Keep my tractor out at the farm my son lives on and he called to tell me the 5045E was acting strange. Said that after he puts it in gear it doesn't always get up to speed as fast as it should. To me, it sounds like the clutch might be slipping. He tells me there is NO free play in the pedal at all. I have read that there should be 20 or 25 mm. Could this be the problem or do you think the clutch may need replaced or could it be something else? Thanks for any tips. We have somewhere close to 300 hours on the 2014 Tractor.
