Sign of a failing hydrostatic tranny. however 3 years is pretty quick for a transmission unless mower was used commercially. make sure your drive belt is snug.

Rider loses power after mowing for 30 - 45 minutes. Gets to a point, it won't climb a small incline. Engine sounds good & the deck runs fine. Just won't go.


Hi, the hydrostatic drive is most likely over heating. Remove the battery and battery carrier, from here you can clean all grass and debris from the hydro cooling fins and fan. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Speed of tractor slows when I run for more than 10 minutes. It will not climb a small incline after it gets hot. I can let it cool for a half hour, then it runs fine untill it gets hot ,and eventuall will...


you need to call a dealer and get a price to replace the transmission. perhaps you can swap yours for a rebuilt tranny. If you are at all mechanical, you can change the transmission yourself in an afternoon, so some cost could be saved on labor.

Our 24 HP Craftsman mower won't go uphill...whats wrong?


Excessive slip under load, such as climbing a hill, is usually a worn belt. It is slipping too much with the extra load of verticle movement. Replacing the main drive belt should get the mower back to original levels of power and therefore back up the hill.

My craftsman mower with a 26 hp kohler dies when choke is in


carb dirty, jets partially plugged, float sticking. Not so uncommon problem and is caused by the fuel left in the carb over the winter gumming up (going bad). You can attempt to clean this on your own if you are somewhat mechanically inclined. Search small engine repair and it will give you a generic breakdown of the parts in a small engine carb. If not the, to have someone overhaul a small engine carb will run you about $120 including parts (at least around VA).

Craftsman garden tractor engine stalls after running for about 20 minutes or climbing a grade


it maybe over heating check fins on sides of motor and clean if needs, another cuase is dirt fuel filter, open gas tank and look to see if there are things or dark spots on bottom of tank, is yes drain clean and flush fuel lines with wd40 change fuel filter if equiped, sediment will settle and inclines or running will move sediment and block fuel flow. when stopped they settle and will run again for time
