Customer Question

I was mowing with our Gravely zt 60hd. It is about 2yrs old. Has 62 hr. Was mowing slowly over some medium tall thistles & it stopped moving forward. Deck engaged, but movement forward or back. Handles seemed a bit stiff. What's going on? Julie

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first thing that I would look at is the hydro drive belt that runs from the engine to the hydro transmissions that actually would make the machine move. If this belt has broken or come off of the pulleys it would cause you to loose all forward and reverse motion or movement.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
