Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 5 years ago

Thanks for the update. If your machine wont move forward or reverse, check the oil and filters for metal/debris indicating an internal failure has occurred. also verify the linkage is intact as well. Check the steering clutches for failure and excessive wear as well. Let me know
