Some do, some don't - if the escutcheon around the shifter handle has an R and 1 2 3 4 5 6, it's a manual shift, otherwise, it's a hydro - the "917" is not a "series", it is a source code for sears, it designates who made the machine for sears

Why is my Series 1000 LT1024 Hydrostatic Drive Cub Cadet not pulling?


In most cases the hydrostatic drives are not made by the company tractor or lawnmower.
This is in the owners manual.

Hydrostatic Transmission
The hydrostatic transmission is sealed at the factory
and is maintenance free. The fluid level cannot be
checked nor can the oil be changed. Always keep the
area around the transmission cooling fan free of grass
and debris at all times

Check belts. Check transmission fluid level if possible. Check linkage between shifter and transmission. Check belt tensioners under unit above deck.

Looking for the sensor schematics for a cub cadet series 1000, LT1050 hydrostatic lawn tractor. anyone help me?


Try looking at the directional lever at the Transmission. The PTO for the deck will shut off when shifting into reverse. You may have to simply disconnect or jumper the reverse switch depending on if it is normally closed or normally open. Try it both ways to see what works. Also check the engine oil level, The low oil level switch will shut the engine down if more than a quart low.

My MTD 12.5 hp briggs and stratton ride on mower is losing forward speed as though a clutch is slipping especially going up hills or slopes. MIKE


You didn't indicate what model so I don't know if it is hydrostatic drive or not. If it is not hydrostatic drive, it is most likely a worn belt or clutch adjustment. If you don't have your manual you can download one here:http://www.mtdlawnmowerparts.com/manuals.php
If it is hydrostatic drive it stil could be the drive belt or low water in hydrostatic transmission, or even water in the oil in the hydrostatic transmission. Always list model number when asking questions.
