 Gator 4X6 No Power Under Load

I have a Gator 4X6 which recently developed a condition where it has no power under load such as going up a hill. I raised the dump box while driving and it appears that the clutch is not expanding whne I apply the gas. When the Gator is in nuetral and I apply the gas it expands like it should? the manual says to check the fuel filter and sparkplug? Has anyone had a similar experience?

Ouch! I thought it might be a lack of torque due to plugs, fuel filter or some other inexpensive item.

It sounds like you don't have enough power to close the drive clutch under power. Are you sure your back plug is good?

 Gator 4X6 No Power Under Load

Sasuga-I'm about 3 years late here but seem to be having the exact problem with my 2007 620i XUV that you described. The secondary clutch works fine when in neutral and I rev it. It also works in forward gear when I raise the rear end up on a jack and rev it. Once I actually drive it up hills though, it bogs down to a crawl. Like you, I observed it while attempting the hill and the secondary clutch doesn't appear to be expanding at all. The rpms are there, it just won't pull the hill. Dealer told me it sounded like my secondary clutch was stuck and I probably need a new one ($200.00 w/o labor). Did you ever get yours fixed or, does anyone else have an idea on this. I want to explore all avenues before I hand it over to the local JD service dept. Thanks in advance for any help.

Put a pair of gloves on, start your motor and see if both your exhaust pipes going into the muffler are getting hot. That's a good place to start...........

When at the cycle dealer, I would spray a small amount of water from a bottle on the head pipes to identify a cold cylinder.

Well, gloves or water, it was the right place to start. Looks like a dead rear cylinder. Thanks for the direction fellas, although it isn't much consolation, at least I can stop wondering now. Do either of you have a ballpark figure on what it's going to cost to have a dealer fix it?

I would check for spark and go from there.
