    Having trouble with my walk behind going up hills. New this year, has about 400 hours on it. Cub Cadet Commercial 1536 dual hydro WB.

    Basically goes great until I get to an incline and then I practically have to push it uphill. Also makes a "ratcheting" sound as it goes up the hill.

    I'll take it in for warranty and use my backup if there isnt something simple I can do that you guys can come up with. Thanks

    I have the same problem with my Lesco, even after I bleed the air out it still has problems on the hills.
