Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
I have seen this problem on these machines numerous times. It is the drive pinion on the end of the axle which drives the wheels. If you will remove the pinions from both sides of the axle(be careful to not loose the key and spring when you remove the pinion), clean and lubricate the axle as well as the inside of the pinion you will fix you problem. Make certain that you do not switch the pinion from one side to the other or you will create another issue in that it will not pull itself.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
