Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman LT1000, 42 inch. When I let out the clutch after putting it in forward or reverse, it screeches and doesn't move. It started ok, but I stopped in backing it out to avoid hitting something. When I put it in forward, the screeching started. Now it scheeches both when going forward and in reverse.

Hello. Check the belt(s). That squeal usually means that a belt has slipped out of a pulley.!

Get out park


some older models have safety switches in the seats so if it malfunctions, the motor dies if you put it in gear. Start with that and see if that could resolve your issue. Good Luck.

Transmission will not engage.


The transmission belt is probably loose or the clutch is faulty.

2 things, one, the belt jumped track, broke, or melted in place, 2, the hydrostatic ****** is out of oil, you didn't say if it was hydro or not. I doubt that the gear box has gone bad, but I would put more blame on a belt or pulley. Check it out. Hope this helps.
