    Is the brake on? Is the fuel gelling up?

    I'm wondering if snow got into something mechanical under the tractor and jammed it.

    it seems to move ok on flat ground...it just struggles on an incline...it acts like the brake is on but it cant be because it is fine on flat. perhaps the fue is jelling causing trouble under load condition of cimbing the incine

    A few years ago my kubota was acting like that in the snow and I realized it wasn't getting to operating temperature. It was a bad thermostat at 50 hours. The dealer came and replaced the thermostat and I've been fine since.

    Your temperatures have been in the mid to upper 20's at night and warming into the 30's during the day, correct? You shouldn't have gelled fuel at those temps, although adding Power Service to the fuel would be a good idea.

    A bit more explanation of what's going on will save everyone a bunch of guessing. Tires spinning? 4wd engaged? High range or low? Weight on back to offset weight in bucket? What kind of tires? Tires at correct pressure? Engine revved? Engine smoking? Running smooth or sputtering? Did it work OK previously doing the same tasks? Adequate hydraulic fluid? When last serviced? When were (both) fuel filters last changed? Etc.

    there was a thread here last year about a similar BX tractor having trouble going up slight hills... operator thought something was slipping.
    It turns out that the wheels were turning inside the tires... the tire beads had come loose to the point that the wheels would rotate with the tires not turning, and not loosing air pressure either. I don't recall what the solution to the problem was, other than remounting the tires using good bead gunk.

    Have someone else watch for this as you can't see this happening when you're on the seat.

    That would have been me. I have loaded tires and they must have had a little bit to much fluid in them. I can't really check my tire pressure easily, so I just had low tire pressure. The solution was to add air, problem fixed.

    To the OP, is there any chance the brakes are hanging up?
