My lawn mower model 425613x8a only drives in reverse what is my problem and how do I fix it?


I'am not to familiar,with this model number,of this tractor. But i do know that there is a safety switch,installed below the shift lever. Usually this switch,controls the neural,forward and reverse for your tractor. I suspect the forward motion contact is bad in the switch itself. You will have to remove the motion drive assembly and purchase a new switch,sometimes the safety switch is part of the whole assembly. You can find this assembly,under the shifting lever under the tractor,s floor. It could be on the right side or the left side depending on the location of the shifting lever.Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD 12/03/15

Brand new Troy-Bilt XP Horse, model 13bx79kt011 - Won't Move


Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

How do I adjust the speed control handle


Well on my AYP manufactured tractor, which is much like yours but has the name Husqvarna on it, the hydrostatic transmission is shot and it exhibits much the same characteristic. That is no forward nor reverse movement until it gets nearly to the end of its range. The F/R lever on the right side is connected to a much smaller lever on the end of a shaft which goes into the transmission. What I would do is check the linkage to make sure that the range of travel on the speed control moves the smaller lever input into the transmission. If the range of travel is the same, you may need a new transmission, they are expensive. If there is some slop in the linkage, you may have another day in the sun. You can google "manual, craftsman, lawn tractor" and find some links to get a manual. What I did was find another lawn tractor as the cost of repair far exceeded the value of the old mower.

Lawn tractor forward movement problem


Check the adjustment from the lever to the transaxle, if the linkage is ok the transaxle may be suffering from age and has leaking internal seals.

Troy built lawn tractors, belts


You may have a pully that is not spining freely. Or you may have a pully that is not positioned straight. Ariens had a problem with that. so your troy built may have the same.

Troy built lawn mower (riding) won't go full


I did not know riding mower had a gas pedal. I know if you leave the throttle control up all the way the engine will choke out. The pedal you are pushing, I think, is the forward/reverse hydrostatic transmission. You may need a new drive belt. The one you have now may be stretched out.
Good Day.

Craftsman 42 in 19.5 unable to control speed forward motion


is this perhaps a hydro trans? if so, try putting the shift lever in neutral, then let off the brake pedal, use the shift lever to go forward and to neutral to stop - same with reverse, don't even use the brake pedal except for emergency stops. if it's a manual shift, it's possible the belt is incorrect, and/or the belt guides are bent or the belt is improperly routed - the belt guides are important as they allow the belt to "blossom" off the engine pulley, reducing the "shock" load when engaged - hope this helps

I need to replace the transmission drive belt and need instructions


There's actually a Troy-Bilt Pony riding lawn mower as well.  If yours is like ours, a model 13AN77TG766 [URL:http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/DocGetter?doc=769-02243a.pdf], it doesn't actually have gears but rather a variable-speed pulley.  The lever on the dashboard actually controls how high the brake pedal will go, while the brake pedal controls the position of the variable-speed pulley, which controls the effective gearing ratio.  That's how it can go at any speed with the engine still going at the same rate and without having to disengage a clutch.

So perhaps your mower is engaging the parking brake too early (page 17 of our manual).  The other thing I can think of is grass in the variable-speed pulley.  To check that, remove the spark plug and the battery (7/16-inch socket).  Then move the shift lever through its full range and check the shaft of the variable-speed pulley (part 63 on page 34) for debris, both above and below the loose plate thingy.  (You should be able to turn it quite easily if you put the forward/reverse lever in neutral.)

Hope that helps!
