Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

First you need to inspect the traction belt that drives the transmission.If it is on all the pulleys and is not damaged then probably have a problem inside the transmission. That belt should be tight unless the clutch/brake pedal depressed.

Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.

Thank You.

Hmm well this could be a simple thing as a bushin,, to damaged clutches in the transmission.. In eighter case a mechanic (repair man ) will need to take a look at it.. Maybe another expert here will be able to talk you through a fix,,

Here's a link to the owner's manual:

Here's a link to the parts manual: Just above the title on the document is a link that allows you to download the PDF document so you can read it. On page 14 in the circle is what I think you're looking for.

Sorry I can't help you more. I'm really not familiar with this tractor. Mine has an electrical clutch to engage the blades. Hopefully this will help.

I have an MTD mower tha tis ver jerky in forward, reverse is fine. What could it be? The trans is about 2 years old. I thisnk it could be the clutch plate or the differentital, however, reverse works fine...


Assuming that the model you have is a single speed transmission with variable speed belt system and that the mower has never been used to tow anything heavier than a dump cart. 9 times out of 10 its usually the forward gear shift key not allowing it to go all the way into forward gear. Might be able to ajd the shift linkage to acomodate a tighter mesh with the input and ring gear

Shuts down in reverse


I'm not familiar with that particular mower but I'd bet it is a direct switch. Follow the shifter arm down and you should see a arm or button that arm contacts a switch when you put it in reverse. pull the two wires off that switch, put a wire in between to connect them and it is by-passed.

Please rate if this helps-
