Hi,your machine is probably a hydro static drive & needs the oil changed in the transmission.
But the pump that pushes the oil around inside it is probably to far gone for repair.
I am not sure about this machine but we have had a simlar problem with a rideon this summer.
It has one pedal that you push forward for forward movement & rearwards to go backwards.
We were able to get a new drive pump for the transmission but it was expensive, most of these machines have nearly the same transmissions so getting the parts should be no problem.
Also we do know is that there are some machines with oil emersed discs inside (like wet type clutches) these also need regular oil changes & can burn out without oil. (Bronze plated disc)
You would need to find the name plate on the transmission & there should also be model & serial no on the casing.
Once you have these details you should be able to find transmission parts lists online.

I have seen dull blades, blades not installed right and an un-level deck cause that.

Hope this helps.

Check air filter, replace if needed.
Check engine oil level and condition. Add/change as needed.
Check spark plug. Clean and re-gap if needed (.030 gap)
Drain the fuel and replace with fresh premium grade gasoline. If your local station has a notice on the pump regarding Ethanol content, drive to another station!

Most owner's manuals specify 89 octane or higher and most warranties become void if E85 fuel is used.

And finally, Oxygenated fuels are not your mower's best friend. :-)

Hope this helps.

the only way to fix it is fit the right blades
they have fitted the wrong blade's to it,,,
the blades should overlap when cutting the grass they cannot crash into each other as there are (timed up) not to do that the new blades they fitted are to short so you have no over lap on the gutters that leaves a strip of grass left uncut between the blades,,
call them out to put this stupid mistake right,,,

Ride on mower not picking up grass


Check your blades, if the "wings" are missing from the blades there is not sufficient airflow to move the grass. If they are good, clean from beneath the deck.

Wierd grass catcher problem


There are a couple of causes for this. Is the blade height the same on the new mower? Higher blade height could cause a lot of the grass to be blown out from under the deck, and not into the catcher chute.

On the trailing edge of the mower blades is a small 'wing' for lack of a better term. There are two types of blades, mulching blades that have a lower 'wing', while catcher blades that have a slightly higher 'wing' but it makes a difference.

If the season has been hot lately, the grass may not be growing as fast, hence less clippings, and less dense grass could also cause this.

Poulan Pro 22" does not mulch!


When you mulch you can only cut 1/3 of the grass off. If the grass is 3" high you can only cut 1" off.If you are cutting more grass of than you are leaving there is no place to hide the clippings.A general rule is if you notice clippings and clumps beginning to lay set the mower up one notch at a time until the clippings are hardly noticeable.If you like a real low cut then mulching is probably not for you,you will probably want to bag the grass instead.Hope this helps.
