Hydrostat slips going up hilland you have to keep feathering the pedal to get it to engage


When you say Hydrostat, I automatically think lawn tractop. If this is correct, then the reason it is slipping and just won't go is that your main drive belt is worn and slipping and won't pull. Replace the main drive belt and make sure the belt tensioner is fine and your done.

Dixon 5020 mowerhow do i install drive belt on 5020 dixon


If, and I'm sure it is, like all other riders, remove the deck, turn the mower up on it's side and supported with a lawn chair or the like, it won't hurt the mower, remove the electric deck drive unit from the crankshaft by taking the center bolt out and pull it off, remove the clutch tensioner far enough to get the belt off it, then remove the belt from the motor pully and the hydrostat drive pully and pull the belt out towards the front. replace the belt with new one and put it back together.

Will run but doesn't move


If it doesn't move at all; I would check the drive belt first, then the belt idler pulleys. Just make sure that no one has put the hydro units in bypass mode so they could move the mower without the engine running without your knowledge..

How to replace drive belt on john deere model 345


- remove deck
- remove seat and rear fenders
- pry off deck adjusting knob
- remove F/R pedals
- remove floor plate
- use jackstands to prop up entire right side of tractor
- remove (2) screws holding fuel lines on side of frame
- lift out gas tank, set alongside left side of tractor
- remove plastic fan from hydrostat
- disconnect the electrical connector for the electric clutch
- from the top-side - use a 3/8" drive rachet - stick it into the tensioner slot next to the idler, rotate it to take tension off the belt, and remove belt off hydrostat pulley
- from underside - remove front idler (next to electric clutch)
- from underside - remove the "right-most" idler off the spring tensioner
- from underside - remove the "left-most" idler off the spring tensioner
- now the tensioner can rotate fully to take almost all the tension off the extension spring
- pop the spring off the tensioner arm
- the belt should now be able to be removed from the machine

- reinstall in the opposite fashion
- note: to reattach the spring, connect a nylon cord to the spring, and pull it rearward and guide it onto the tensioner arm - you need to stretch it about 1"
- for reattaching the two idler pulleys to the tensioner, get someone to hold the ratchet so the tensioner is positioned for the belt being in it's most-loose position. You may need to wrap the new belt around the hydrostat pulley first, and assemble the last idler pulley and belt at the same time to complete the procedure.

Sold as Ranch King at Quality Farm & Fleet goes in drive very slow


I think you just need a new drive belt. This is easy to fit. Remove the seat and back cover to axcess it. The grinding noise could be the pully rubbing against the belt tentioner because the belt worn or to big. Hope this works for you.
