Bought a JD LT155 a year ago, really like it, what I noticed today was it almost wouldn,t pull its self up out of a small roadside ditch in reverse, no spinning or anything. Later noticed it a little sluggish going foreward. How do I check transmission oil and/or change it and filter. I do have a manuel but can,t fnd it right now.

Thanks Guys I did stop a the Deere shop and talked to service tech. He said to try belt first, and that if it were in the shop he would check oil and filter, but didn't think that was problem.

Had the same problems, replaced the drive belt and the drive pulley on the engine. Like a new mower now. chris

Assuming this is a hydro I would check the traction drive belt first, it"s the one above deck that runs from engine pulley to the top of the transmission pulley. There"s a belt and 3 idlers, I recommend replacing the idlers too if you replace the belt, they are usually made of plastic and are usually worn out. As far as the transmission goes they are sealed for life and there is not much you can do to them within reason. I have added oil to ones that had major leaks, to buy a little more time. If there are no major leaks the transmission should be ok.

Technically it"s a sealed unit that shouldn"t require servicing. But it you want to risk it, verify that it is a K51 by Tuff-Torq and look at this:

All these conditions can be signals that your unit is in need of a tune up. Ok, so what is involved in a tune up? You say, swap plugs and file the points....now tha ... [Read Article]
