I know that many a GT over the years have used Eaton Hydro's.
I myself have a Woods 1250 ZTR here that has (2) Eaton 7 series units on it; I think my left one is a lil weak. it has never gotten "worse" and I have changed fluid in it once, 2 years ago. I think it's due again before this mowing season. (this will be my 5th or 6th season owning this machine) It works as it always has, since I have owned it// but I gotta hold the right lever back slightly as I mow so as to be able to go straight; if I max out both, it'll veer left.
I really like this mower, it is a 44" cut with a 12HP Kohler Magnum ( a K 301 with elec ignition, essentially)
I have lots of spare parts for it, including an engine fresh from the machine shop I just gotta reassemble so it can take its place under the bench til my mower needs it.
This is exactly the same machine as a grasshopper 1212. (woods owned GH or vise versa in the late 80s)
Anyways; I have a pair of Eaton 11's here that I have no use for. One has a faded tag on it from apparently having been rebuilt.
I wasn't the one to remove them, have no clue as to what they may fit. I can probably get the numbers off them, so one of you guys can possibly ID them.
Is there a chart somewhere that tells exactly which Eaton hydro's were used on what machine by brand/model?
I would be interested in trading my Eaton 11s for a pair of the correct Eaton 7's, as my machine has on it.
Without removing the hydros from my mower I have no other way to ID them > as from what I have seen the numbers are on the bottoms of them. My hydro units currently are still functional, so I have no motivation to remove them and reinstall them just to get a number from them. so a "usage list" would be handy!
also, is there a good "parts source" or possibly a "rebuilder" of these that someone could send in a dead one to be reconditioned and returned? I might even be inclined to send these 11 series ones in under those conditions and see if this rebuilder (if one exists) would swap me for a set of the 7 series ones I woud need, if I am gonna have stuff layin around I'd rather it be parts I can use for my particular machines, if that makes sense. Definitely not an "urgent" need but will become urgent if one of my hydros conks out.
