 2550 slow in reverse

Has anyone else had a problem with this? My 2550 moves very slowly in reverse, and not at all if there is any kind of incline or resistance. I took the tractor back to the dealer, who adjusted the linkage. He stated that it moves as well as any other one like it, but I am doubtful. Sometimes I have to hit the pedal forcefully a few times even to get it moving backwards (not just in the winter, summer too). So Sad

I'm not familar with your machine. But I do have equipment with hydrostats. I'd check if the linkage has too much total joint play. A little lost motion here, a little there can add up. I would disconnect whatever goes into the pivot that is part or closest to the hydraulic pump's swash plate---this is what controls direction and speed. Inspect for wallowed out mounting hole or boss or a broken attaching/locking pin for the linkage at the place. Inspect the linkgae side too for the same conditions. Jack it up with the wheels off the ground and the fronts chocked for safety. Start 'er up and see if you can replicate the go-pedal's action of changing the swash plate inputs by turning it by hand (it shouldn't take a lot of effort. If you can't get better results going directly to the pump's directional source (the swash plate pivot), I can't imagine what it could be---the pump/motor is fairly simple. These piston pumps are fairly simple and straight-forward, so if it works in one direction it should work in the other.

Grumby,
I had the same problem when I had my snowthrower put on. I just adjusted the linkage (just below the pedals) to put more to reverse. It is just two bolts to loosen and adjust.

Good luck!
Tim
