    I have a ryan lawnaire IV that is three yrs old... Yesterday when aerating, I noticed that when I would hit the clutch to give it some juice that it was starting to lose some power, esp going up small inclines. It will also periodically make a squeaking noise. Any ideas of what the problem may be and how to fix it. Thanks

    Sounds like it needs a belt adjustment or possibly a new belt but this is just a guess.I would look for a operator's manual online and start reading.Most of the time it's just a simple fix with common hand tools.My old classen took about 5 min max to adjust.
