If the lining of your grass bag is clogged with old grass you should clean it using a jet wash, air line or simply a brush and water. Once clean the air should flow through the grass bag more efficiently and improve the grass collection.

sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the trans-axle on this is a
sealed unit and oil cannot be added. The only thing you can do is an air
purge or replace the trans-axle.Doing a purge is really easy:
put transmission in the freewheel mode so you can push it, ensuring that it is on a flat surface
start engine and run full throttle
release clutch brake
push the drive pedal or lever to the full forward position for a ten count
push the drive pedal or lever to the full reverse position for a ten count
repeat steps 4 & 5 three times
depress & lock the clutch brake
return the transmission to the normal mode
drive tractorIf this fails to correct the problem you may need to replace the transaxle.If you find this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!
I disengaged the transmission to push the tractor in my garage a few days ago.
Today I re-engaged the transmission. At first it wouldn’t reverse, then I repeated the operation and all was well…I thought.
I set off towards my lawn…up a small slope, and towards the top of the slope eased off on the forward drive pedal, while deciding which way to go, and the tractor slowed, and stopped. Then, to start moving forward again I pressed the forward drive pedal. But, the tractor had no forward drive…nor did it have any Brake pedal. There was just nothing ……and the tractor rolled back down the slope, quite quickly, gathering speed, backwards. Luckily it is not much of a slope and it came to rest on the flat again. When I tried the Forward drive to set off again, it worked…and the brake worked too. I thought I must simply have panicked somehow. So I set off again…and at the top of the slope, again paused…eased off on the forward drive……..and again the same thing happened. No forward drive, no brakes!
Has anyone encountered this problem before?
and …does the brake pedal operate on the transmission somehow, rather than on the road wheels?
