    I have a Ferris Pro Cut 20 with a Eaton 851 Transaxel. It appears to be wearing out. It works fine when cold, but after about 45 min loses power and top speed. also if I stomp down on it, it takes a while to get up to speed.

    I can think of a few fixes
    New one
    Rebuilt one

    heaver oil
    add a oil cooler so it stays cool. Any experence, comments, advice?
