Mower runs good and fast on level ground just about comes to a complete stop on incline.Why?

The tractor runs what appears to be full speed on level ground however when I went to go up an incline /hill the tractor just about came to a complete stop. This particular incline is the same one this tractor has been handling just fine since i bought it 3 years ago . What would the problem be ?

SOURCE: troy built lawn mower (riding) won't go full

I did not know riding mower had a gas pedal. I know if you leave the throttle control up all the way the engine will choke out. The pedal you are pushing, I think, is the forward/reverse hydrostatic transmission. You may need a new drive belt. The one you have now may be stretched out.
Good Day.

These inexpensive mowers are not made for large scale mowing. They're set to run as fast as they do and have low compression (read that as low power also) to make them easy to start and operate. About the only thing you can do to make it work better is keep the air cleaner clean, use fresh gas and keep the blade sharp so it cuts the grass easier. Mowing more often also means less cuttings under the deck so it works more efficently.

The linkage on the top of the carb should go to a spring loaded arm that goes into the side of the motor. Work the lever back and forth and see if it works the carb. If it does and everything is in place your governor mechanism inside the engine might be damaged.

If the arm isnt working the carb it is probably bound up or attached to the wrong hole in the carbs throttle lever. There should be two holes and one of them would force the throttle wide open everytime reguardless of what the governor arm tries to do.

you sure your engine isn't surging... you would see it at lower speeds... my motorcycle surges at a certain rpm due to fuel ratio's at the one speed ( running lean )... so what i am saying is, could it be that the engine surge only shows itself at a certain ground speed.

or is it because of a hydro system pressure relief valve ???

you need to call a dealer and get a price to replace the transmission. perhaps you can swap yours for a rebuilt tranny. If you are at all mechanical, you can change the transmission yourself in an afternoon, so some cost could be saved on labor.

When engaging mower blades speed drops or stops


Check throttle cable at carb and make sure you have full travel. Sounds like rpm is little to low. Throttle cables are usually held in place with 1 screw and a washer. Put cable at full throttle loosen screwand pull back until throttle at carb in at full then tighten screw.

I have a yardman 46 in cut riding mower, it is leaving grass in the middle. I have put new blades, change the belts, put on a new tention spring, so what is my problem?


Well one of the spindle assemblies, could be running a little slower on one side then the other. But I would take a guess that you are trying to cut grass, way too fast for the mower. Try running a ground speed a liitle slower and see what happens.
Good Day.

I have a 19hp craftsman 42 deck. It has two blades. It does not cut the grass in the center. It leaves a strip uncut. What adjustment should I do


You may be running too fast on ground speed for the mower deck to cut completely. It may be time for some new blades. The blades may be worn down to where they are shorter than when they were first put on.

sorry. I don't have an ansewer for you however I might have some helpful hints. Your mower should be going dam near 5 MPH. But yes can't cut in reverse. you have a belt going from the trans axle to the motor. It could be slapping against the frame. The idler puller or the tension pulley could be wobaly where the bearings are gone out. If you remove the 4 bolts on the back of the mower under the seat and gas tank it should visable tell you the story. My question is mine hits gears real hard as if trans mission needs oil or internal damage.
