Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Open Question

I own an Ariens 1534 mini zoom. When pushing arm levers forward or backward, the mower jerks instead of moving smooth. The only time it moves smooth is when it is in really slow speed.

    Frame is broken by engine mount. Instead of propelling you forward it wants to go into the ground because it has no support. Ariens is a piece of junk. They don't stand behind their products.

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.

SOURCE: Rear skirt on lawn mower flips under when backing up

Sounds like the skirt is too long for the cutting height you are using, either raise the cutting height or shorten the skirt. Remember it's a safety guard for trash kicked up when mowing!

Hello rfbarrett:

From your Description it Sounds like the Plate that is Attached to the Carburetor (that the Throttle cable Attaches to) Thru Shaft (holds and Moves the Throttle Valve) has Loosened and is Simply Turning on the Thru Shaft and Not Moving the Thru Shaft and Throttle Valve at All.

SOURCE: My riding mower workes fine fore about 45 mintes

Im assuming the tractor is a hydrostatic, in this case when the transmission starts to go...thats it, call the company and find a replacment or get another tractor. unfortunately rebuilding them isnt all that worth it

It will not go forward it is only 1 year old and yes it starts my husband past away and I don't know what I am doing wrong


After the engine starts you must put the mower into gear so that it moves. Look for the gear shift lever or whatever.

Hydrostatic lawnmower doesn'i want to move


There will not be any actual adjust in the unit, there will be some adjustment in the rods from the hand/foot lever, if you can see the arm moving freely on the unit when you work the foot/hand lever it is probably not a linkage problem, if there is an external brake disc, make sure the brake is not binding, finally somewhere on the unit will be a bypass lever for push mode, make sure this has not been engaged.

Not sure, but i think the electronic clutch is not engaging when i push the control levers forward or backwards. the engine and the mower deck both run, but the mower will not move


The electric clutch is to power the blades/mower deck. There is a belt that drives the hydrostatic pumps to power the wheels. Make sure the Parking brake is OFF. Could be a belt, spring, idler pulley.

Ariens ezr 1742 will not move. everything works fine except it will not go forward or reverse.


There is one common problen that causes this. Infront of the rear wheels there are two housings for the indepentent hydrostatic transmissions. There is one gold colored shaft with a ninety degree angle on it sticking out from EACH of the housings on the top front. Again these are on both sides and they each need to be pushed downward so that the rods can then be pushed backward into the transmissions to inguage them so both of the wheels are powered. Give this a try.
