Re: HRX 217 wheels locked when pulled backwards
I have a Honda mower that does that, too. I saw a few videos on You Tube where guys show how they fixed the problem. Apparently, so models have a plastic sleeve that slides over the shaft. It gets almost bonded to the shaft.
Mine has a steel sleeve, but it still does it. The other thing is the adjustment on the belt drive cable.
I have not completed my repair yet, since i just started it today.
