I replaced the drive belt , and the mower deck belts on my YT16H. I hoped the drive belt was slipping , making the machine weak and slow on hills. At first the new belt seemed to help a lot but the tractor still doesn't have the pulling power that it should. It is more obvious when the deck is engaged. The fluid for the trans looks very dark, almost black in the reservoir. What can I do ? Thanks.

Do you have the manual? Get the correct spec'd fluid for the hydro, get the tractor good and warmed up, and change out the fluid. It takes 1.15 quarts of SAE 20W motor oil. Then make sure the hydro is good and clean. Does the hill climbing ability change as it warms up?
