Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float
First check level of hydraulic oil. Sight plastic tube just above and to the right of the hitch. Should be in the middle of the tube.
How long since you changed the hydrostatic oil filter under the seat deck?
Next see if the small splined shaft is turning btween the seat deck and the transaxle from the rear of the tractor. If not, it sheered a key in the hydrostatic drive shaft from the motor to the drive. (Had this happen to me)
Check the lever under the right side fender that disables the hydrostatic transmission to allow the tractor to to be moved without dragging the wheels. Make sure its not in the wrong position.
If all these are ok then the hydrostatic pump has failed.
