Hi, My name is***** will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here. Professionals are not employees of the site but users of the site and help on here as time allows depending on their daily schedule.Sorry to hear you're having troubles with your tractor. If you have no forward or reverse speeds, it leans strongly towards a clutch failure and a clutch that is slipping. Be sure to check all of your fuses as well as your safety switches on the tractor such as your seat switch and your clutch/PTO switch and wiring for any problems but I suspect that this is most likely more of a mechanical type failure than electrical. I would have your clutch checked out for potential failure. I also recommend checking your transmission oil condition and level to see if there is any signs of dark or discolored oil as well as any sign of trash or debris that would flag internal mechanical problems within the transmission that would require disassembly for further inspection for repair or rebuild. I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back with the results of these checks if any further help is needed. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.

Oil in transmission is on full and it's clean, tractor was bought new in 2013 it has only 481 hrs on it ,tractor has never been treated ruff at all,the clutch has never slipped , used tractor not even an hour a few weeks ago then parked under my carport , went to use it today and I cranked it but it will not move out of its tracks, I don't believe it's the clutch at all, would more believe it's a safety switch somewhere that's not letting it move

Thank you for the information. Check the wiring within your safety switch circuit as I mentioned and for possible problems with your safety switches.
