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

My craftsman lawn tractor 42" cut (2007 model) cuts off when i try to engage the cutting blades


You have a safety switch somewhere that is open, like the seat, you have to be in the seat or it will kill the engine, sometimes the clutch has to be in, not moving, sometimes the gear selector in neutral, You have a bunch of safety switches that prevent the mower from spinning if you are not in your seat, not ready, etc. Check them out. Hope this helps.

Tractor will not go in forward gear, only reverse.


Try rocking the mower forward and backward while you try to shift it.

Will not go into gear


a hydro uses a foot pedal on the right side , you push forward to go forward or rock the pedal rearward to go in reverse - a regular transmission has a shifter usually between your legs for reverse 1st 2nd or 3rd gear - you also said the blades wont engage . are they electric ( with a switch ) or do you manually move a lever .
