I have a chance to buy a 185 for $400
The owner says the tractor operates for 15 minutes then the drive stops working . This is a hydro drive .
Anyone have experance with this condition ?
I dont NEED a JD but the instent reverse would be a plus
Thanks Dave

Most likely culprit is a clogged or broken hydro cooling fan. The fan is on the transaxle and driven by the drive belt. If the blades break off or airflow is impeded the transmission will overheat causing the tractor to stop moving because the fluid has become too thin.
