Question about Garden
My John Deere 260 lawn tractor has trouble accelerating and loses significant power in higher gears. In 4th, 5th or 6th gear it can't climb the slightest incline. It also accelerates very slowly in those gears even on level ground. Is this a clutch or a belt issue? Any suggestions to fix? Thanks!
Mine did the exact same thing. It was the drive belt. Take the deck off, loosen the belt shield on the clutch pulleys (under the frame below the seat) and take the old belt off. You will have to disconnect the wiring to the electric clutch, route the belt over the motor pulley and through the clutch pulleys... and over the transmission pulley. It took me about an hour... not bad to do. It will be easier to jack up the front of the tractor so you can get under it easier.
