Recommended Posts

I have WH 516H   ID 34-160E01 

I can't push the machine even with belt of the hydro .

Is there a fix for this problem ?

Rewrote your model number 31-16OE01

This model uses the 700 Eaton transmission.

Here is the operator manual and more in case you do not have them.

I have no hydro experience.

I bought a tractor with the Eaton 700 transaxle some time back and you could not push or pull it because the rear tires wouldn't turn Quite by accident I pushed the motion control lever full forward and the tractor would roll. Give it a try.

  I only had one 700  and it would not roll.         Do not ever tow or push with another machine.    You could damage the hydro.

@Myron  , I edited your thread title to let members know what the thread was about.  You want to do that when you start a thread.  Welcome to Red Square.  :occasion-xmas:

The 700 I ran was also stubborn about rolling. As noted, experiment with different positions of the motion control lever. With mine, mostly forward worked best for pushing in both directions but YMMV.

Good luck.

When I bought mine it was not running so I used car dollies to move it around

The service manual below may be helpful. Be sure the belt tensioner (part 49) is down and the motion control lever is forward when pushing. go very slowly.

Exactly what I have been looking for as far as trying to move a locked Eaton 700

Very frustrating, now if I could only find out why it won't turnover! :wacko:

Can you spin the trans drive pulley by hand, with the belt off?

:text-welcomeconfetti: to the :rs:   It would be best to start a new thread to get your questions answered.  If you post the model number, we can get the wiring diagram for your tractor and help you get it running.

Howdy Ski,

 

My 516H is impossible to move with the belt engaged and difficult with it disengaged. You'll want to make sure that disengaged is actually so - stops rubbing on the pulley. If I have just run it, mowing or whatever, it pushes much easier. The Eaton is a bit worn and runs well on 15W-50.
