Nice tractor,there is a manual section here that might have what you need,I'm guessing that's a shifter under the steering wheel, very cool

That's different!  Little diff way to shift it looks like!  Bet you'll be measuring belts with ropes around pulleys on that one, not much info I"m betting.

I'm thinking loose belt, a slipping belt will get hot quick, check belt tension engaged, make sure enough pressure is being applied( a weak spring, limited movement or belt a touch long),if engaging at top of pedal belt is loose, if engaging at 3/4 pedal not enough pressure, it is normal for pulleys to heat with use but with a light load (not working hard) this should take a lot longer than 5min.s
