The mower will not run at full speed.

You didn't indicate what model of tractor you have but most likely it is a hydrostatic drive. Theis means the power is transfered from the engine to the wheels by hydraulic pressure. If the fluid level (hydraulic oil) is low then it won't drive correctly. Follow the owners manual to check the fluid level. The other possibility is if this is an older unit it could actually have water in the oil.The water will not operate correctly. Where did the water come from? The transmission housing, is vented to atmosphere. On a hot humid day, while you're driving, the fluid and housing is heated. When the tractor cools, the ambient humid air enters the housing. When night rolls aroound the water condensing inside the housing. If you're lucky this transaxle may have a drain plug in the bottom. You can remove this and see if the oil looks milky. If it does, I'd drain it all and refill with fresh oil.

Why would a riding mower have the blade turning slow?


If speed varies depending on how much grass you are cutting, look for loose or badly worn belt. If constant slow speed when engine is running at full noise can only be a slipping on pulley or clutch. Most likely clutch. Normally slipping generates much heat so look to your clutch or pulleys. If drive key has separated there will be damage to shaft with metal dust showing.

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.

Husqvarna too slow when mowing


Some self-propelled mowers include a speed control, but sometimes it may seem that no matter how you adjust it, the mower just creeps along at a snail's pace. Most likely this isn't a mechanical malfunction, but an adjustment is probably needed.

Very tall or thick grass can bog down a self-propelled mower, but adjusting the height of the blade may allow it to roll through and cut the grass at normal speeds. If the blade is low, the amount of cutting required may slow down the movement of the entire mower. The frame of the mower may also stick in the high grass. Raise the blade little by little until the mower rolls at the appropriate speed. Going up hills may cause a similar response.

It's possible the drive belt on the mower can slip. Inspect this part to see if it is loose or cracked, and replace the belt to restore power.

Tractor runs great seems that transmission is slipping and will not pull a small hill and tires do not spin


Auto transmission? Check the fluid level.

Manual shift? Check the condition of the belt and the tension on the belt.

Lack of power after running for 15-20 minutes.


It sounds as though the ground travel belt (Drive belt) is slipping, you didn't mention the engine was bogging down so that is what comes to mind first. adjust the tension or replace the belt and if it is slipping that will remedy the issue.
