    won't drive

    I am new to the forum.
    My 1050 doesn't want to drive forward. As it moves about half wheel rotation it tries to " seize ".
    In reverse it doesn't appear to have any issues.
    Also problem is " more apparent " in 2wd than in 4wd ?
    I have tractor off ground. Front wheels spin easily, just a little gear noise
    Rear tires ( in 2wd ) turn as if have a " high spot ", in 4wd mode they turn more easily. That makes no sense
    When driving it in 2wd ( forward ) it makes pop then rotates but it's hard to identify where the noise is coming from
    So in summary, will drive in reverse but not forward
    Help !

    Sounds like the brakes are dragging.

    Do the brake pedals go back up All the way after pressing them?
    Follow the linkage and see that everything is moving in both directions.

    Thanks Duke !
    The brake pedals / links all look nominal
    Wouldn't the brakes drag in the reverse direction ( also ) ?

    It FEELS like " something binds up ", then releases for a part of a rotation ( in forward )
    I'm going to pull the driveline sleeves to the front and see if I've got some ball bearing issues

    You should have Drum type brakes..... TractorData.com John Deere 1050 tractor information

    Sounds like maybe a shoe has come loose?

    Is the parking brake dissengaging properly?

    Can you Isolate the issue to one back wheel or is it Both rear wheels?


    A bit of reading here & there it seems its not too difficult to inspect the Brakes on your 1050.

    Totally different than my 955 .

    Thats all I can offer

    A busted / dislodged brake shoe could turn easily in reverse but bind up going forward, I would agree with The Duke to start there. It would be hard to imagine it would be something in the driveline doing that. (At least I would hope not).

    I’ve seen in cars where a brake shoe becomes stuck to the drum from sitting, and then the first time the car gets moved the shoe breaks loose from the backing plate and binds up in the drum.
