    My mother has a John Deere LTR166 rider mower. it was drive fine at first. now it does not want to go up inclines very well. if the incline is to steep you have to keep stomping on the forward pedal to get it to make the incline. what could be causing it to lack forward momentom. Any advise would sure be helpful. I am stumped what to look for.

    Maybe a worn/stretched drive belt for starters ?

    The drive line belt was the first thing I checked. it was still in good shape.
