    Honda HRT216 simply will no pull any more. I have had this for about 6 years with no probelm. Runs perfect but no matter what speed I put it in, it will not go. I checked for debris around the axle and it is clean. My guess is the gear box but IU cannot find a parts detail to get it apart. Can anyone offer some help?

    Before spending money on it, check to see if the cable that controls the motion has not slipped out of place. .
    Good Luck

    Thanks but that was the first thing I checked. We are good there. It is something in the gear box and I hope someone has been through this and knows the best solution.

    Thanks for the input guys. Looked a little harder and found there to be trash in the linkage on top of the gear box. It was not allowing the cable to engage the drive gears.

    Thanks again.
