SOURCE: Wheels do not freely roll backwards

SOUNDS LIKE THE PINONS ARE ON BACKWARDS. THE KEY SHOULD SLIDE OFF THE PINIONS WHEN PULLED BACK AND LOCK WHEN ENGAGED. YOU HAVE THE OPPOSITE PROBLEM OR ITS BACKWARDS!

SOURCE: Honda Harmony mower, self propelled hydrostatic,

If i remember correctly, under each drive wheel, there is a small gear, and under each gear there is a small metal rod that is what the transmission uses to propel the mower...it sounds like the rods either have dirt on them or they are just stuck and can not move to allow you to pull it backwards

SOURCE: the wheels lock up when i pull my lawnmower backwards

if you hold the clutch down to shift the gears after you release it if it doesn't move in reverse you have a gearbox problem and the easiest way would be to take it to a shop to have them fix it, it may not be too cheap but it is cheaper than getting the parts taking it apart and not being able to put it back together right. if you try to fix it yourself you could really mess it up and then it would end up costing you more than it would have to have just taken to the shop to start with.

The rear wheels are locked to the drive train. To pull or push the mower, you must pull out the release probably at the back of the mower, near the transmission.

Drive wheels lock up when pulling backwards


That is the rear differential. Some models have a lever on the rear to unlock the differential for towing backward. If that is not the case with your model there is nothing to be done. Farmerbear at fixya.com

The rear wheels will not turn in reverse at all. I


Rear wheel drives like this have pinion gears with rachet pawls that allow them to go backwards freely while locking when the transmission drives them.

You need to take off your rear wheels and carefully remove the pawls. They look like little squareish metal shaft keys with springs under them. You should notice that the keys or pawls are covered in what looks like grease.....which is actually worm metal from the pinion gear and oil mixed together to form this pastey greasey substance. Clean all that stuff off and lightly oil *( light oil...3 in 1 kind of oil) and reassemble.

You should hear the nice clean clicking of the rachet pawls as you roll backwards again!

Good luck and be careful!

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.
