Sears Craftsman Riding mower, 2007 year, model # 917.28726

Sears Craftsman, riding lawn tractor, model number 917.28726, 24.0 H P, 42 inch mower, electric start, automatic transmission.

My mower has a sealed at factory transaxle. When I press on the "go" peddle, my mower does not go fast as it did when new. It has no "go" power, it does not have enough power to go up an incline. The cutting blades do not go slow. The engine appears to operate properly. A lawn mower technician said the transaxle needs to be replaced. New transaxles are expensive. I'm thinking that I might find a re-conditioned transaxle somewhere. Do you have any suggestions as to where I might find one?
