This unfortunately is a common problem. I had the same issues. I had a professional check tension in belts, and even drain tranny fluid & replace with a heavier weight fluid as recommended on the Internet. Still have same problem. 2 solutions. 1. Replace hydrostatic motors inside the transmission. Look online for for video/instructions. 2. Replace entire transmission.

L118 JD 22 hp wont pull up 30 degree hill. Engine good . Have not changed belt. 250 hrs. Read about trany going bad. hope not. Any way to tell if its the belt or tranny?


if the belt has any cracks or missing any thing or looks bad in a spot replace it. if you are using it a lot on hills or to pull a lawn cart the belt will wear out faster. replacing the belt is cheaper than a transmission.

Hi, the most likely cause is the transmission over heating. Remove the battery and the cradle underneath the battery. Here you should be able to access the transmission. Clean all grass and debris from the cooling fins and check the cooling fan for damage. Hope this helps. Regards Phil.

The parking brake on my John Deere L118 is stuck in the activated position. Therefore the tractor won't roll. How can I disengage the parking brake?


Usually there is a red handle under the steering colunm that locks the pedal down. You will need to depress the brake as you push down on the red handle which should release it.
