My craftsman stop moving forward or backward after finishing the front lawn. Went to do the back lawn,†applied the brake, disengaged the blades†got off the tractor to move some obstacles, got back on, engaged the blades released the brake and nothing, no reverse no forward just a loud screech whenever I move the selector from neutral to forward or reverse. It was running fine, no fluid leaks or anything obvious. The main drive belt was a little frayed; since I had a spare I put it on with no change. Same here, Sears will come and look at it for 99.99, Iím going to a local guy that will diagnose for 20 bucks. Fearing the worst I asked Sears what the transaxle would cost alone; nasty! This thing has been nickel and dimming from day one.†Iím breaking down and doing what I should have done five years ago, John Deer. Iíll let you know what the local guy says, and make sure I go to church this Sunday.
