My question concerns my 62522FE husqvarna walk-behind mower.

Customer Question

My question concerns my 62522FE husqvarna walk-behind mower. The front drive wheels are locked up, only freeing up after I start the mower and push it a few feet. Per the owner's manual I need to remove the wheel, but am unable to get it off after removing the locknut. I am hesitant to force the wheel off if there is something more than the locknut holding the wheel on. Please advise me.

Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer, the nut is what holds them on but they may be stuck , take a hammer or rubber mallet and lightly tap around the wheel . Tap outwards the way the wheel comes off

You can also grab both side of the wheel and kind of wiggle it as your pull it off , it most likely the gear hanging on to the wheel. Spray it with some wd40 , spray behind the wheel cover etc too
