I recently purchased a super mini with a 52" deck, 24 HP Honda engine, and a BAC VAC. I am not in the business and will be using it to cut my own personal residence.. I have a question regarding the 24HP Honda engine and in particular if anyone has seen power issues when going up moderate slopes? The day I got my unit home I was using to cut the lawn and found that it had a tendancy to bog down when climbing a moderate? 30-40 degree slope. In fact I actually snapped the pump drive belt and the dealer said it was the first time he had ever seen this happen. Having not had much experience driving a commercial mower or a ZTR I chalked it up to inexperience, however after using a few more times now I still feel like there is a problem with the machine and that the 24HP engine should be more than adequate to climb this particular slope. Could there be something other than the engine that might cause the problem? Any feedback would be appreciated.
