 john deere 1070 power issue

i have an issue with my tractor's power. when i put it in any gear, it takes 2-3 seconds to get it going. when i go uphill, it is even worse. it acts like no power at all. it barely pulls my bush hog. Is there a clutch adjustment or setting where i can do it myself

any help is appreciated

Does the engine slow down when you loose power, or does the engine continue to run full speed and the forward speed of the tractor slow down?
If the engine RPM's drop then a fuel filter is usually the first suspect. That is an easy fix, a new filter.
If the engine continues to run full speed and the forward motion slows then a slipping clutch likely is your culprit.
Do you have an owners manual that perhaps tells how to adjust the clutch? If it hasn't slipped too long then an adjustment may fix it but if it's slipped too long then a new clutch is your answer.
Almost all clutch replacements require the tractor to be split for access to the clutch. If you have the tools and a safe way to support the two halves of the tractor while apart it isn't a real high tech thing to replace a clutch. Other wise a Deere dealer or any good tractor repair shop is your friend.
Frank.

Good to hear your up and running again. It's lots more fun to use a tractor than tear one apart.
Frank.
