Customer Question

I have a LTX 1046 v twin hydrostatic lawn mower model# *****
Serial# ***** My grandfather informed me my lawn mower will not drive forward or backwards last time he tried to use it. After I asked a few questions I beleive he pulled it with out pullin. The lever in the back of the lawn mower that frees the transmission so. Can pull and/or Push it. Does this require a complete transmission replacement @ cost of $900 plus or is there a smaller part inside transmission that may be the problem that may be cheaper to replace. I haven't had the chance to open it up yet. I wanted some Imput prior to removing anything.
Thanks ,
