John Deere LT155 Lawn Tractor has trouble going uphill

Our John Deere LT155 Lawn Tractor/Riding Mower balks and moves very slowly going uphill-either forward or reverse. I was told this has to do with the transmission belt, but it was replaced two years ago. Is this something I can fix myself, or do I need to take it to the repair shop that installed the transmission belt? Or could it be something else?

My John Deere rinding lawn mower won't go forword or backwards


John Deere mowers, for the most part, use hydrostatic transmissions. These use an oil of some type (they vary by model) in the transaxle to provide hydraulic pressure to move the tractor. Older tractors will eventually experience some oil leakage over time due to seal wear. If the level gets too low, then you fail to move. Check the oil level in the transaxle. The location of the reservoir varies from model to model. If it is low, after determining the correct oil to use, fill to proper level. Then, start the tractor and work the hydrostatic drive lever forward and backward slowly and continuously until you get full speed operations in both forward and reverse. This can take a few minutes until all the air has been purged from the system.

How do you change the drive belt on a john deere d110 riding lawn mower?


You can look at the manuel that came with the mower or if you did not get one, go to the JD mower web site and look up you model and download the needed documentation. If that is not possible contact the local JD mower dealer and get a copy of the mower deck docs and look at the instructions for belt replacement.

Hi, your problem is caused by the transmission over heating. Remove the battery and battery carrier and clean all grass and debris from the hydro cooling fins and fan. Hope this is helpful, regards Phil.

I have a John Deere LT155. When you let off of either the forward or reverse pedal the tractor comes to an abrupt stop. It will actually lock the wheels.


Hi, most likely the brakes are hanging up. Follow the brake pedal path to the rear of the mower, it is attached to a small arm on the side of the diff that is probably locked forward. This lever and the pins behind it need to be freed up so the lever operates forward and backward freely when the brakes are applied and released. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have googled LT155 and came upon john deere LT155 lawn tractor(noncurrent). It took me to John Deere's site. I put in your model number and it had several catagories. I would try the alphabetical list, go to B and look for traction belt.
Good day.
