My craftsman 20.5 hp riding mower, model 917270850, will go into gear but will not move. Was working fine and when I started up a small hill in the yard it started spinnig then just quit pulling altogether. Won't move in reverse or any of the forward gears.

Check to see if all of the belts are in-tact. A belt may have become stressed and out of proportion from sitting for such a long time.

Hi
Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.

SOURCE: Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It

Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt

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 .
