I took the snapper over to the neighbors to mow her lawn and didnt even make it once across the yard and it stopped moving. I thoought maybe it was the belts to the hydro but they are tight It still lifts the deck up and down but will not move forward or reverse. WHAT WENT WRONG?????? HOW DO I FIX IT????

Might be a simple pin on the hydro linkage that came out.  Mine fell out last year or so and did the same thing.  Look under the right side of tractor & see if the shift linkage has come loose from the hydro's rock-shaft or the pedal.  Hope it's that simple!

Sometimes we all overlook the easy stuff.....did you make sure the hi-lo didn't slip to neutral?
