When the engine feels a little bit of torque requirement or additional power at any time, it will look for additional fuel.
check your fuel filters.
Some models of mowers have a silt screen in the tank. If that gets covered with rust and other such debris, you can also have a starving for fuel situation.

It depends on your interpritation of a hill, most manufacturers will only recommend a maximum 15 degrees due to the risk of tipping the machine over.

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.

Our 24 HP Craftsman mower won't go uphill...whats wrong?


Excessive slip under load, such as climbing a hill, is usually a worn belt. It is slipping too much with the extra load of verticle movement. Replacing the main drive belt should get the mower back to original levels of power and therefore back up the hill.
