Hi,let's see if we can work together to get to the root of your problem! will try my best to help!

This has geared transmission and no hydrostat? Does the clutch have free travel at the top of clutch pedal travel? Clutch has to have free travel or the clutch will not fully grasp the flywheel.

Tractor will move in lower gears but slips worse in higher gears? Clutch is failing!

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Barely moves in lower gears, won't move in high gears. Sellers says clutch is a year old. Are there any adjustment or fluids?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 months ago.

Only adjustment is the free play in the clutch linkage. Figure you need a new clutch!
