Fred, I tried my max on a decent hill today thought I was going to get killed lol, I climbed 2 smaller hills first that I had no prob with, then a 45 FT hill thats starts easy then gets up to prob 40 degrees on last 9 ft or so I got stuck with front wheels right at the top. I held gas wide,open belt was slipping i think, I could hear it and started to smell like it was getting hot. I didnt roll backwards any, I started to jump lol and I wiggled the sticks alittle by accident and I guess the belt took hold cause then it ate it up pulled out like it was a dozer. thats the 2nd time that has happend to me. Right when I get to the steep part it slips I guess . the guy I got the max from said he just put a new belt on it.
Ill put some belt dressing on it. can I tighten the belt ? my run off manual doesnt say. although when I put it in fw gear it seams to pull out as soon as I give it the gas. also whats the best way to back off a steep hill if you dont make it? I let off gas the first time belt sliped rolled back a foot and shot the gas to it and front wheels came off the ground then I feathered the gas and went right on up. that was on a smaller hill prob 30 degrees.
still love my max I got to try it in some serious mud that baby ate it up.
