|Ric||The mower is about 5 years old. It sounds like the drive is groaning when on an incline, also like the mower does not have the speed it used to. Do not have manual. What can I check out on the thing before I take it to service???
|John||There should be a fluid resivoir on the trans. Check the fluid level first. There also may be a fluid filter that may be blocked too. An automatic trans on tractors uses a hydraulic pump similar to that of a cars power steering and when low on fluid will make a loud noise and also perform poorly.
As far as your manual, sears can get you one if you supply them with the model number which should be located on the rear fender under the seat. I would advise getting one because they give you a complete parts breakdown and also supply you with part numbers for almost every part on the tractor which really helps when you need to replace belts etc. I have a sears garden tractor and needed to replace a drive belt. I called sears and they quoted me 45.00. I called my local NAPA and gave them the part number from the manual and saved about 15.00
|Jeff||I just wanted to let everyone know I had the same exact problem with my 19HP Craftsman with Hydrostatic drive. A Sears mechanic came to the house and checked it out. He said we would need a new transaxle at a cost of over $1000. Over the past month I took the transaxle off and tore it apart checking gears and checking oil but everything was fine. Well today I fixed the problem myself.
After I put it all back together, I went to my front yard which has a small incline to test and make sure I put it together correctly when sure enough it still could not clime the smallest incline. I then by dumb luck pressed on the drive lever to make sure it was all the way in gear, as I pushed harder I started climbing the hill. I went back to the garage and adjusted the link from the drive lever and the transaxle. I turned the link five times to make the link longer so when you put it into forward gear it puts more pressure on the lever and what do you know.... I not only can clime my little incline but my neighbors hill which is steep enough to almost fall off the back. I hope this helps others in the future with the same problem.
Good luck guys,
