Clunking sound when the lawn mower is trying to slow itself down, especially going down hill.

when your mower is on an incline the oil in the crankcase flows to either side depending the angle, I would recommend checking oil levels, clunking sounds are usually metal on metal, also never mow on an incline without thinking about mower damage. skip hills if at all possible., check fluid levels, check spark plug for gummed up residue , check gas line filter for water.

Hi there,
Sounds scary! How steep is the hill?
Could you jack up the back end of the mower and check both wheels are driving? Maybe get it running slowly and get someone to carefully try and stop each wheel from turning with some sort of friction, eg a broom. If just the left wheel is driving you could get similar symptoms to what you describe. Some mowers have a key in the axle to wheel joint - if this is the problem then maybe yours is shorn.

Lawn mower makes noise, rattle, scraping, and the speed slows down, especially under stress

Try spraying the belt with a belt dressing aerosol. You can get this at an autozone or other parts house. New belts sometime's take a little time to wear into the groves an old belt creates.

X520 jd mower trouble

Sounds like a problem with the governor. Start it up. Don't engage the blades. Drive to a hill. Idle all the way down. Try driving up the hill. The motor should pick up when it slows while pulling up the hill. If it doesn't, the governor isn't working right.

Husqvarna too slow when mowing

Some self-propelled mowers include a speed control, but sometimes it may seem that no matter how you adjust it, the mower just creeps along at a snail's pace. Most likely this isn't a mechanical malfunction, but an adjustment is probably needed.

Very tall or thick grass can bog down a self-propelled mower, but adjusting the height of the blade may allow it to roll through and cut the grass at normal speeds. If the blade is low, the amount of cutting required may slow down the movement of the entire mower. The frame of the mower may also stick in the high grass. Raise the blade little by little until the mower rolls at the appropriate speed. Going up hills may cause a similar response.

It's possible the drive belt on the mower can slip. Inspect this part to see if it is loose or cracked, and replace the belt to restore power.
