By "lost power" do you mean slower travel speed? Assuming your mower doesn't have an adjustment pulley, meaning a pulley with a bolt through it you loosen and move to replace the belt and put back in place and tighten the bolt once the belts replaced. Some do and this is where you adjust the drive belt's tension. Otherwise, when you depress the clutch pedal, underneath is a pulley or pulleys mounted on moveable plate. The plate pivots one way to put slack in the belt to disengage and the other way to tighten/engage the belt. I've seen them not fully pivot which doesn't completely tighten the belt allowing belt slippage and slower speeds. Use a spray lube on the pivot point (avoid getting it on the belt) and on spots where the plate looks to have rubbed against. This should let the plate to fully pivot again which will allow the belt to completely tighten, eliminating slippage, thus producing faster travel speed.

Alko 700/620/600 mower brake problem with peerless 700 transmission

Hi, your problem is simple and is all to do with the brake you adjusted. Remove the two bolts, one either side of the brake adjuster, remove the brake assembly, remove clean and lubricate the two pins and the holes they slide in. Reassemble the brake assembly and adjust the centre nut so that the brake comes on and off. This should be about a quarter inch of travel on the short brake lever. Regards Phil.

Murray Peerless transaxle slow forward speed. Drive belt was changed and linkages where adjusted. Very slow forward and no reverse.

I think the only logical conclusion is that your hydrostatic transmission is shot. If you know the model number, I think they
are stamped on the bottom, you can look over on ebay. There are some NOS vendors over there and they may have one. There are also mower junkyards around, believe it or not, and if you can find one you may find a serviceable replacement.
