Hi, my name is ***** *****'re having trouble today.I will do my best to assist you in resolving your issue.

Sorry for delay.

When you notice power loss does engine bog down or engine RPM get lower?

When is last time you changed fuel filter?

How many years have you been using mower? (How OLD)

Let me know
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The engine is running fine the mower simply will not go up the slightest incline. The cutting deck is running ok. Suspect the transmission.

Thanks for info steve.

Before condeming drive unit I would change belts.
Just because belts aren't smoking does not mean they can't be slipping and you have play in drive belt.
That belt should be tight.

If belts don't fix then we can get into trans but I think belts will fix issue.

Thanks
