Question and Answers

Q:

Why is My Craftsman Lawn Tractor difficult to freewheel? 917258691 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. 

First make sure the brake is releasing completely. If the brake is releasing properly, then I suspect the issue could be one of several bearings or bushings inside the transaxle preventing you from easily moving the mower when in by-pass mode. I stongly suggest taking the mower in for service. Tearing down a hydro transaxle is not a do it yourself repair.
