If the main drive belt, from the engine to the rear end of the tractor broke, you won't move, nor will you hear a whining or grinding noise!
An easy check- inspect if each rear wheel has a key installed between it and the axle shaft. One pops out- it won't drive.The key is a square piece of hardened steel that is inserted into the axle, then the wheel hub is slipped over it and the axle, then the necessary fastener is installed to keep the wheel on. This could be either a bolt, or a spring clip. And, if the transmission has failed, you may or may not hear any whining or grinding noises!

My guess it the drive belt is toast as you said it was smoking, look at it and the order a new one. Here is a site you may be able to download a manual, Tim:

SimplictyYRZ01 hydrostats not engaging


The only thing the two hydrostatic drives have in common is a drive belt that ties them to the crankshaft. If both side quit at the same time that belt is most likely the problem.

My hydrostatic pedal does not move the tractor in either direction


There is at least one belt that goes from the engine to the hydrostatic drive. It is highly likely that this belt has slipped off a pulley so the unit won't drive. It is also possible that this belt is broken there again causing the unit not to drive.

MOWER WONT MOVE


Drive belt broken or slipped of pulleys, hydrostatic drive filter(s) plugged. Should be one or those, Roger. Follow the drivebelt with your hand (disconnect battery to be safe) and see if it hasn't slipped off the engine drive pulley, idler pulleys, or axle pulley. If you tractor is hydrostat, may be time to replace filter.

My 4210 4x4 with hydrostatic drive quit driving runs well but will not travel forward or reverse


Hi, the engine will power the hydrostatic drive via a drive belt. See that this belt is in place or if it is worn out and loose. By replacing this belt you should get your machine running again. Hope this helps

I have a cub cadet mower and it has the hydrostat trans drive and I hit a tree root in the yard and the tractor quit moving. The mower deck still runs so is there a belt broken or what could be wrong?


There are two belts - the main drive belt from the engine to the hydrostatic transmission, and the mower belt that runs from the engine to the mower deck. Sounds like the main drive belt broke or came off. It's not an easy job to replace because it's up against the chassis underneath, and you usually have to remove and replace some parts to get at it. Take a look under there, see if the belt's gone, and decide if you want to tackle it or have a shop do it.

Wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??


Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

Cratsman lt2000 lawn tractor will start but will not move forward or backward. I tried changing the drive belt, but that didn't work.


Is the transaxle pulley turning? If so have you removed the rear wheel recently and possibly lost the square key that fits on the axle?check those two items first.If ok it probably has a broken gear or shift key in transaxle.
