My relatively new Honda lawnmower has become hard to push.

Customer Question

My relatively new Honda lawnmower has become hard to push. It has self propelling capabilities, but on flat surfaces, I shouldn't have to use it. How can I fix this problem?
I bought it two or three years ago for about $400 from Home Depot. Hopefully you can determine the model from that price range.

I would suspect that if the mower is 2-3 years old, the drive belt may need to be replaced. Check to make sure it is on the pulleys and also checkthat the gears on the wheels are not stripped
