Question and Answers


The clutch and shifter are stuck. the axle turns but I think the the insides are dry and stuck. i dont see anyway to drain?fill transaxle? 502.254262


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having shifting the transaxle. I know how frustrating that is.

This Peerless 900-027 '900 Series' transaxle uses grease for the gears, not oil. In order to service it, it would need to be take off and disassembled. It would use Bentonite grease on the shaft and gears. While open, it would be a good time to inspect the gears for wear and replace as needed. I have included a Peerless service manual below that covers this series starting on page 37.

In regards to the blades, make sure the blade belt is intact, routed properly, and not stretched. If the belt is fine, I would follow the blade control linkage and make sure everything is connected. Make sure the drive system turns when the blades are turned. A thorough inspection should source out the issue. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
