It seemed to be faster when I first bought it. It had 170 hours on it and in great shape. it now has 257 hours. Looks new. I am frustrated. I always have worked on my equipment keeping it very well maintained.

Have you noticed any oil leaks on your transmission? Check to make sure the control lever on your transmission is shifting fully into forward and reverse positions. We can continue from here.
