Customer reply replied 4 months ago
last week, the snow blower works well and the tractor go's well in forward
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is there oil in the transmission and can it be checked could this be the problem
Thanks for this information. If your oil level was the source of our problem, it would also affect the forward motion of your mower.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the model is 13WQ92AP010
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is this the number you are looking for
that’s it. Can you give me a minute or two to pull up a diagram of your mower?
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
I am back. I see you have a Hydro-Gear transaxle in your mower. Is your new belt an OEM belt or is it an aftermarket belt.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
aftermarket
The reason I asked, is because I am wondering if your belt is tight enough. How many belts does your mower have?
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
three
Thanks for confirming. Have you checked to see if the lever on your transaxle is shifting fully into reverse position?
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no
Can you check this for me? Check for a build up of dirt and debris in the area of the shift lever on your transaxle.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
While you are there, Check to see if your transaxle drive belt is fully tight. Also, check for signs of an oil leak on your transaxle.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it works well until it gets hot that is after 15 min of snow blowing
I will check it out tomorrow as I will remove the seat and fender
Does reverse work well for 15 minutes?
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Does forward still perform well after 15 minutes?
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
this will be done tomorrow when I take it apartyes it works well for 15 min +
I also heard that there is a pressure relief valve for forward and another for reverse
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the forward does work well as to as well as it should I can't say as I an moving snow it's hard to tell if it is slipping or if it is acting up
If after 15 or 20 minutes, your reverse fails, but your forward drive continues to work well, this indicates that our problem is internal.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I should take it to the dealer?
Your transaxle does have check valves for forward and reverse motions of your transaxle.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
I have a suggestion for you.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
GO
First check the following. Check your drive belt to make sure it is tight at all times. Check the movement of the shift lever on your transaxle. Check for an obvious oil leak. Try to check this without removing your fenders.
Ask Your Own Small Engine Question
Let me check one more thing for you.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
OK I will do this tomorrow and I will call you
Thanks. Let me know your results. We will wait before you take your mower to a repair shop.

I have checked the rear end of the tractor I took the wheels off. there is no dirt or grass all is clean ,and no oil leaks and no grease in the area the is all free I moved the pedal forward and back it looks as it is moving the arm on the transmission as far as allowed to travel I tried to move it when it was in reverse and the arm on the transmission would not move any farther.
Thank you for checking. If you are 100% sure that your belt is tight enough, this could mean that our transaxle problem is internal.
