Did a search for this question but couldn’t find an answer.

My mower is a Scag Cheeta 48 inch cut, 2012 year I think. Has ZT-3400 transaxles.
The mover will only move backwards on the right side. Not forward.
Moves forward and backwards on the left side. Has proper amount of 20w50 in tank.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Has it progressively gotten worse or just started suddenly? Check your reliefs and make sure they are closed properly. I’d try and bleed the system and make sure no air or air bubbles are there. Most likely an internal issue though if it flows one way and not the other (works in reverse but not forward. Also, try raising the mower in the rear and see if it will move forward with no weight on the wheel. If so, definitely an internal issue.

Thanks for your response. It started all of a sudden. Was cutting on the side of a bank when it happened. Broke down and carried it to a scag dealer yesterday. Will report back when I get the machine back.
