Poulan hydrostatic drive

Our model riding mower has been having a belt drive problem. It keeps slipping off. Bought new belt still slips off. Looking at lay out off pulleys looks like we are missing one that would definetly add more tension. So, we like to know how to get one if we need it?

Drive belt broken or slipped of pulleys, hydrostatic drive filter(s) plugged. Should be one or those, Roger. Follow the drivebelt with your hand (disconnect battery to be safe) and see if it hasn't slipped off the engine drive pulley, idler pulleys, or axle pulley. If you tractor is hydrostat, may be time to replace filter.

My MTD 12.5 hp briggs and stratton ride on mower is losing forward speed as though a clutch is slipping especially going up hills or slopes. MIKE


You didn't indicate what model so I don't know if it is hydrostatic drive or not. If it is not hydrostatic drive, it is most likely a worn belt or clutch adjustment. If you don't have your manual you can download one here:http://www.mtdlawnmowerparts.com/manuals.php
If it is hydrostatic drive it stil could be the drive belt or low water in hydrostatic transmission, or even water in the oil in the hydrostatic transmission. Always list model number when asking questions.
