Husqvarna LGT2654 Forward = Slower; Reverse = Nonexistent
I have a 2012 Husqvarna LGT2654 that I bought new 7 years ago. Within the last year or so it has really lost speed. I've tried following the manufactures recommendations on purging the transmission with only temporary success. After mowing for about 45 mins, reverse is pretty much non-existent. I eventually just make a wide u-turn to make my next pass. It really struggles when I pull my aerator with only a 35 lb weight. I had to add bracket mounts to the frame on the transmission because the welds busted which I guess is pretty common for this tractor. Also replaced the mounting bracket on the front side of the transmission.
Just recently bought a Cub Cadet Ultima ZT1 54. I plan to use the Husqvarna for towing my roller, aerator, snow blower attachment, and general wagon use. If I can't get this speed problem fixed, then it's pretty much just going to be a paper weight. Looking forward to hear from the experts! Thanks!
