Why does my zero turn model 7000 mower not move forward or backward?

It is a Craftsman ZT 7000 rear engine rider mower, model 107.277700.
The engine runs fine but the mower will not move. There is something wrong with the hydraulics. It looks like it is low on fluid.

There are 2 reservoirs for oil for the hydro transaxles on your mower. The reservoirs should be filled to the line in each reservoir. Use 10w30 motor oil to fill the reservoirs.

If the oil in the hydro's is low look for leaks. You might have a fitting cracked or some bolts that have backed out.
