My 135 Diesel engine runs great but the tractor won't move.
When you start the tractor it runs fine with the clutch engaged.
However, as soon as you drop the clutch, the tractor bogs
down and quits. Any thoughts or advice appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,
Do you think the tranny may be stuck between gears? Ed Will

Thanks for the quick response. Doesn't appear to be stuck between gears. When you drop the clutch it nudges forward if in forward gear or back if in reverse. Its like wheels are locked up and it cant move. I checked the brakes and they are mot locked as I was able to tow it in neutral. When this happened I was driving along with box blade up. All the sudden the blade dropped and she wouldn't move. I took the blade off thinking the hydraulics had failed and would be able to drive off. However when I took the blade off, it still wouldn't move. So bottom line is hydraulics won't come up and tractor won't
budge. Thanks.

I'm sitting here, trying to piece this one together. The hydraulics fail, tractor locks up.
But the tractor is still towable when in neutral.
So I'd assume that a failed part has not dropped down from the lift(hitch) cover into the crownwheel/pinion, causing the drive train in the rear-end to lock up?
Before your problem occurred, did the hydraulics "drop like a stone" when the engine was shut down, if left in the raised position? Or did they suffer only slow creep?
When you start the tractor in neutral and engage the PTO, does the shaft still turn?
Let us know,
regards, Evan.

Thanks for the thoughts/?'s. not sure about your first ? On something dropping. Before this happened, the lift would drop slowly - by the time I would shut down the engine and walk around the tractor, the lift would be down. Not sure about the PTO working. I didn't check it. The guy I bought the tractor from has taken it to his garage and is taking a look at it. I'll let you know what the final outcome is. Thanks.

Just a shot in the dark, the coupler in the transmission broke?

Problem solved. It wasn't cheap but the tractor is fixed. The previous owner did the repair for me and graciously split the cost given the recent purchase. The problem was caused by a broken dipstick that wedged in the gears. The owner told me that when he purchased the tractor it didn't have a dipstick and he had to replace it. Turns out the original dipstick had been floating around in the oil pan for sometime. It was waiting for me to purchase the tractor. Ended up being a big job to tear it down and find the problem. Thanks to all you responded to this post. Take care.
