Hayter 48

Recommended Posts

Hi, my Hayter 48 has been getting harder and harder to deal with the slope in my garden, it appears to have lost a lot of drive. 

Any ideas ?

Ok, thanks.   So in that case if you're lucky it will need a pair of belts, and or cable adjustment.  If not that (worst scenario) it'll probably need a gearbox.  I would Check that the belts are not really loose first.  And check the variator pully hasn't failed or started to break up.


Also  something else to check,  make sure it's driving both roller sections, it might only be driving one which will make it struggle on a slope. Common problem on the harriers.
