Well you have a fault with the belt which goes from the engine to the transmission being too loose or the transmission itself has failed. Get underneath it and, with the engine cold and not running, grab hold of the belt and see if there is any slack in it. This would be the topmost belt, it should not have any slack in it unless the clutch pedal is pressed down. Don't try this with the engine running unless you have an extra set of fingers and a surgeon at hand. If the belt is good then your transmission has failed and you need another mower as the cost of the transmission will exceed the value of the mower. There are mower boneyards around and used trannys for sale on ebay, but most likely you will be looking for another mower.

Will not move


The transmission is shot. A common problem. Mine died after 3 years and 200 hours of use. Estimate to fix was almost $2000. I scapped it and bought a better mower. There was a rtransmission design defect in the RZT series.

Is it a hydrostatic tranmission? If so, sounds like the fluid might be old or not the right viscosity. Recommend changing the trans fluid, and use recommended viscosity of fluid.
