Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a White lawn tractor LT-125, model # 136L691F190 (1996 year). It has a hydrostatic transmission tha gets very noisy and slips when hot. Cleaned unit & fan-no help. Unit has no drain plug or way to checl level. There is a vent on top of unit & was thinking of using that to drain & refill unit but looks like I might have to remove entire rear end to do so. Any suggestions, comments of ways to access service manuals for unit would be great help!!

SOURCE: Change hydrostatic transmission oil

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

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: 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.

If the belt is loose it may simply be worn out and need to be replaced. Look carefully to be sure that the belt didn't come off one of the pulley wheels as this might give it the appearance of being loose.

The way the belt tightener is engineered, there is no tightening to it, just spring tension. Get back and let me know where it is at. I know I can assist you in gettting to the bottom of this problem.

Riding Lawn Tractors with Hydrostatic Transmission Tip of the Year


Hello everyone! IF you have a riding mower or tractor with hydrostatic transmission you are going to love this insider's tip. Slightly overfill the transmission. Always keep the fluid level about 1/4 inch above the full line on the dipstick. Once you have done this you will instantly notice that the tractor has more speed in forward and reverse. You will also notice that it has more power when mowing up hill. Doing this solved several problems I was having with low power and also slow reverse. I had adjusted the linkage but it did not solve my problem, adding the additional transmission fluid did. Enjoy your more responsive tractor! Joe

My riding lawn mower slips in and out of gear while going forward


Sounds like your transmission is shot if its a geared mower. If its a belt driven hydrostatic mower the belt is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Need to know how to change transmission fluid on cub cadet lt 1045 riding mower


Cub Cadet has five models in their new Series 1000 lawn tractors, all powered by Kohler engines. Cub Cadet models -- as several other lawn equipment brands -- are manufactured by MTD Products.

The Cub Cadet LT 1045 has a 20-hp Kohler single-cylinder engine, with an aluminum block and cast-iron sleeve for longer life. It has a full-pressure lubrication system with spin-on oil filter for easier maintenance. This engine is not as powerful or as long lasting as the Kohler V-Twin OHV, which is available in other models in the line, but the LT 1045's engine is still solid enough to provide years of mowing.

The hydrostatic (automatic) transmission is a good match with the engine and provides sufficient grip to cut grass on moderate inclines. Power is transferred from the engine to the transmission by a heavy-duty Kevlar belt rather than a more expensive shaft drive. A Kevlar belt also drives the three cutting blades.

The mowing deck cuts a swath of grass 46 inches wide at one pass, and is removable for service and cleaning. Four anti-scalping wheels help keep the deck from scalping grass on uneven ground. The cutting height is manually adjusted from 1-1/2 to 4 inches. The turning radius is 18 inches, which standard for lawn tractors. This model is intended for use on 1- to 2-acre lawns without many turns or small obstacles.

While using my Craftmas 17,5 hp lawn tractor with a snowblower attachment, the hydrostatic drive seems to loose power, especially when it working hard and after its been in use for a while. I don't think...


Hello,
My name is Dane and I'm going to help you with your problem. First, I believe those craftsman units are sealed and there's no way to actually check the hydrostatic oil level. So the first thing to do is make sure that you don'thave any leaks around the transmission assembly. If it looks clean and oil free, I would venture to say that it is more of a 90% chance that your drive belt is the problem, however it isn't from icing up, but rather from the heat of the extra work from the weight of the snowblower, causing it to slip. The belt isn't all that expensive and before I would get excited and start worrying about transmission failure, I would just replace the belt first, and rule it out. Make sure all your pulleys and tensioners don't have any loose hardware, and look alligned.

I think you'll fix the problem though just by the belt replacement. I hope I've helped. Thank you! Dane

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...
