Hi there, we just ran across your post, and wanted to weigh in. First of all, we strongly suggest mowing across any incline, not up and down. That being said, there are a couple of possibilities for the hesitation. It may just be a belt slipping. If that possibility is ruled out, it may just take a moment for the hydro to catch. Occasionally if you are going downhill at a high rate of speed and pull the levers back quickly, that can happen. The last possibility is the potential for a bad hydro. We suggest checking the belt and adjusting the speed of the machine and if this does not help, please see your local dealer for further inspection.
