Customer Question

I have a 2006 Swisher ZT2560 zero turn that blow the hydrostatic drive belt so I installed a new one and now when I try to go forward or reverse it moves slow and then it slowly goes slower and slower till it wont move anymore and the hydro's make a low humming sound but not a grind so I don't believe that both hydro's are bad just cant figure out why changing a belt would have done anything?
