husqvarna yth2448 tractor question ???

ok i just got in a husqvarna yth2448 tractor , i was told the motor was bad but after getting it running right i tested it and it seems like in foward when the tractor goes up a hill or has to put some effort in going foward it kinda bucks and makes a weird noise , it sounds like its coming from the rear , i used it on my neighbors yard it doesn't gring or slip but just kinda bucks , the model # is 96015000101 , it has a 24hp briggs engine and is a 48 inch cut , any advice on what to look for is greatly appreciated

manual? Sounds like either a loose belt... or hardly any grease in it.

yea bugman im hoping its something simple ,it isn't a shift on the go , but it has foward and you can increase the speed w/o shifting it , it only has foward , neutral and reverse , so its kinda a automatic , and it slips weather you are going fast or slow , i got the tractor for 300.00 and its a 1800.00 tractor , it doesn't slip like stalls it just bucks in foward and makes a noise that i believe is coming from the rear , what scares me though is that this tractor is one of the types that has that little lever thing you have to pull out on the rear of the tractor when you are moving it around by pushing it, and im starting to think that they didn't pull that lever thing to unlock the rear , because when i bought it they said " its really hard to push" so if they pushed it around w/ that lever not pulled out both back wheels will try to turn in opposite directions here is the link to the tractor http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...48T&lpage=none

This unit shows to have a hydrostatic transmsission. That is like an automatic transmsission, it is a fluid drive. Chances are the did not push it very far like that as they are very hard to push and on a small tractor like this one the rear wheels would probably just slide on the ground. Check both of the rear drive wheels and see if one of them has a sheared key, maybe the axle shaft is spinning inside one of the drive wheels.

thanks for all the advice bugman and 30yrtech ,i hope it is a simple fix , now 30yrtech, if it is a sheared key can i get them from any mower repair shop? and how hard is it pulling the wheels on one of these , i don't usually deal w/ tractors because my lack of space for them but w/ this thing only having 70 hrs on it i couldn't pass it up .

They will either have a clip or bolt on the end of the axle at each wheel, remove the clip or bolt and the wheel assy. should slide off. It should be a square key locking the rim to the axle but I am not positive for your unit. Most keys used on riding mowers on the wheels are standard hardware items but could be specific to your unit, I could not say without looking it up or looking at it.

This also may not be the problem, but I have seen it before on a handfull of riders.

normally just be a c like clip.., Key a long steel key....
If you get it off, before you put em back on, use some grease or antiseize.. etc on the axles.... boy oh boy its not fun taking a seized by rust one off later on, have one right now, pb blaster sitting a month, every week a fresh spray had done diddly...

bugman, have you ever tried an air impact hammer? I have had pretty good luck after soaking them with lube and then using the impact hammer, the vibrations are good at knocking the rust loose. Does not always work, but about 75-80% of the time it does knock them loose, I use it on rusted on blade adapters and drive pulleys also..

Nope, might......, am about to try a little heat to the situation though when I get around to it, I don't care for the rims on it, just the trans and maybe the tires....

well both wheels came off and the keys were fine , so i did figure out its not them and the bucking and slipping is coming from the rear and it is getting worse , it does not do it in reverse just foward , so its gotta be something in the rear

your rear end is hydrostatic therefore it is not run with gears it pumps fluid the more pressure the more speed if the fluid is low it will buck it is probly not bucking when you back up becuse you are going slower and you don't need as much pressure. if that doesn't work i don't know what to tell you
