How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Your zero turn mower is weak on one side because of one or more of many reasons: traction adjustment being wrong, dragging drum brake, bad dampers, incorrect balance, tire compression does not match, or there is air trapped in the hydrostatic motor.
If the tire pressures are different on each side, it can cause one side of the mower to engage less than the other. To fix this problem, you must inspect if both tires have the same pressure using a tire gauge. Once you verify that they`re unmatched, you must inflate the tires with the necessary pressure.
On most cars the switch is mounted on the gear box and it is operated automatically when reverse gear is selected. If the lights were added after the car was made, the switch may be a manually operated one mounted on the dash.
The neutral safety switch is located in the linkage or inside the transmission case which allows the vehicle to shift gear.
The DONBAR was developed to assist in the mounting and dismounting of a zero-turn lawn mower. The DONBAR provides stability and balance for people facing physical and/or strength challenges by offering an extra point of contact when climbing on and off a mower or moving from a sitting to a standing position.
Zero-Turn Mowers: Purge Your Hydraulic Drive System. Zero turn hydrostatic transmission problems can start with air in the system, a condition known as cavitation. When the pump is full of air instead of oil, it can`t generate the pressure needed to provide power. This is pretty common in zero-turn mower transmissions.
The drive wheels of a zero turn mower are controlled by two independent wheel motors. The ability for one wheel of the mower to turn forward while the other wheel moves in reverse is what allows the mower to turn in a zero-degree radius. Operators can make the wheels move in the same or different directions.

On my cu cadet zero turn only the left side turns and the right side moans but wont move ever with the release lever to free wheel released
ANSWER : Check the hydraulic oil level for the hydrostat drives(if it has a reserve tank located under the seat. Some ZT’s don’t have the reserve tank. Don’t over fill that tank. 1/4 inch above the bottom is all it needs.)

Also, check the steering arm bolts. Very often they work themselves loose and the arm doesn’t pull the valve rod that controls the hydrostat unit.

I have a cub cadet rzt50 mower…Need to replace a tire
ANSWER : There is a thru bolt, and inside and outside bushing, and center sleeve. Remove those to remove the wheel. Obviously support the frame on a jack. Most tires can be removed using a slight soapy solution and 2 smooth screwdrivers. Replacement, use a soapy solution around the bead, and using only hand pressure put the tire back on. Use a cinch strap around the center of the tire to help keep the tire beads against the rim and air it back up.

ANSWER : Hi, check you have voltage at the pto plug in connector when the mower is running and the pto switch on. If so the pto needs replacing. If not you have a bad contact or broken wire somewhere. Hope this helps, regards Phil.
