    I have a scag 48" belt drive walk behind and I am having problems. In 3rd 4th and 5th gear it lags and what I mean is it will go up to speed and slow down just a bit then pull back up to speed. Im not sure if its the trans or wore belts or even clutch. If anyone has an idea please help and thanks..

    I had something similar and it was just a matter of tightning the belt. took 5 minutes

    Sounds like a belt slipping.
