Snapper rider won't move

I have a 1995 Snapper model LT155H42BBV. It will move slowly foreward but not backward. I checked the oil level in hydrostatic unit & it was OK. It also will NOT roll with lever in the "roll" position, but WILL roll with lever in the "engaged" position. Any help would be great.

Thanks, Bill

I'd take a look at the brake lever/pins/disc assembly on the right hand side and see if it's hanging up.

BTW, Can't be too big a fool since you came here looking for help !

I'm not firmillier with the snapper rider, but you may have broke your throttle cable

The throttle cable wouldn't have any effect on this problem.

I agree, check to be sure the brake isn't hanging and the belt is tight.
