Just bought a decent 109 with tiller and mower. It has been sitting for two years. Got it running yesterday, purrs like a kitten. Problem is when in forward or reverse it won't move. Everything looks to be connected and correct..any ideas ?

:wave: Welcome to the forum! The valves in the hydro may have stuck down. Does it roll easily?

Welcome to GTTalk. Congrats on the new cub. There is probably a travel valve on those somewhere to protect the transmission from damage if you need to push or tow the tractor. That may still be in the travel position. I have never owned one so I can't help with locating the valve.

  :ditto:  Also check the roll pins in the driveshaft. They might have broken or come out. You can check the valves and the rear roll pin by pulling the tunnel cover off.

As mentioned, check the control valves. Pull the tunnel cover and start the tractor and see if they pop up, sometimes they get stuck.

Also have you checked the fluid? Sounds like a dumb question, but sometimes it's easy to forget the simple things. Does it try to move at all? Make any noises?
