Hi there,
Sounds scary! How steep is the hill?
Could you jack up the back end of the mower and check both wheels are driving? Maybe get it running slowly and get someone to carefully try and stop each wheel from turning with some sort of friction, eg a broom. If just the left wheel is driving you could get similar symptoms to what you describe. Some mowers have a key in the axle to wheel joint - if this is the problem then maybe yours is shorn.

My craftsman tractor wont pull itself up a hill. Runs fine but just comes to a stop when trying to go up a hill. Maby the ground drive belt is slipping????


Sounds like your drive belt is slipping alright. Need to tighten your clutch rod. One end of rod adjust. Have someone help you, move the clutch petal and your helper watch and see rod moves.

Lawn mower does not like to go up small hills, is there a filter or a place to check the fluid level


It probably doesn't have a factory filter, but I feel ALL small engines should have. The only fluids to check would be the engine oil and maybe the tranmission lube in the little gearbox (if it is self propelled). I don't know how STEEP the hills you mention are, but if too steep, gas flow and oil cirulation will be affected. Try going up the hill at an angle to reduce the problem.
If there is no dipstick tube on the engine to check the oil level, then look for a little yellow cap at the bottom of the engine right above the deck. It is threaded and twists on and off the engine. I think it is made of nylon.Your oil should always be clean, never black. When it starts getting dirty, change it. Most small lawn mowers hold 20 ounces of engine oil (about 2/3 of a quart).

Hi, it sounds like the hydrostatic drive is getting too hot. Remove the battery and battery cradle and clean all grass and debris from around the hydrostatic drive and cooling fins. Also check the fan wheel on the hydro is not damaged. Regards Phil.
