Hi,
The machine was running fine this fall when I ran it to test it out. Each time I use the machine, it take 5-10 minutes before it will move. Once it gets going, no problem. Do you think it's a wet or iced-up friction wheel, a cooked friction wheel, or something else? My guess is wet, because when it resolves itself, it climbs my steep driveway, under load, no problem. Suggestions on a fix?
Thank you kindly.

Have you tried to make any adjustments? Open up the belly pan and see what’s going on. There’s only a handful of small screws holding the belly pan on. Can you see any oil leaks around the base of the engine? What’s your model number?
