I have a John Deere GT225. The hydrostatic drive

I have a John Deere GT225. The hydrostatic drive just suddenly quit. I had just backed it up,shut it off,took the trailer off,got back on & started it up but it wouldn't go forward or reverse. Fluid levels are fine. There had been no clutch chatter or lurching to give any indication of trouble. HELP! I need my tractor back.

    Thanks for your input, but I found it was the traction drive belt. It's running like a Deere again.

Had same thing happen to my gt225. The drive pulley nut had loosened allowing splined pulley to strip on shaft. A new pulley may solve the problem of the shaft splines are ok. My JD guy said to get a new pulley and if it slips to tack weld it on. He thought new pulley would work. I did not find the problem until I took the other tranny out and I already had a replacement, so the old tranny less a new pulley is sitting on the shelf!

Sounds like your linkage is disconnected, With the tractor off raise the seat and back panel (if possible) and work the shift and look for failing linkage.

Try this link to Deere customer support:

If that's not your model, look around - they do seem to have quite a few manuals online, and offer to sell you a paper copy if they don't have an online version. Good luck!

I have a john deere 316, the other day i was moving snow with it and all of the sudden it lost all power to the hydrostatic and to the front end quick attach. I was wonder what would cause this and how to...


First check level of hydraulic oil. Sight plastic tube just above and to the right of the hitch. Should be in the middle of the tube.

How long since you changed the hydrostatic oil filter under the seat deck?

Next see if the small splined shaft is turning btween the seat deck and the transaxle from the rear of the tractor. If not, it sheered a key in the hydrostatic drive shaft from the motor to the drive. (Had this happen to me)

Check the lever under the right side fender that disables the hydrostatic transmission to allow the tractor to to be moved without dragging the wheels. Make sure its not in the wrong position.

If all these are ok then the hydrostatic pump has failed.

My 4210 4x4 with hydrostatic drive quit driving runs well but will not travel forward or reverse


Hi, the engine will power the hydrostatic drive via a drive belt. See that this belt is in place or if it is worn out and loose. By replacing this belt you should get your machine running again. Hope this helps

John deere 300 garden tractor hydrostatic drive will not work


check two things, make sure the by-pass rod is pushed all the way in and the drive belt from the engine to the rear end (tranaxle). If both check out ok do not attempt to service the tranaxle at home. have thet serviced by a dealer.
