Hi, I have a 5240 walk behind. I love the machine but I basically have no Hi range and it slips a little on steep inclines an I need to give it a manual push...F & R work and the the mower works but is the loss of Hi range and slipping up hills the clutches ? I see Roger Beno has great videos on the planetary gears but not much on clutches.
thx

Likely its just the jam nuts on hi/lo that need a little tightening. It does not take much turning to do this. If not adjustment is left I would suspect a worn out clutch.

Like above have you tried to adjust the clutches first. Also does the mower deck stop to when it quits driveing or just the wheels. If just wheels forward clutch. If both high low clutch
