Question about Peg Perego John Deere Gator HPX Ride on Toy

1 Answer

One of the wheels will not turn...This gator is a facoty defect because it stays torn up all the time. So far we have bought three gear boxes, 1 batters and not we need a motor. I bet there is not over 8 hours of riding on this gator due to it is torn up most of the time. I have been very dissatisfied with this toy. I think we should be reimbursed with a new one since this is is a factory defect.

SOURCE: replace parts on ride-on toys

The gearboxes for both hummers and peg perego gators are under the back seat.
If you hear a clicking noise It is definatly the gearbox on the gator. The hummer gearboxes sometimes come loose from the motors, so it may be as simple as tightning the motor gearbox.
Here is how you take the gearboxes out from the gator.
1. disconnect battery
2. take hinge pins out from the dump bed to access the green cover plate.
3. take a flathead screwdriver and pry around the plastic cover to expose the gearboxes.
4. take the rear wheels off and remove the rear axle.
remove the motor gearboxes (they are interchangeable)
5. install the new gearboxes making sure the wires are secure and the wheels are going in the correct direction.
6. put back together.
7. hook up battery and your good to go!
If you have any problems are questions you can contact these guys at http://www.shopjandl.com/kids---baby-ride-on-toys-peg-perego-switches-and-shifters.html.

SOURCE: where can i get a rubber tires for a Peg Perego

the whole tire would be difficult to replace with a rubber one, but you can put bmx tires on the plastic wheels and that will give much greater traction, but shorten the life of the gearboxes. here is a link to how to do it.

Both wheels will not move in high gear, only one wheel will spin, they both work in reverse and low gear


It sounds like you need to replace the peg perego switch assembly for the gator, I upgraded my shifter and it works great now, but I also found the additional switches at http://www.mypegperegoparts.com/

Gator lt wheel doesn't turn when in grass/ slips easily and need


only one wheel is driven in slow !
fast engages the other motor [2 wheels drive]
the wheels being plastic or poly wont grip & on the early gators as there is no speed controler in the system to prevent wheel spin!
only other way would be to add rubbr cleets to the wheels! or try changing to wheel barrow or scooter style pump up wheels
if you need more help just email me as i can help with modifaction process like more powerfull motor setup etc etc.

Rear wheels-


Both wheels should spin in 2nd gear. Only one wheel may spin in 1st, but if you put a little pressure on the one wheel that spins it should make the other wheel start spinning.
But both wheels should spin in high gear at the same time.
Hope this helps. If there is more help you can also ask these guys at this website. http://www.shopjandl.com/ I get my parts from them and they seem to also work on them as well

No 1st or Reverse, but will go in 2nd


I just bought one for kids for christmas. Out of the box the switch was already installed. Only worked in 2nd gear. I pulled switch and it only hooks up one direction. Under dump bed theres a cover that lifts up and 2 wires goin to each wheel. The wires to the right wheel were unhooked. As soon as i hooked them up 1st and reverse started working. Dont know if this is the case for yours but worth a try.

Sounds like the gears are stripped. If a bunch of teeth are missing, only the high speed gear will spin the gears fast enough to move the gator forward. I just bought a used one and found it pretty easy to tear apart and diagnose as similar issue. The gear boxes, located inboard of each wheel contain plastic gears and strip relatively easy if the shifter is moved , during motion from forward to reverse.
