Check your clutch belt and pulleys to see if your belt is off or worn. Check for worn pulleys.

I have a Kubota G6200 hst lawn tractor. Mowing the other day and it started sputtering. Then the forward/reverse pedal quit working.It starts great. just will not move.


Obviously you have an issue with the drive to the rear wheels.. Need to check the transmission of power from the motor and see where it stops. Could the the tranny or shifting mechanism at fault

If there is a belt drive check for a good belt or one that has not stretched and slipped off its pulley.

I have a Craftsman Model #247.203701 and it will not go forward


Not enough information in the question to answer properly for you. Is it a Manual or a Transaxle type? Usually if its a Transaxle,the shift handle will have a Module Reverse,that has three positions,Neutral,Forward and Reverse. In this module,there is a Safety Switch,if this switch is faulty in forward,it will not move. To purchase this switch the whole module has to be ordered.If the tractor is on a incline the motion belt,may be slipping.Check the belt to see if is slipping,the belts stretch over time. I have seen these belts not move forward,but will in reverse. These are two answers to your question. If the belt is bad,you can purchase this belt at any Sears store. Give them the model # of the tractor,they will look the belt up for you. Or go online at SearsPartsDirect.com.Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/07/15

No forward or reverse


have you checked the belt, when the drive belt slips off one of the pulleys, which will happen more and more often till the belt has bean replaced. thats a place to start.
is the belt engaging the transmition and the engine?

Have a JD 300 with front loader. The tractor will not go forward when the tractor is started. It has a reverser and will go backwards immedictely when started. If the weather is real hot it will take...


Hi, don't know if you have checked this but anyway if you hydraulic oil filter is clean there may be another sintered bronze filter in the sump of the hydraulic tank this could be patially blocked> don't know this particular machine but if it is partially blocked it may be that you will clean that or there is air in the hydraulic system. Hope this is of some help.

Mower slips in and out of forward gear but rides perfect in reverse;What do I need to adjust?


Reverse is a different gear set than forward gears. Sounds like forward gear set has a broken tooth. Not an easy fix.

Lawnmower trans?


Thr hydro is at the rear of the tractor so its hard to believe the oil has come from here up to the front, also they have a multi grade engine oil in them not transmission fluid, are you sure this machine is not in bypass mode ( push mode ) the oil is more likley come from the bottom engine seal, and quite possibly covered the belt making it slip.

Craftsman 13 hp lawn tractor slipping in reverse and low gears


Really hard to say without looking at it but it sounds like a pully has seperated or is trying to come apart they are made in two peaces.

John Deere L120 transmission high pitch noise and no forward move


Try jacking the unit up. Start it up and try moving pushing the forward and reverse back and forth and see if it does it then. It sounds like an oil way in the hydrostatic unit has a check valve stuck. Of course make sure that the fluid lever is up. Hope this will help you. donnyb60
