Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
The control handle has about 8 inches of travel area. The first 6.5 inches do nothing. When it starts to move, it jerks forward because I can not move it slowly in such short space. What to do, What to do???
Also, How can I get a manual? This was a store floor demo unit and they lost the manual.
Thanks for any ideas and suggestions.
Well on my AYP manufactured tractor, which is much like yours but has the name Husqvarna on it, the hydrostatic transmission is shot and it exhibits much the same characteristic. That is no forward nor reverse movement until it gets nearly to the end of its range. The F/R lever on the right side is connected to a much smaller lever on the end of a shaft which goes into the transmission. What I would do is check the linkage to make sure that the range of travel on the speed control moves the smaller lever input into the transmission. If the range of travel is the same, you may need a new transmission, they are expensive. If there is some slop in the linkage, you may have another day in the sun. You can google "manual, craftsman, lawn tractor" and find some links to get a manual. What I did was find another lawn tractor as the cost of repair far exceeded the value of the old mower.
