  1. Hydraulics
    Hello all, my first tractor ever is a JD 1830. The biggest question I have is how the tranny works. I can't seem to find any info. The previous owner said that it was a hydrostatic transmission. I have a basic understanding of, say, the kind used on a lawn tractor or a forklift. Why would I need...

    I’m a long time reader, first time poster. I just wanted to drop in and let you, Tudor, Charles, and many others know that your posts and threads are still there. I’ve spent several days following a lot of you guys around on FEL posts. I’m a seasoned industrial maintenance tech, and I’m just...

    My L120 has 350 hours, but my yard is 2 acres, hilly - lower side maybe 15' below high side. I have some steep banks that I used to go up with confidence. Now, once the tranny gets hot - maybe half way through the yard - it will not go up level-with slight grade. If I let it set for a few...

This will enable me easy access to the trans reservoir cap. I completed this today. Upon opening the cap I saw what appears to...

The sound seems to be coming from the drive belt pulley or shaft, I...
  8. Husqvarna/Dixon
    I Purchased a used tractor at the end of this season. Idea was to get it cheap, spend some time this winter fixing what needs fixing in the garage, and have a good running lawn tractor in the spring. What I found was a Husqvarna lawn tractor for $300 that seems to be in good shape. Model...

    Question for the hive mind. I recently came into possession of a yard-man 694 series hydrostatic drive riding mower, with a 16hp Kohler Command engine. Unfortunately, it had been sitting in the guy's shed for a few years, and mice had a party in the engine and blower housing. Most of the...
