Question about Honda Garden
The hydrostatic drive on my HRX537 is giving trouble. It will work for about 20 minutes then I have to push the mower to get it moving. I've stripped the gearbox and have now rebuilt it with parts from an old one that was working but still have the same problem. Before I fork out for a new gearbox any ideas? I guess the pistons must be worn and when the gearbox gets hot the oil is no longer getting to the required pressure, though everything inside the box looked OK.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The last time I had a Honda mower in my repair shop I noticed that Honda doesnt do individual parts on its transmissions for mowers OR tillers.
You can fix this mower...but the transaxles are a bit expensive. Honda mowers do tend to be worth it though.
If the axle broke cleanly maybe someone would weld it back together?
I mean, the wheels dont turn that fast that balance would be an issue right? And I am sure the axle metal is cold rolled steel....which is to say it isnt thin cast material that would resist welding. If you take the transmission out of your mower and just take the parts to a good jobber maybe they would give it a try for 10-20 bucks? Dont expect a guarantee...but, for 20 bucks most shops wont even pick up a mower let alone try to fix it.
If this gives you another couple of years of service that would give you time to consider a replacement mower when the unit needs service again.
Good luck and be careful!
