Slow drive for Weibang Leagacy Pro 48

Hi all,

I've noticed my Weibang Leagacy Pro 48 seems slower than when I first got it. Used appriximately 6 hours per week for mowing, so not excessive use. The engine/blade seem fine but the auto drive is slow to the extent I could walk a bit faster! The vari-speed controls work fine too, no obvious issues anywhere just slow! 

Any helpful tips on what to check or troubleshoot? By the way, I've not yet taken it into a repair shop partly as I need it in action right now.

Many thanks.

    I had the same problem and took it into my dealer, Robert at Garden Machinery in Hamilton. I was the throttle cable adjuster at the handle that needed adjusted. Two minute job. The other option apparently it the drive belt slipping.

      Thanks Graham, great advice. I'll check the cable tomorrow and hope it's that!

    If you take it in then get them to take apart and check the idler pulley system, mine was absolutely mashed, the splined shaft was all chewed up which wouldn't allow the pulley halves to slide up and down leading to belt slippage.

    Trouble is, it took 6 belts being knackered for the dealer to admit there was a fault with it.

    Take any slack out of the cable first, then take the cover off the mower and check the cable is pulling the lever on the gearbox and check condition of the belts while you're there.

      Many thanks John. Will take a good look this weekend! 

      • Have you checked chain if it has one
