i was given a white lt 125 hydro

the rear end seems like its locked up.

 i released the pressure by the lever

nothing.

also when i try and start it i get a clicking from the solenoid

but the starter does nothing.

when i tap the starter with a jumper cable

it just sparks and nothing else.

i would say the starter is bad. correct ??

 

on the up side it comes with a bagger  system 

which i may try to hook up to the yard machine

Make sure the engine / hydrostatic are not stuck (turns over).

It sounds like you have a bad starter.

Before you change the starter, check the engine and starter grounds. Good Luck, Rick

Is there a two-speed by chance?  Maybe it is caught between gears on lever?  PB blast stuff and get working right, then try to turn. Hard to imagine hydro being locked up, to me at least.  Check brakes on it too. If a disc on side, they sometimes just rust up and get stuck, or drums can be even worse if swelled liner in those. For jumping, use good cables, too long of ones makes for same issues as a weak battery many times.  Try a new battery first?

I just went out to check the brake out and the peddle moves way to easy.
I'm going to have to wait till the weekend to check it out more.
While I was out there I took a few pics

This might sound dumb, but I had similar looking rig that acted locked up, could turn by hand some  on engine. Come to find out the BELT was just rusted into the pulleys and was loose for partial turn, then grabbed hard where it was rusted.  Check the rear pulley on trans also for same.  This small size probly has disc brake and pedal may still move and pull springs and such and not really set brake or release. Pull the belts, take off wheels to see and try to work the top pulley on trans and see if movement. Body off would be nice too, but probly quite a job to remove??  Have had drives only on those briggs starters jamb and be stuck in place on flywheel or ropes or junk wrapped around the same drive and not allowing it to come back off.

got a chance to look at the white yesterday 

i could turn the belt by hand , it has no resistance at all

so not sure why it wouldnt roll. when i tried to 

push it , it rolled with no problems at all.

so now ill put a battery in it and try to get it started.
