On some of the earlier John Deere units there was a relay kit (AM107421) availble to overcome this condition. I used the AM107421 kit on my 1988 160 and LT172 and it took care of the hesitation. II would check all the grounds and make sure electrical connections are clean and tight first. It looks like a similar relay kit may be available for your LT133, it may be an (AT75769), call a dealer and verify.

The contacts in the key switch have a build up from arcing (current draw) and corrosion. To extend the life of the key switch try putting in a heavy duty relay (also known as a starting improvement kit) Puts the current demand on a relay usually mounted down near the starter. Depending on how bad it has gotten you may need to replace the key switch also.
