Electric pto

How do you tell if it is slipping?  When mowing it doesn’t mow as well as it used to. Seems to knock over some of the grass. It used to make a screeching noise when engaging, it doesn’t do that anymore. 
I don’t smell clutch materials or  anything

Might just need adjusted. Most have a slot next to each spring/locknut. You use a feeler gauge and tighten the nut till the appropriate size feeler fits between the plates in each slot location.

I think my prestige was  .012-.014 or something like that. Owners manual for your tractor should say somewhere what the gap should be. My manual isnt in front of me right now to look....


Slipping could be a number of things or combination of same. Worn pulley grooves, bad or stretched/wrong size belts, weak idler pully spring, bad, or mis adjusted clutch....& other things.

I'd adjust the clutch first. If that does not help, then look at other things as mentioned.
