Customer Question

I have a Troy Bilt X15 with a Kohler 22hp engine and a 46 inch deck. The engine itself turns on immediately. Over the last few weeks, the mower has become less and less responsive to shifting of the drive train into forward or reverse. Finally, today it doesn't respond at all. Any thoughts?

HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first thing that I would look at is the belt. As the machine gets some age and use the belt will wear and sometimes stretch, this will cause it to no longer turn the pulleys as it would when it was new therefore you progressively begin to loose speed and response until it will finally quit operating completely.
