High RPM to get the rated HP output. Not much on the torque end. Transmission sometimes sticks in high second. Has to be forcefully pulled out of gear and then works for a while. There is no predicting when it will happen again. Starting to suspect problems with the brakes.

Tractor acts like the brakes are dragging all the time. It will not coast down an incline when the clutch is depressed or the transmission is shifted to neutral but just come to a stop like the brakes have been gently pressed.
