SOURCE: NO FORWARD NO REVERSE

I had the same problem so I looked under the mower and the belt that goes from the engine to the back of the mower was off so I pushed the clutch as far forward as I could and the belt went on it and it worked

Troy built storm 2890 snowblower slow in reverse


There is an inspection pan on bottom of snow blower remove the 2 or 4 bolts and drop pan
inside you will see an aluminum wheel (drive wheel) also a rubber faced wheel whitch runs on the aluminum wheel at a right angle (like a needle runs on a record on a record player.
Clean plate and rubber wheel using brake clean to degrease surface .
Also there is an adjustment to move the rubber wheel farther to the left for more reverse speed but in doing that you might lose top speed forward.

When i start the car and put in reverse, car cuts off. if it doesn't cut off in reverse it does in drive. then the car shudders, especially when slowing down.


how about scanning car and giving it a tuneup-clean throttle body and IAC then maybe change plug wires and dist cap--purchase a haynes book for maintenance-adios

My craftsman lawn tractor 42" cut (2007 model) cuts off when i try to engage the cutting blades


You have a safety switch somewhere that is open, like the seat, you have to be in the seat or it will kill the engine, sometimes the clutch has to be in, not moving, sometimes the gear selector in neutral, You have a bunch of safety switches that prevent the mower from spinning if you are not in your seat, not ready, etc. Check them out. Hope this helps.

Nearly all lawn tractors on the market are designed to kick the cutting deck out of drive when reverse is engauged.

This is controlled by a simple electronic microswitch which can be disconnected but I would advise to leave it as it is ;)
