I have a LA130 with about 400 hours, notice the tranny drive belt was loose/crack, called for service. First: Service by a John Deere dealer for new Tranny drive belt (on site), now problem in which it slows down after 30 mins. to the point it almost does not move, SO, Second: Next day it goes to the shop cause they said the tranny oil needed to be replaced/adjusted. Three: Comes home, moves for about 45 mins., the tranny really heats up. Forth: Now the dealer says I needed a new tranny. I'm up to almost $500 in repairs and it still working right. (I've had the JD dealer service guy here for the drive belt slipping off, after it was returned, damage to mower lever, I'm not a happy person)
Question: What to do now?
