Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
The first thing to check, is your transmission drive belt. Check to see if your belt is off one of your drive pulleys. A loose, worn, or slipping drive belt, will affect the drive motion of your mower. Check to see if your idler pulley is okay. This is the pulley that keeps your belt tight.
We can continue from here. Thanks!
