No, but it's better to lift the mower up than tip it over because the gas will leak out and cause a serious fire hazard. But if you can empty the gas first, then no problem. Also, you might get a little oil leaking from the filler cap, but you can tie a rag around it to minimize the mess, and don't leave it tipped over for days. Once you put it back down, give the oil 30 minutes to run down where it should be, and no problem. Thanks for using FixYa, and good luck

    I almost forgot! Take the battery out before you tip it! You don't want battery acid leaking all over!!!

I cannot get my Poulan riding lawn mower to go into gear. What am I doing wrong?

Check your drive belt underneath the engine (on a crankshaft pulley) and make sure it is connected to the drive pulley on the transaxle (this area is under and probably just behind the seat. Don't confuse this drive belt with the belt that runs the blade mandrells on top of the cutting deck.

Cub cadet riding mower blade won't turn on. when you pull the blad to turn it on you can here a click but the blade won't turn on and start spinning.

If the click you hear is the electric PTO engaging, then your deck belt is broken or off a pulley some where. Check the belt & then clarify if needed
