Your battery is dying ... it doesn't have enough power to keep the clutch engaged. You may have a charging problem. You can check this with a volt/ohm meter.

My walker will mow for a short time but will stall if I dont turn off the blades

if it has an electric clutch to drive the blades, it is possible that the charge rate of the unit is insufficient to run the clutch and the ignition and so the battery gets to a point where the ignition suffers
have the windings of the clutch checked for resistance and failure

Mow for 30-60 min.mower shuts down. Sometimes you can mow all day.start goin up hills mower will shut down,about the second or 3rd trip.what's the problem?

Don't know what kind if engine you have but many have low oil shut down float switches inside the engine..when operating on hills or side if hills too long the oil will flow to the low side and the low oil switch will pick it up as low oil and shut it down..look for a small wire attached to the crankcase it most likely is that low oil switch..the next time this happens try disconnecting it and tape the end if the wire..try starting and run on the should not shut Down..just remember it is a safety switch to protect the engine from damage from low oil operation.try running the hills where the oil runs to the wire side of the engine..won't trick the low oil alert...Good luck..

Battery drains and won't charge

I would start by having battery tested. If u remove it and take it to auto parts store they will test it for free. It could be that the battery will not hold a charge or your tractors alt. is not putting out a charge

I need to install a new drive belt on a GT 275 Belt broke while mowing. Got new belt but it is not obvious how it goes on.

lay under the mower and look for a diagram - there should be one somewhere on the unit.

I have a 275 GT garden tractor with hydrostatic trans mission the fluid got low an would not move I bought fluid from dealership an installed fluid moved back an forth went to check level would not move is...

If the fluid was low and the mower stopped moving the hydrostatic will most likely need rebuilding or replacing. If it only started slipping changing fluid migh have saved it. You can jack up the rear with the tires off the ground and let it run in gear for a few minutes then do the same in reverse. Do this several times if it can be saved it will start pulling slowly when it does make sure it is still full of fluid let it down and drive it or mow with it. It could just be an air lock in the trans.

Have a 20 HP twin cylinder KOHLER engine on CRAFTSMAN mower.

If you are able...have someone do a compression check on the engine. Usually if a mower is loosing power and it is a twin cylinder engine, one of the headgaskets may be blown.
