In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: change oil in riding lawn mower

look at the side of the engine down low. There should be a pipe plug screwed in that has a square head. Put a drain pan under the area and remove this plug and the oil will drain out. It's best if the engine is warm. You should get 1 1/2 quarts of oil out of it. Let it drain for about 5 minutes and then re-install the pipe plug. Add 1 1/2 quarts of 30W oil and then cut the grass !

SOURCE: lawn mower has hydro gear transaxle reverse was

Most of the time when this happens the reverse shift linkage is too short. It is usually cause by either a bent linkage or worn linkage bushings.

The internal shifting fork can be bent inside the transmission which is rare but does occasionally happen... most of the time it is a linkage problem. Also check on the side of the transmission to make sure the shifting lever has not moved from the original position on the Yoke shaft.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 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!

Cub Cadet engine runs but, also will not go in forward or reverse


you didnt say what model this is, but i assume its hydrostatic because it has a drive shaft. is the hydrostatic unit filled with oil¿ if its ok, check the linkage from the pedal to the rearend (hydrostatic drive) make sure its not broken or loose.. if that [email protected]@ks ok, check both ends of the drive shaft making sure the couplers are not broke and the drive shaft is ok. hope this helps.

Yazoo rider left side pump stalls when cold


Im not a yazoo dealer but I can tell you some easy things to check, If you have a reservoir tank with an oil filter in line, there are two kinds of hoses suction and return if there is an air leak on a suction line it may not show an oil leak but it will put air into the pump making it week most of the time its cheap
hose clamps or loose hydro filter .

A lot of hydro use a gear case bolted right to the pump without any hoses , but that not what we call commercial .
good luck

Poula Pro Mower


Hi,your machine is probably a hydro static drive & needs the oil changed in the transmission.
But the pump that pushes the oil around inside it is probably to far gone for repair.
I am not sure about this machine but we have had a simlar problem with a rideon this summer.
It has one pedal that you push forward for forward movement & rearwards to go backwards.
We were able to get a new drive pump for the transmission but it was expensive, most of these machines have nearly the same transmissions so getting the parts should be no problem.
Also we do know is that there are some machines with oil emersed discs inside (like wet type clutches) these also need regular oil changes & can burn out without oil. (Bronze plated disc)
You would need to find the name plate on the transmission & there should also be model & serial no on the casing.
Once you have these details you should be able to find transmission parts lists online.
