Whats the model and serial number of your rider?

Many MTD products have (2) drive belts that operate a variable speed drive setup, either one of the belts can cause a problem, the variable speed drive pulley or perhaps the parking brake could be causing a problem. There may also be a problem with the transmission or differential, if either one of the wheels is loose on the axle (sheared key or missing) it also will not move.
