Default Need more hydro knowledge/possible problem

Hello everyone. I understand that the old IH Cub Cadets with hydro trannys cannot be rolled unless the engine is running. I know that modern lawn tractors/mowers with hydrostatic transmissions have an override pin at the rear. I have a Cub Cadet LT1042 that I’m working on right now. I pulled out the override pin as instructed but the tires go different directions, sort of like some driving vehicles. So it can’t really be pushed. I believe it to be from around the year 2010. Is this a problem or is it normal? I have little knowledge on hydrostatic transmissions so ANY advice or help is appreciated. Thank you!

Not true. The Owners Manual outlines the procedure.

If the rear end is jacked up, this is "normal" for the tires to rotate in an opposite direction.

They did go the opposite directions when I had it jacked up which is normal now I know. But they still go the opposite direction when it’s on the ground which doesn’t seem right as that makes it really hard to move still.

The "pin" which you refer to in your first post operates a lever (bypass arm) located on the side of the transaxle.
When the bypass arm is operated it releases the hydro.
I would check to see that the pin is securely connected to the bypass arm and that the bypass arm has full travel. (i.e. not restricted by crud, dirt, grass etc.)

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
