Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor LT1000 6 speed manual. While driving up hill it knocks and jerks and will not make it up a hill. Could it be a drive belt? It has made the knocking noise up hills for over a year but it recently lost power going up hill. I noticed the rear drive wheel moves and quits repeatedly. It has progressively worstened the last few times mowing even on flat areas. Any thoughts?

Similar thing happened to me and it seemed to be nothing more than a completely clogged air filter. When replaced it was fine.

My craftsman tractor wont pull itself up a hill. Runs fine but just comes to a stop when trying to go up a hill. Maby the ground drive belt is slipping????


Sounds like your drive belt is slipping alright. Need to tighten your clutch rod. One end of rod adjust. Have someone help you, move the clutch petal and your helper watch and see rod moves.

Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.


Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....

Tractor has a very touchy clutch


When you change the transmission, also change the drive belt?
One of the most often cause of transmission problems are the inadequate drive belt. The length should be the same as the manufacturer specification. Also the drive belt surface quality is very important. Keep in mind that the "clutch" is a simple mechanism that depends on the slipping belt feature and its right lenght. Frequenty users cange the belt and use an automotive type belt.

Let me know some news about your problem.
Have a grat day!
