 Cub Cadet 6284D Hydrostatic transmission slow speed

I'm new to the forum and have read some threads about hydro-static transmission issues. I bought my tractor in July 2018, it has been working fine until just lately. The issue is that in forward and reverse (in hi or low range ) it moves very slowly no matter the rpm of the engine. The oil level is good in the transmission, could the problem be a plugged oil filter? It has just under 200 hours on it so I will be changing filters and fluid soon.
I have also noticed the tachometer only registers speed when the engine is being started and nothing during running time. I assume a loose wire connector for that issue. Where is the sending unit for the tach?
Also the glow plugs system only stays on for 5 seconds or so and I can see that in cold weather that will not be long enough to start the engine. Can that glow plug on time be adjusted at all. I have not tested the plugs yet, it just seems like a short time frame to me.

I had a similar problem once. It turned out that the hydraulic filter was partially clogged and would collapse under use, giving jerky motion. The other portion of yoirbproblems sounds like a loose electrical connection.

Glow Plugs - 5 seconds is about right, and is plenty even when it's cold out. You may get some black smoke & rough idling for a minute or two till the engine warms up some.
Remember that #2 diesel that doesn't have antigel added will wax up and clog everything in the fuel system if the temp goes much below about freezing. Then you may be stuck till spring...

Tach sender - it looks like it's on the right side of the engine near the front from the parts diagram. If this is a brand-new tractor, get the dealer to repair under warranty. Otherwise the sensor is pretty pricey; check the wiring thoroughly first. Also, the ignition switch may be funky as I think you're saying the tach works when the switch is at 'start' but not when it's at 'run'.

(Old tractors - mine is from 2003ish - used a speedometer cable to drive the tach and the 'hour meter', which really counts engine revs but displays hours (divide revs by revolutions-per-hour at a normal operating speed); this is nominally a better gauge of when to change the engine fluids than strictly on-hours.)

I don't know if this applies to you but I'll mention it anyway. I have a 5234D and experienced the same symptoms with sluggish and slow movement regardless of engine RPMs. The problem in my case was low gear oil. I filled the gear oil reservoir and that solved the problem. The gear oil reservoir is located on the front axle.

I neglected to mention that the glow plug lighting up for about 5 seconds is about right. If the engine doesn't start, that's is most likely NOT the reason.

There was a factory upgrade on the hydrostat filter on the 6284. It required an adapter block attached to the trans housing and accepted a different model of filter. Whether the upgrade was associated to performance issues I don't know. The reverse flow filter housing is Cub part #919-04163 and the hydraulic oil filter number is #923-3014. Note that this was a running change and depending on when your 6284 was built it may have that installed from the factory.

Cold starting has been important to me since I cut and haul a lot of wood in the winter. I even put tire chains on all four corners (it's a really tight fit on the rears). Even with properly operating glow plugs my 6284 was always very difficult to start in temperatures below 20 degrees. Over time I have installed a larger battery, a relay to energize the starter directly from the battery (documented here elsewhere), even installing a push button switch for the starter, and (best of all) I installed a water jacket block heater. After several years of making these changes incrementally, I found that the block heater plugged in for 20 minutes lets the tractor start like a summer day.

Like all of my equipment I expect and require that my 6284 works hard summer and winter, in the woods or on my lawn. Considering that it is more a big garden tractor than a farm or industrial tractor it is impressive what I am able to do with it.

Wow, it's nice to have the quick feed back from you all.
I changed oil and filters on the trans today, there was a 2" long strip of form a gasket in the used filter. It may have helped some to increase the moving speed. I'll run it more this weekend and see.
One thing that has happened is the oil light on the dash is blinking. Not sure why but I know the oil level is full, in fact the book say's 26 qts. and that is past full on the dipstick. The hr. meter is also flashing chg oil / 301.20. I assume that is for engine oil and filter change hr marker. I changed that as well today. Is there a reset for the flashing oil light?
Boltboss, I will look into the factory upgrade for the trans filter and reverse flow filter housing. By the way that's a nice fork setup on your three point.
I like the sound of the block heater idea. Out here on the west side of the Cascade mountains it very seldom gets below 20 degrees though.
On the tachometer issue, I found that a spade connector had pulled out of the wire harness connector to the sending unit on the side of the engine block right near the fuel filter. So that was easy.

The oil light flashes every 50 operating hours to indicate it's time to change oil. It will continue to do that for about half an hour or so. It is annoying as hell. It always seems to occur when you are doing something under load and it suddenly starts flashing, scaring you momentarily that something is wrong until you remember what is causing it. I am not aware of resetting it and I certainly don't follow the flashing idiot light to tell me when it is time to change oil and/or filter. I would much preferred that the factory would have provided an oil pressure gauge but I'm sure idiot lights are cheaper.

I think the block heater was a good investment. The Perkins engine is a great little engine but it doesn't like waking up in cold weather. If it doesn't catch within the first couple of tries when it is cold I've learned that all the cranking in the world won't get it until it gets warmed up with the heater. It only takes about 20 minutes to warm it up and it makes all the difference.

When starting in cold weather crank the throttle all the way open but be ready to throttle back down as soon as it catches to prevent over-revving the cold engine. Also, keep the fuel tank fuel to prevent condensation and I always treat the diesel fuel with Power Service Diesel Fuel treatment - summer and winter. It is a lot easier to prevent diesel fuel problems than to fix them after they occur.
