I have a 1500 series hydrostatic SLT 1554 - 54" cut, it really bogs down when it gets into high and/or thick grass, especially on lower deck settings, is the hydrostaic transmission done?

Put a new deck belt on it, didnt change a thing. it does ok on high deck settings

Sounds like it's just overloaded. I would sharpen the blades to make cutting easier, ( that really helped with mine ). Good Luck .

My cub cadet riding mower is bogging down when grass gets a little thick


Inspect the under side of the deck for grass build up. You need to clean it about twice a year if you are mowing damp grass.

Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

Why does a craftsman tracor with a kohler 15.5 hp engine bogg down when engaging blades


It will initially bog down when engaging, but should pick back up shortly after. If it is staying bogged down, turn mower off and check inside (under) the deck to make sure its not clogged up with grass clippings or dirt. if it is, clean it with either a hose or a scraper. Also make sure the deck is raised when you engage (dont engage with deck lowered on long grass).

I have a Scotts 20 HP 48" deck. starts fine, runs fine but bogs down in thicker grass. This is not overly thick grass nor above 4 inches high. It also seems that the speed of the tractor is not great..


Do you have your throttle all the way up? And if so you might want to check if maybe your throttle cable might be stuck on something preventing it from rasing the throttle.

Airens Zoom 1944 ZTR Blades Slow Down In Bahaia Grass


You mention many PM issues but do not mention a blade sharpening. I don't get on my ZTR without a freshly honed blade installed. "That's" what cuts bahia grass...the blade. You can put all the horsepower you want behind the lade but if you're trying to cut grass with a 2X4 it rips more than cuts grass.
