Question about Husqvarna 26 Hp 54" Deck Zero Turn Riding Mower

1 Answer

Mower starts, but won't move forward. I found torn belt underneath. I'm assuming this is a drive belt (are there two--one for each wheel). How do I change it out. (Best way to lift a zero turn?).

First, wedge something in front of the front wheels (when you lift the back, there's no brake action). Get the jack from your car and position it to lift the rear of the mower chassis. Jack it up then put blocks under the rear wheels - you may be able to do both at once, or you may have to alternate - then lower onto the blocks. Get enough space. You'll have to take off the mower belt and remove the PTO clutch anchor (two bolts) and may have to take off the wires connected to the PTO clutch (connector may be above the chassis). Then pull off the spring that tightens the idler arm, remove the old belt (if it's still there) and install the new one. Refasten the spring to tighten the idler, replace the anchor and mower belt, and mow away. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.

Why won,t my toro z4200 zero turn mower go forward or back model#74360


Hi there, I assume the motor runs as usual, and doesn't cut out when you try to move forward or back. That would be a different problem than what I'm thinking about now:
If you look underneath at the transmission belt (this usually goes from the motor pulley to the rear transmission / diff) and see if it has fallen off a pulley, or disappeared completely. This would stop the forward or reverse drive of the mower. If this is the case, a new belt should solve your problem.

Inspect the pulley where the belt loops on the wheel transmission. There is a tension spring, that when you pull the level, it puts tension on the belt. If that spring is missing or the pulley does not provide tension the wheels will not turn because the transmission is not being engaed..

Lawnmower wheels won't drive


If its a riding mower it probably the drive belts off track or slung off. The mower will still start up and turn blades with the drive belt off, but want engage to go forward or reverse if this is the problem.

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Self propelled feature stopped functining. I previously replaced the wheels after the gears had worn down. Now I can't get any response to engaging the self-propelled cable.


Have you checked the drive belt? There should be a belt running from the main shaft (above blade) out to the wheel drive. You didn't list model number but I'm assuming it's front wheel drive. There should be a cover over this belt so it might be hard to see from underneath. Also there should be a cover on top going to the drive transmission. If the belt is OK, check to be sure lever is moving the transmission lever.

Tractor won't go forward or reverse


Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.

Craftsman model 917.271814 will not go forward or reverse. Heard a "click" and mower stopped moving; engine and blade still running.


Check the drive belt that runs back to the transaxle,it sounds like it broke.If the belt is in the pulley check to see if the transaxle pulley is turning when the clutch is out.Also make sure both wheel axle keys are in the rear wheels.If all this checks out the transaxle may have broke,look underneath to see if it is broken there.
