STX38 Hydro - Stuck in forward.....
Post a Followup
||Heya, I have a STX38 with a black deck (Hydrostatic) It ran fine 2 weeks ago when I backed it into my garage. Today it will not start. The unit will roll forward with force but will not roll backward. When pushing it forward it feels as though it is turning the engine. I have checked all lever connections, cotter pins, etc that I can. It is the same when I have the lever in R/N/or F so it certainly seems like something is stuck. Looking for any advice at all. Big Thanks

||All hydros will resist pushing, you are forcing fluid thru the system when pushing it, UNLESS you pull the lever that disengages the tranny, usually located at the rear of the tractor (not familiar where it is on yours). Do not push this any great distance as it will cause damage to the hydro.
