    My eXmark engine runs great, until I engage the mower, then the power drops dramatically. I am now mowing 3 acres at 1/2 mph. :cry: But, every so often something seems to release and I get full power while mowing. The mower has been maintained by my mechanic and this started happening after the spring tune-up and new belt. Any suggestions for him?

    Try re posting in the mechanic and repair forum. Those guys should be able to help.

    Does the mower have electric PTO, or is it a wb with manual engagement with a blade brake?
