We'll here I go again. The 1556 hydrostatic drive is making noise and will lose power going up hills. Can these be fixed. Or do you take a chance on a used one.
Need to identify why it's losing power uphill. I have read that overheating can cause this. Are the fins and the fan blade clean and is the fan blade intact and in good condition? Do you see any wetness at any of the connections indicating a leak? What does the fluid look like? Look for the little things first before thinking you may need to tear it open.We'll here I go again.

Ok put new belts on and it made a big difference. It quieted down and would pull the hill with no problem, then after about half an hour it would not pull its self up the hill.
Here is a pic of the belts I put on, maybe this is the problem?
Well, you may be on to something here. Your Bolens was made in the USA. Your aftermarket products are labeled in Spanish. :rolling:Oh ya
This is the fluid I'm running in it, maybe this is a problem?
