My John Deere Lt155...

My John Deere Lt155 won't engage in forward or reverse after running over a small wire garden fence. Blade cut up fence and I removed broken pieces of wire.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

I'll have to go to the storage shed. Take a couple of minutes. Serial Number MOL155B137545. The B may be a 8. It a LT155 tractor with a 38" deck.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

My John Deere LT155 won't engage in forward or reverse after running over a small wire garden fence. The blade chopped the fence to pieces which I have removed.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

It also caused a rear flat tire which I have replaced.
