i got a kohler, scotts, john deer s2554 mower and yesterday my son was driving it and found out you can pop a wheele with it :duh: and i think the rear axle is broke or the driveshaft (If there is one). ok so the symptoms are it runs when you hit the gas it doesnt move unless your on a down hill otherwise if its a flat surface its to much for it to move. that about all i can think of so let me know if you have any ideas and suggestions all would be appriciated thanks!

Ps. if it gets up to speed sometimes it will drive around up or down hill

Looks like David has most of it covered. I also think the belt is probably stretched or worn out. Also check to see if the drive pulley on the transaxle has a sheared key. Friction alone there might move you a little on flat ground, but not climb hills.
