Any way to gauge the speed of the mower?  With the pedal down it seems pretty slow.  Would this be a belt issue or a transmission issue for this model?
Thanks.

When you say the mower is slow do you mean blade speed or ground speed? If it's ground speed you can mark off feet or yards and clock it with a stopwatch with some simple math you can convert your distance traveled in time to miles per hour. Or you can drink a few beers and drive it into town after calling the police and saying that a guy is speeding on a tractor! The beers are for the embarrassment.

If it's the one with the CVT transaxle it's time for 2 new drive belts.Don't just replace the rear one.Front one gets stretched when the rear one wears down.

 

They made them with either Hydro and CVT transaxle.

 

CVT has a small shifter for forward and reverse and a pedal to move.Hydro has just a Pedal to move and backwards Or a pedal and a leaver on the left fender.

 

Snap a pic of your Model number tag and I'll look it up.Should be under the seat or on the bottom of the seat mount.

 

Tag should look something like this one on my Troy Bilt.

Belt is White Outdoor 954-0349 or 1/2" x 79"

These Red belts are Awesome.

http://www.ebay.com/...eIAAOSwAuNW4h1z That's a really good price on a Aramid Fiber Kevlar corded belt.

 

Oh wow that's identical to my 03 Troy Bilt.Same Hydro Gear 618 transaxle same drive belt,same frame part numbers.

 

 

Mine is a little slow and I know the fluid is pretty low in it.I had an axle seal leaking on it and replaced the seal but haven't put oil in it yet.They take 2 1/2 quarts of 20W-50 synthetic oil.You can use a good non detergent 30wt as a substitute.

 

Manual for the Hydro transaxle in your tractor.

It says fill it till it's visible,reinstall fill plug ( located on top of the transaxle near the back Just under the battery tray )  and purge air by 1st put the Hydro release leaver in neutral position then work the pedal back and forth 7-10 times.Return the Hydro release leaver to it's normal operating position and check the fluid level in the Fill plug.Top off if needed.

 

 

Check your fluid and fill it up if it needs and see if that helps.

Is the fill plug the hex bolt at the bottom of the photo that I can't get to budge?
Also, I don't have a gear selector, only a fwd and rev pedal.
Thanks.
