SOURCE: On the Troy-bilt RZT 50,
have you considered removing the pulley from the top of the mandrel? might be easier to put the belt on by taking off a nut than breaking welds and rewelding when you are done. i do not have a lot of respect for troy bilt, but even they know belts have to be replaced at least once in the life of a product so there must be some less drastic way. have you troubled yourself to take a look under "support" over on the troy-bilt website?

First, check the level of the hydraulic fluid (usually the dipstick is right inside the fill cap, and you just raise the seat to access it). If it's low, fill 'er up with the right fluid.
If that's OK, test if the lack of 'pull' affects the left wheel in both forward and reverse -- try going up a hill forward, and backing up it in reverse. If it affects both directions, maybe you will be lucky -- the problem could be that the bypass for the left hydraulic motor has opened somehow. (The bypass is used to let you push the mower by hand in case of an engine failure, etc.) So look for a fat-headed bolt sticking out of the left hydraulic motor. Check that it's tight -- rotate it just like you would tighten a bolt, clockwise. If it wasn't tight, that may be the problem; just tighten it and try the mower.
If this doesn't resolve it, you probably have a problem in the hydraulic valves, hoses, or motor, and a trip to the dealer is needed. Probably won't be cheap, sorry my friend. Good luck, and please rate if this was helpful, thanks!

There are safety interlocks on zero turn mowers. These prevent starting unless you have:
1. the handles in 'neutral' position
2. the brake on
3. the mower engagement (PTO) switch off
4. yourself in the seat.
Chances are one of these conditions hasn't been met. Since you were reversing when it happened, perhaps you haven't got the handles back to neutral position?
