Cub Cadet Drive problem

I was given a cub cadet blower by a family member who doesn’t keep up on routine maintenance. The problem I am having is in forward gears 1 and 2 the blower does not propel itself, And in gears 3-6 it quickly jerks forward then slows down to a reasonable pace.

It seems like the cable tension is ok.

Any tips on what the issue could be? Thanks

Read this thread and also watch the vid attached in post #3 - - >

I'm guessing that a sticking friction disc might be the problem.


Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
