Most hydro units run off of a belt or shaft from the engine.
Look under the seat/fender, and find which it is.
Please let me know what you find.

I would lower the deck to the lowes setting and look between the frame and the deck toward rear wheels and check the drive belt it sounds like it is slipping or busted.

Riding mower won't move forward or reverse


WHAT MAKE AND MODEL MOWER? YES...YOU EASILY COULD HAVE BROKEN THE AXLE!
SEE IF EACH WHEEL WILL SPIN INDEPENDENTLY OF ONE ANOTHER IN BOTH DIRECTIONS. ALSO, SOME MOWERS HAVE A ENGAGE/DISENGAGE TRANS LEVER (USUALLY PULLS IN AND OUT AND LOCKS WITH A CLEVIS PIN RETAINER)

Is there a lever or pull device that disengages the drive so you can push the mower? If you can push the mower with the brake off, the trans is not properly engaged.

Is this helpful?

do you have the complete model number from the data tag on the mower frame? there are two typical systems for these machines, both require the belt to be tight and not slipping at the crank shaft, and the pulley on the trans-axle to not be slipping on its shaft, the older style trans axle uses a belt tensioner system to tighten the belt and turn the pulley, i.e. if the pulley turns then the axle should too. this can be checked by hand with the axle and belt removed. the second system is a clutch style axle that has a constantly tight belt and uses a small cable controlled lever on the transmission housing to engage a drive clutch inside the transaxle, if moving the lever forward doesn't cause the axle to turn as the pulley and shaft are turning the clutch mechanism is usually toast. with both of these systems one should also note whether the axle is turning inside the wheels when they are on the ground, the over running clutch sprags inside the drive gears could be stuck causing the wheels to turn without resistance applied, but stall when in contact with the ground.

while inspecting the trans axle note any wobble or free play in the axles or input shaft, this will indicate a worn case or bearing, resulting in a slipping gear in the trans axle.
