Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you.
Can you provide more information from your machine? I am not able to find any reference to a LT148. Can you provide the model and serial number that is on the tag located on the frame of the machine?
According to the information that you have provided, the machine will start and run but does not move forward or backward. Does the mower deck operate?
Okay, the first thing that I would check is the drive belt that goes from the engine back to the transmission. It could be broken or off of an idler which would cause the machine to not move. Have you recently had to push the mower without starting and running it? If so, did you pull the hydro release lever and forget to push in back in. If this happens the machine will not move or will move really slow.
You have two belts on the machine, one that runs or turns the blades, the other is up higher that goes from the engine back to the transmission.
To see the second belt or drive belt you will have to look up under the frame of the machine just above the mower deck.
Just maintain the information that you currently have and you can come back to this post and continue when you are ready or at the machine.
Did you not provide an email address when submitting your question? If you did then you should receive an email that will allow you to come back to this post or question at a later time.
