Been running great, backed out of the shed today. Let run a couple of minutes then started to back up. Jolted backwards and I stopped it with the brake pedal. Now it won't move either direction. The lever moves freely in both directions but it does not move. Wonder what happened?

Check the fluid level. Check out any shear keys or pins. Find the parts manual to locate any possible pins. Good Luck, Rick

I will assume this is hydrostatic and ask if you have checked the linkage? That is as far as I will go I am sure someone with knowledge of your tractor will be along soon.

It is a hydro. Eaton M11 hydro and a Peerlesss 2560 transaxle. Sounds like you have air in the system. Replace fluid with 20 wt motor oil. Could also be a stuck blow-off valve, or a bad seal. Are you sure the hydro is pumping? Could have sheared the woodruff key....

2 spd rear and it bounced out of position and is now in Neutral? Move back/forth to make sure it is going into the range selected, some times takes a good pull or push on lever/handle to get it in gear.

My 4041 has a three speed rear and I forget or accidentally get it in neutral every now and then.

Glad it was an easy fix.

just to be aware, these machines can be bad for wearing out the splines on the input shaft of the hydro pump.
