Hello. The last 2 times i cut my 2 acre lot, literally the last pass each time the engine bog down like the grass was a foot tall and wet. I thought maybe the PTO bearings were going bad. It seem that when i disengaged the PTO it went away. I used the tractor through the fall just not with the PTO, never again bogged. Plowed snow multiple times, no problems. Yesterday put on my 38 blower and after about 40 min the bog came back. This time even with the PTO disengaged. It began to bog while blowing, disengaged the PTO and then went to go forward to drive back to garage it bog down, even when going in reverse. Now im thinking this might be the engine and not the trans. Anyone ever have this prob? It goes away about 2-3 secs after disengaging the PTO or stopping the tractor. Sorry for the lengthy post but this has really got me stumped. Just wanna make sure i tear into the right part. Ive read just about every post on trans tear down, while not to hard very time intensive, but defiantly want to fix it be fore it grenades.
