Have you changed the drive belt since new? also check tension pulley for drive belt, if ok and belt is in good condition, you have a bad drive.

How does a hydrostatic transmission work in cub cadet mower

Yes there is Motor oil in it 20w50 is what most Hydro Gear brand uses. There is a piston pump with a wobble plate and a hydraulic motor that drives the wheels. I am not familiar with the term butting trans in free wheel / If it means placing the bypass valve in neutral and pushing the directional lever back and forth with it running then I would say it is loaded up with air from foaming oil which was caused by condensation/water in the oil.It will need drained, filter changed if it has one, refilled with 20w50 motor oil,check the plastic fan on the drive pulley on top of trans, if broken,missing or blades missing replace it and run your engine RPMs all the way to get enough air to cool that hydro. This video will help you understand the theory .

Jack the mower up at the rear and make it stable before doing any work on it, remove the rear wheels by removing the hub caps if they are still on the wheels and remove the cir clip and washer on each wheel and remove the wheels. there will be a key way on each axle when you remove the wheel, make sure they are put back in their place when assembling the wheels onto the axles or you will not have any drive on the wheels
Remove the drive belt, brake rod etc then support the trans axle before removing the retaining bolts and removing the trans axle from the mower. hope this helps.
If you are not mechanically inclined then you should leave the repairs of the trans axle to the mower repair shop unless you are buying a new or reconditioned trans axle, in which case you can fit the new trans axle in the reverse order of removal.

you have a problem in the hydro unit. probably a broken seal that is allowing oil under pressure to escape and build up temp in the unit Suggest you have a massey mechanic inspect and advise the exact cause as it will not be a one off problem

Right wheel turns but the left one will not on john deere la115

hi there

have you had the r/h wheel off at any time ? please check that you have the axle / hub key in the r/h wheel hub

if it is and the l/h one is in as well and the bypass rod is disengaged and it still does it
might be a internal hydro box problem

search - la115
select pictorial , then select transmission , and trans page will open up with a picture of trans think model is tuff torq k51 but not totally sure - model of box will be on trans somewhere

might pay for your local shop to take a look

I have a 14.5hp craftsman lawn tractor, model 917270514 that is VERY difficult to shift in or out of gear. This mower is about 11yrs old.I can't locate a plug of any type to check the fluid level in the...

Assuming you have a MANUAL (IE non-hydro) transmission ....

Can you shift with the engine OFF? If so, the problem is a dragging dirve belt transmitting power even though the clutch pedal is depressed. Check the adjustment, and that you have FULL travel on the pedal.

If you CAN'T shift with the engine off, then either the linkage is jammed/stiff, or there's an internal trans fault.

If you DO have a hydro trans, disconnect the linkage at the trans and attempt to move the lever on the side of the trans with vise-grips or similar. If you can move it without much effort, the linkage is siezed, if not, then internal trans fault.

To me it sounds like the hydro unit has developed internal leaks and the pressure lowers as the oil thins from heat.These trans axles are usually replaced as an unit but some can actually be the dealer to see if you can get parts or whether you need to replace the whole thing.I assume you have already tried a new drive belt,tensioner ect. and if so you are down to the trans axle.You may buy some time buy getting rid of the low viscosity oil in the rear end and go to regular hydraulic oil.

I have the same ,Sears Kohler tractor won't pull uphill

Have you checked the fluid level in the hydro trans, there is a drive belt from the engine to the hydro trans check and make sure that this is not worn or loose. Make sure that when you check the tension of this belt that you do not have the engine running or the parking brake set, since tension will be released from the belt when parking brake is applied. good Luck
