Can an Eaton Model X778 -005 Hydrostatic drive unit be rebuilt.

I have a zero turn lawn mower which seems to loose drive in one direction and will eventually regain power in that direction in about 1 minute. Suspect Eaton Drive unit. Snapper cautions against checking hydraulic fluid level. Can the fluid resevoir be opened for checking the level of fluid or even the addition of fluid. Also what type should be added?

Thanks for any help.

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

SOURCE: checking fluid level

most units of this size & quality have a factory sealed transmission. to check or change oil, the transmission would have to be removed.

If it's a hydrostatic transmission, I would have the transmission looked at. You may need to "purge" the system and check the fluid level.

The ones I've done called for the drive disconnects (the rod or lever which allows you to roll the tractor when the engine is shut down) to be in the flow bypass position. They also wanted the wheels off the floor, then the engine to be started, & the direction control to be worked SLOWLY to the front & rear positions 10-12 times. Then put the bypass valve back in its 'drive' position, fire the engine again & repeat the slow cycle of the direction control. The unit SHOULD be quieter now & perform better, but double check the oil level because expelling the air may have dropped it too low.

Wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??


Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

Looking for when the oil and transmission should be changed on Lt


Hey,

Many manufactures recommend a engine oil change every 50hrs more often in extreme conditions,

Most transmissions are sealed units if this is the case company's recommend not to touch these,

If you have a hydrostatic drive or a Zero turn unit with twin hydrostatic drives the transmission oil must be changed every 500 hours or every year whichever comes first as the hydraulic oil brakes down in time, also at these intervals the hydro oil filter must also be changed...

Cub Cadet engine runs but, also will not go in forward or reverse


you didnt say what model this is, but i assume its hydrostatic because it has a drive shaft. is the hydrostatic unit filled with oil¿ if its ok, check the linkage from the pedal to the rearend (hydrostatic drive) make sure its not broken or loose.. if that l@@ks ok, check both ends of the drive shaft making sure the couplers are not broke and the drive shaft is ok. hope this helps.

Hydrostatic Transmission Failure


There is a transmission bypass lever on the back of the mower, if the bypass is moved out of the drive position, it will not drive in either direction, and will be really easy to push.
