SOURCE: my murray 17 hp 42 inch cut hydrostat mower will

Hydrostat transaxles are very picky like the trans in your car. It must have clean fluid and be full of fluid. I am not saying to fill that transaxle to the top but make sure it is to the top of the fill line. Also it needs to be changed every few years and keep it clean to help it stay cool. If it has a filter make sure to change it when you change the fluid in the transaxle. That fluid is nothing more than 20-50W motor oil.

Is the belt in place which drives the transmission?
The belt should run from a pulley on the engine to a pulley on the transmission....if you have a belt drive system (the most common).

The transmission on my ariens automatic 19 hp stopped working, what can i do to fix it?

Check the drive belt first, it will be the upper belt. you will need to make sure a stick or something hasnt jammed up there and knocked it off. It will be easier to remove the mower deck so that you can get under the tractor to look up and check it out.

If you need further help, I’m available over the phone at

I am trying to get my 18.5hp 42" cut craftsman DLT3000 to move. The rod in the back is in, and the wheels are still locked up on the transmission. What would cause the transmission to lock up?

At the end of the rod under the battery there is a lever that bolts to the transmission you will need to spray with wd40 and tap it with a hammer back and forth until it starts to move then continue to oil it and move it back & forth with your hand , its stuck in the gear position. if you are looking to get it in the neutral position follow the above procedure these catch alot of dirt and seize up.
