    I've read through this thread and it seems to have good information so I hope someone can help. I have my SST18 and suddenly it stopped while cutting the lawn. It won't move forward or reverse, only right or left. I took the fenders off and cleaned it up, lots of grass clippings in there. I ordered the Tech Manual but it won't arrive until Friday. I'm thinking either the belt is loose or the clutch is shot. Any thoughts?

    We own a SST18. Last week, my husband was mowing a friend's lawn. The grass was wet and he tipped the mower trying to mow a steep hill (which we now know was too steep). Thankfully, my husband was not hurt, but mower ended up landing upside down. The hood is in several pieces, which we can replace down the road. Hopefully we will be able to find something used. But our immediate problem, is the steering. The mower will not steer in forward or reverse. We have poked around as much as we know how and everything seems to be intact. Does anyone have any ideas on what to look for? We are fairly mechanically inclined, but not mechanics, by any means. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.
