Customer Question

i have a cub cadet zero turn tractor 1050. I am having problems when i turn right. It barely wants to turn. when I straighten out it gets back up to speed. It practically creeps along when turning right. the engine is sound it does not sound bogged down it just doesnt want to turn . and when mowing my ditch which is only about a 3 ft ditch it barely makes it up the hill when going straight. any suggestions?

You have a single belt for both left and right transmissions. Have you checked the belt or replaced it? When going straight , both transmissions are equal, so if both act up, the belt is the common factor.
