Customer Question
I have a john deere...
I have a john deere 855. The rear left wheel is sticking. When I try to go up hills it really works hard and bogs down. It especially slows me down when mowing. It is a hydro unit . Any suggestions? I will check the pressure relief valve today. Could it be a brake issue?

Curtis B. :

I assume this is the 855 compact tractor! It has internal disc brakes. Is the brake fully returning on the left side? remove the linkage on the left side and see if it is hanging. It may not be returning, letting the brake drag.

# XXXXX lever is the brake lever you need to check.
