Question about Garden

1 Answer

When I depress the forward drive pedal I move very slowly weather the deck is engaged or not. It is also very slow and sometimes stops in reverse. I usually have to use my foot and pull back on the forward pedal for it to even go slowly in reverse. I need help. I haven't had this mower very long and it has been a disappointment since I have bought it.

Travel pedals do not engage.

Things to check out. 1. That there is oil in the drive unit. Is there a reservoir on top and can you find a dipstick? A reservoir should be half full at least. 2. Is the disengage lever or rod pushed in? Look to the rear of the machine frame and low down. This disengages a valve to enable the machine to be moved without the motor running. If in the open position the drive will not work. 3. Check that the belt is driving the pulley on the top of the transmission. This normally has a tensioner which automatically takes up the slack. A worn belt can slip or jump off the pulleys. Look at the motor drive pulley to ensure that the belt is still on it. This is NOT the bottom one which drives the deck and has an electric clutch.

Why would a vehicle in reverse move forward

The question is a little vague but I think I know what your referring to. All modern automatic transmissions have torque converters. This is the device that connects the engine to the transmission. All vehicle manufacturers like the trans to be nice and smooth shifting. That's great but it does come with some minor drawbacks. If you are facing slightly down hill and you put your car in reverse but do not step on the gas slightly I can guarantee that you will indeed roll forward. You can eliminate that issue by holding your left foot on the brake while you shift into reverse. Then, as soon as you feel the trans engage, gently depress the gas pedal with your right foot and it will eliminate that forward roll problem.

Cadet LT 2042 worked fine changed hydro filter by lifting front with hoist to vertical. Lowered and topped off fluid. Now wont go forward or reverse. Makes no noise when pedal is engaged to move either...

You will have air in the system and will need purged. To do that you jack up the wheels to where they will turn freely then disengage the hydro and at an idle alternate forward and reverse for a for about 4 or 5 minutes. Recheck the fluid level and top off. Now engage the hydro and do the same forward and reverse for 3 or 4 minutes. You should have axle movement at this point. Hope this will help.

You didn't specify a brand or type but it sounds like a hydrostatic drive model and if so, it is 1 of 4 likely things

Drive belt from engine to transaxle slipping badly (replace the belt)
FWD-REV pedal linkage faulty
Transaxle is broken or has fluid issues (not user fixable)
by-pass rod (neutral lever/rod) is pulled out a bit. (push it in fully!)

The drive pedal is stuck forward and wont budge along with the brake pedal...

Drop mower deck and have a look.
Both rods run to the rear on the right side.
Possibly something interfering.

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 .
