My Snapper 1855 doesn't slip under a load, but when it comes off of a decline of a small grade, it is like it runs out of fluid and takes a moment to catch up. Fluid level shows fine, and it was changed spring of 2012. Could there be air in the system? Or hydro getting weak? Has about 1300 hours on it. Any ideas of what I should try or be looking at?

One quick thing to check are the linkages. If there is a lot of free play at their connections, this can cause those symptoms.

It sounds like Daniel may have the answer. Loose linkages are not a good thing on the hydro speed control input. That's a lot easier to fix than pulling the hydro out for a rebuild.
