I pulled the mower in tonight to start de-greasing. The hydro is slower than it should be by about half. Soaking now, clean tomorrow and inspect. Quite a few suspect joints and hoses. Eaton 11 hydro, btw.

Nice machine for sure, hope you get the hydro up to snuff.

 

One of our parks departments here uses those, and I am always amazed at their ground speed while cutting.

Mowing with it last fall, it cuts fine no matter the speed, as fast as you can go and stay on the seat works just fine. I have never seen a heavier mower deck than the one on this. It's thicker than most brush hogs.

It's the fitting right out the top of hydro. 90 bend, suction hose attached to one end, threaded into the top of the Eaton 11 on the other. In between the bend and the nut on the threaded portion.

Always check the simple things first. O-ring replaced and it doesn't seem to be leaking anymore. Shortened up (cut off) another suction line that looked ratty at the clamp, and it seems to run stronger. (foot on tire test, it's still on the jack stands)

Front mowers are simply awesome!  I have a John Deere F935 with 6 foot cut deck and it'll go most anywhere.  I did however get stuck once.  Seems when you slip down a bank into 12" of sludge/mud/manure, they tend to get mired up....even with differential lock!  :smilewink:

  Yep, we have to replace o-rings under those type fittings a lot.  They come out looking like they are triangular o-rings.  I thought you meant it was leaking from where the tube goes into the body.

This one was just a bit thin in one area. Just enough, I guess. Dropped it off the jacks and spun around the driveway quick, it is faster. Lots more power in low gear also, it digs in when parked against a tree. Before, it would just sit. So, with new fluids and a good greasing it will get tomorrow night when I get home, it will be ready to hook up to the mower deck. At least 3 weeks before I need it though, four inches of snow on the ground yet.

 

Time to start planning the next project. If I can get a snowblower for this, I would sell the Bolens. I have a really bad idea rolling around in my head that someone should talk me out of. It includes a welder, metal, sprockets, and lots of head-banging. Finding a snowblower for this is tough, and bring good money. I see no reason why I couldn't build one. This is the design that I keep thinking about:

Is this better?

If I were to attempt building something like that, it would have twin 24" fans, end up about 52"-54" wide I think.

Mowed for a bit, hydro is still not up to full speed. No leaks that I can see. Back to the drawing board.
