I have a Deere riding lawnmower D110 and with a hydro-static

Customer Question

I have a John Deere riding lawnmower D110 and with a hydro-static transmission. I have a 45degree hill that I went to cut it's about 70 feet long. When I put the brake on going down the hill it does not stop. It's like a sled going down the hill. So I can cut the grass I put it in reverse and engage the blade and cut it that way and go forward when I need to go down the hill . The brakes work on a flat surface but not down the *****, *****gerous !!!
