Belt drives are reverse assist. You still have to pull them to get them to back up.

If its slipping on in forward gears, sounds like you either need some new belts or some adjusting.

there is a tensioner pulley located between the trans and engine all it needs is to be slid to the left and tighten up a bit, and as for reverse as stated revs is only assist

I don't even know how I ended up in the tractor forum. I seen this on page one, gave a reply, then noticed the OP was from months ago and I was in the tractor forum!

I kinda felt like an idiot till other people posted!! Now we're all in this together! Just a bunch of idiots in the tractor forum talking about a belt drive walkbehind.
