Looking at a mower that pulls to one side, how do i fix it?

Yea its a John Deere, nto sure of the model number yet i will get it tomorrow. The seller says it needs a new Vee Belt but does that have anything to do with it pulling towards the side?

The model number will help those who know John Deeres by model but for those of us who don't at least tell us if it is a hydro drive or belt drive???

Worn belts can be a problem to hydro pumps under load.

It could be the side it's pulling to is the strong side, and the side that isn't pulling has problems.

Give us more information please.
