Without beating a dead horse anymore about whether a sealed transaxle will last, may I ask how to keep it under 90degrees as suggested by manufacturer? Doesn't TT say when temp reaches over 90 degrees then that is when damage to oil starts to occur. I drink my coffee hotter than that. How in the world can that be done even if you use if JUST to cut grass?? It seems virtually impossible.

In Texas you would never be able to use it. 90 is a cool day in the summer.

keeping the fins/fan real clean helps and cutting when cool,which ishard to do.
i stop a lot lately,cut for 30 minutes then stop and let cool down.from what i see steep hills and pulling something heavy is main reason of tranny failure,getting to hot on tranny.
this is why old timers swear by standard shift ,some still try to find them and will not buy a hydro-stat.if someway you could water cool the tranny or have fluid go thru a radiator then back to tranny would do it.

but inside there is hardly any fluid anyhow,you are lucky to get a qt out of it.more fluid like 5 qts would be a big help,that 1 qt or so just gets to hot.
