured on a flat concrete surface. Otherwise, they'll cut shallow trenches - front if the deck is pitched forward, rear if the deck is pitched rearward. If the blades are level, they'll cut flat all the way across.

Drives fine on level terrain start up a slight grade it stops,engage brakes nothing tractor goes backwards will not stop.


When you go up a grade do you smell the belt burning (rubber burning smell) when it starts going backwards on you. It could be that the drive belt is not tight enough.

Tractor will roll in neutral but will not drive when put in gear. Will not roll when in gear.


I had a similar issue when I first got my tractor. the problem was with the linkage in the transmission just behind the lever you engage or dis-engage to make the mower roll freely ( on mine it is on the lower right, next to the rear axel- brassish in color ) what I noticed was when I changed to position of that lever the linkage in side didnt move all the way ( kinda like how a cars door lock/latch might stick) anyhow I was able to press the linkage forward by using a long-large standard head screwdriver in side of the notch where the lever protrudes thru the transmission ...the slight click in place cured my issue hth
