1 Answer

I have the same ,Sears Kohler tractor won't pull uphill

It starts out good but but get increasingly less pull like a tranmission is slipping the longer I mow.. I did not think it was belt driven as it has the hydro transmission,, It does seem to have something to do with heating up cause it has pretty good pull starting out.

Have you checked the fluid level in the hydro trans, there is a drive belt from the engine to the hydro trans check and make sure that this is not worn or loose. Make sure that when you check the tension of this belt that you do not have the engine running or the parking brake set, since tension will be released from the belt when parking brake is applied. good Luck

I have a Sears 42" deck mower. It keeps stalling. Sometimes uphill but also on level ground. Gas in filter is present yet just shuts down. What could this problem be?


Most likely this is a fuel pump problem or a float problem in the carburetor. Most carburetors can be cleaned and rebuild but most owners will not
have the proper equipment to do a thorough job. Take it to a good
servicing dealer for his advice and estimate. Sometimes there is a
gasket or a valve problem and a good experience mechanic can
tell a lot by just listening to the engine for a few seconds.
