Purchased a riding lawn tractor several years ago. I have taken great care of this machine.
The problem is the transmission. It is not moving at all. It will move for about 3-4 feet then stop. This is a very consistent problem.
I have talked to the service repair people at Sears and all they can say is Hydrostatic transmission cannot be repaired, once they go bad they are not repairable. Now I am stuck with a 42inch lawn mower (still looks like a brand new one) and the way it sounds I will not be able to repair it unless I want to buy a new transmission for around $500.00. Why in the world do they make an unrepairable transmission. I have learned my lesson.
I will not purchase ANY PRODUCTS FROM SEARS ever again.
Sounds as if they purposely have their transmission made like this so someone can fall into their trap and spend $500.00 to buy a new one or buy another one of their junk lawn tractors. Buyers beware!!!!!!!
