I would say,that the Motion Drive Belt,has stretched to the point,that it is slipping on the pulleys. Over time all belts stretch or break. There is no adjustment,that can be made,once stretched,its time for a new belt. Look in your Owner's Manual,to see,a picture and directions of how to remove and replace a motion drive belt. If there isn't a picture of the drive belt in your manual,then look under the left foot rest. There you will find a decal,showing the correct method to install the belt over the pulleys. This is going to be a long belt,it runs from the Transaxle to the motor's upper pulley assembly. You can,it will be hard to do,remove and replace the drive belt with the mower deck attached. First,try lowering the mower deck,to the lowest position. This will give some room,to get to the motion belt,you will have to remove the mower belt,to get to the motion belt. I find it is easier to just remove the mower deck entirely. Doing this,give you ample room to work on the motion belt. The mower belt,can be purchased from Sears Parts Direct. Give them the tractor's Model Number and the Belt Part #,if you have the number,they will look it up anyway,if not. I gave more information,than you asked for. I hope this will help you.

New tractor power loss on a grade, deos not develop full speed


Hello Joe

If you have an automatic or hydrostatic transmission then you have a lemon, which means once the oil heats up in your transmission it thins out and clutchs and swash plate have no grip on the drive system which is hydraulic pressure needed to hold on the shaft and axles this happens all inside the transmission you cant see it but you can tell when going up slight hills and when you have the blades engaged it crawls like a turtle get you warranty out Joe..... dont touch anything that may void your warranty..... just call service department they will send service man out to your home even after that keep a good eye on your tractor since its still under waranty for further problems.

Joe your 20 year old craftsman had a better built ****** by sears and you probably had a 6 speed or five speed even hydostatics were good too,they dont have much problems except belt slipping its an easy fix this new tractor u need service man right away.

Ride on mower drive problem


sounds like a belt to me not tight enough against the pullys

Clutch vibration and jerking at slow speeds.


Check the drive belt. It probably has chunks missing or at least has flat spots (narrow spots) that cause the belt to jump every time it goes around a pulley. That will set up a heck of a vibration. Also check the pulleys for free movement. The drive belt is above the blade drive belt....

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps
