Question Help with John Deer L120

I purchased a John Deer L120 1 1/2 years ago. I have had it in to have the carb rebuilt already once. It looks like I'll have to have it done again.
My problem is that the hydrostatic transmission seems to be slipping while trying to go up an incline. There is nothing in the manual that helps, it only says this is a sealed unit. I plan to take it back to a dealer as it is still under warranty, however, I would prefer to check it myself if possible. Is this a low fluid situation?

Hello Gary!

Could be low fluid, loose belt, worn belt, or internal tranny failure. The belt would be the only thing you can easily check.
