Change hydrostatic transmission oil

I'd like to change the transmission oil on my ~4 yr old Rider 155. The oil in the reservoir looks very black. The operators manual says I should top up the level as required with 10-30 oil, but doesn't give any further instruction on oil change. Looks like 2 drain bolts on bottom of transaxle. Any suggestions?

    I removed both drain plugs, drained the oil and replaced with approx 1.7 liters of 10-30 Mobil1 synthetic. Working OK so far.

We have tractors and, yes any of those drain bolts will work (for best results do both) then after its drained, put the drain bolts back in and top up the level

I have a husqvarna rider 155, the transmission loses power after I have ben mowing for an hour


Hi, remove the battery and battery carrier, clean all grass and debris from the hydrostatic drive, cooling fins and fan. Your problem is most likely the hydrostatic drive over heating. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I have a Husqvarna Rider 155. Does the transmission oil ever need to be replaced? Is there a filter ? If so how do I change it? Where can I get a SERVICE manual?


Not an expert but have a rider 155. After looking at diagram on partstree.com, it does not appear to have a filter. Just a magnetic drain plug. This is the only site I have found for info and parts.
