The 244120 is referred to a dozer blade. This blade is much heavier than the regular snow blade and fits garden tractors. If you were able to mount the blade on to your tractor, the frame would not handle the weight of it. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

mower

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the starter is making a noise that is a good thing. The problem could be a weak battery or the starter gear is stuck. If you have a battery charger, I recommend charging the battery and then check the operation. If you do not have a battery charger, you can use a pair of jumper cables. Please click here to watch a video on how to jump the tractor.

If the tractor does not start and makes the same noise the starter gear is probably stuck. To free it up you will need to remove the starter.

If you are not able to push the tractor when in bypass the problem is either the bypass is not released when it should or the brakes are hanging up. First, inspect the release rod. The rod should be connected to the bypass lever on the transaxle. If it looks ok, move the break lever on the transaxle back and forth to make sure it is free. The brake lever is near the bypass lever on the transaxle. This will be on the right side.

Please make these checks and reply with more details if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
