Welcome to the forum. Check the manuals section for your tractor. I'm not experienced with them. A couple of generic hydrostat problems are that there is usually something to allow a hydrostat to be pushed by hand. If it pushes easy, look into how it works on your tractor. There is usually a foot pedal that releases the hydro that nobody uses and it gets pushed and sticks. Check fluids? Pump Drive?? How did the problem come about ? Any history on the problem or did you buy it this way? Hope somebody that knows something comes along and helps.

Welcome to GTTalk. . Most hydrostatic tractors have some sort of bypass valve that you activate so that you can push the tractor. If it's easy to push then that is a clue that something is disconnected mechanically or it is bypassed. If that isn't the problem I would also check the linkage from the travel speed control to the transmission and the drive to the transmission as well as the axle shaft keys which can shear off resulting in no drive.
