What would cause hydrostatic to stop working


Usually this is due to a low oil/fluid level in the transaxle. Over time, these units develop leaks. Just be sure to install the proper oil/fluid recommended for you unit.

Yardman riding mower no reverse forward jerking motion


It sounds like you either have a lose belt that is slipping or the fluid in the transaxle is low, or the transaxle is going bad, if it is a hydrostatic transaxle, drain and replace the fluid first, if that fails, you may have a bad seal in the pump or a worn gear

Lawn mower transmission


This can be a loose belt that is slipping, low fluid in the transaxle, a bad pump (if hydrostatic transaxle) or worn gears, start by checking belt tension, then replace the fluid and filling to proper level, if that fails, the trans will need to be inspected for internal damage to pump and gears

Transmission fluid low, hydrostatic transmission will not run in high position, where do i fill fluid


Quoted from your Owners Manual. . . . .

TRANSAXLE PUMP FLUID
The transaxle was sealed at the factory and fluid maintenance is not required for the life of the transaxle. Should the transaxle ever leak or require servicing, contact your nearest authorized service center/department.

My murray 17 hp 42 inch cut hydrostat mower will barely go uphill


Hydrostat transaxles are very picky like the trans in your car. It must have clean fluid and be full of fluid. I am not saying to fill that transaxle to the top but make sure it is to the top of the fill line. Also it needs to be changed every few years and keep it clean to help it stay cool. If it has a filter make sure to change it when you change the fluid in the transaxle. That fluid is nothing more than 20-50W motor oil.

Purge the transaxle by pulling the freewheel lever at the back of the transaxle.With the lever in the freewheel position run the engine full speed with clutch out,work the forward/reverse control back and forth 10 times and then try it.Also make sure that if you had the wheels of that you didn't lose a wheel key.

Craftsman 15.5 hp 42'' what kind of fluid goes in the hydrostatic transaxle if i need to change it


It takes 15w-50 or 20w-50 synthetic motor oil.Do not use hydrostatic fluid, it is too thin. Amsoil, Mobil-1, Purple Power or Lucas are four of the most popular brands. You have to suction it out from the plug on top of the transaxle and refill it there also to within 1.5 inch from the top,do not overfill,air is needed in top for expansion.

Hydrostatic drive squeels and stops pulling when hot


I had a similar thing go wrong. Even though the hydrostatic drives are designed so that the fluid doesn't need to be changed, If it is a hydrostatic transaxle check to see if it is leaking,if it is then there really is no repair to transaxle. If it isn't leaking then It sounds like the oil in transaxle is worn.The transaxle is supposed to be a sealed unit requiring no service but over time the oil will get dirty enough to cause problems like you are describing.Remove the back hitch plate and look at the transaxle it will have a rubber vent hose or a 1/4 Allen wrench fitting on top. You will need to purchase suction bulb and use it to remove as much oil from transaxle as possible. Warm the transaxle up first by running it around,then suction the oil out.Refill with a good synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50 like Amsoil or Mobil 1.Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid. When adding the new oil back fill it to within 1.5 in from the top,be sure to allow this amount of air space in top of transaxle for expansion

What kind of oil do I use in a Wheel Horse lawn tractor?


Your Onan engine will do excellent with Mobil One 0w40, Mobile One 5w30.

DO NOT use hydraulic oil in the transmission/transaxle, you will destroy it. Your tractor uses an Eaton 11 Hydrostatic transmission pump with the oil resevour being the cast iron transaxle. The WheelHorse transaxle is as rugged as they come. It uses a solid cast iron housing, case hardened intermediate gears and forged differential gears with an eight pinion differential.

Your transaxle requires 10w40 synthetic or conventional oil as well as a wix 51410 filter or the OEM wheelHorse filter. It should be changed every 100 hours with conventional oil or 250 hours with synthetic. DO NOT use hydraulic oil!
