Barrette's Small Engines Inc. - SmallEngines.ca FAQ's
Why would my hydrostatic transmission continue to drive when the shift lever is placed in the neutral position?
There is some shift control linkage used to operate the hydrostatic transmission. These control linkages may need some fine adjustment and/or periodic re-adjustment.
SYMPTOM: A sure sign that your product needs this type of drive adjustment is if your unit experiences a loss of drive when the linkage is moved to the Forward or Reverse position and/or continues moving when the shift lever is into the Neutral position.
Your Operators Manual will discuss this adjustment in the Maintenance & Adjustments section.
Note:Even our best servicing technicians may need to perform this adjustment a few times to get it just right and units with twin hydrostatic drives, such as zero turn riders, may require additional adjustment to synchronize the two transmissions. So please work carefully and be patient when performing this adjustment.
If further assistance is needed, please contact us or your local servicing dealer.
