I just have a Simple Question:   Has anyone had any trouble with the Foot Pedal on there Mower?

Mine Moves Foreword...Fine!

But, Reverse does Not!...You have to Push Very Hard, down on the Pedal with your Heal to get it to move!

I have Inspected the Linkage, seems to be No adjustments....Kinda Goofy!!


Does have the Tufftorq K46 BT Transaxle....Which works Fine...Foreword!  Lol


This must be a On Going Husqvarna Problem?

My Neighbor has a John Deere with the same Transaxle,  His works...Normal!!


I have Rebuilt many Hydro-Gear Transaxles...Like # 140343...where the Brake Shaft Assembly, Spline always strip's out.  EZ Fix!!    and they Have Fully Adjustable Linkage.


Any Feed Back Would Be...Interesting!!

Don't know your set-up, but on my light Deere the pedal doesn't move much for reverse and I take my Heel and pull back on the upper drive pedal and it goes much faster. Have not looked for adjustment on it. Was thinking of adding a block or metal tab or something on pedal to make it longer where it comes up from foot board and should press down more, I would Hope anyway?!  Better tractors have two bigger pedals, not this rocker type one.  Also, I have to push this button on dash each time I reverse with mower on to keep from killing engine. PIA, but got used to it. Don't have to hold it, but DO have to press to back up.

glGrumpy..Thanks for your Honest Reply!

I Honestly Believe its a Engineer's Mistake in the Beginning...Lol
No Matter How you look at a it!

I Removed the Plastic Heal Pedal and Installed a 3/4" steel spacer inside it, to raise it up.
Now you don't have to Push it down so Hard to get it to Move....WORKS PERFECT!!
............( Problem Solved! )..............Laugh-My-A**-Off!! :)

There should be a ( Recall ) on these Mowers! Someone could get stuck out in the Rain, because they can't Back-Up to get out of the way of a Family of Chipmunk's.
