Question about Garden
I have a Honda 2218. It seems to lose drive after 20-30 minutes. Suspect hydrostatic. Also seems to have beter drive depending on which slope I am on. If the left hand side of the mower is downhill it is worse than if the right hand side is lower. It has only 300 hours on it. All belts and pulleys replaced. I suspect the oil level but can this be topped up. No obvious leeks. Thanks

There's a couple of things that could be causing this. First, make sure the idler pulleys and blade pulleys spin freely. Second make sure the belt is behind the belt keepers on the two idler pulleys. There is only one on the left idler, but TWO on the right idler. I suspect that is your problem. Anyway, once the belt is on, engage the blades, with engine OFF, and inspect the belt routing, making sure it's not over or under something it shouldn't be.

That will show you the routing and belt number.

The engine wont have an impact with the deck because its belt driven. It sure sounds like you have a bad set of spindle bearings,just turning it by hand you wont hear any noise it has to be going fast to hear it. The noise may be coming from your clutch instead of the deck,and it sounds like the deck. Have these things checked out.
