    I have a 1997 Dixon 5502. I rebuilt the motor, replaced all the belts, and changed the fluid and filter in the drive system. When you first start off it takes off like a rocket but after you move the handles a couple of times it slows to a crawl and won't go up a hill. The motor is still at high idle but the wheels don't move. It you let it sit for a min it will take off like a rocket again. Any Ideas?
