Thanks twostep,I had no idea that JD used the same transaxle in the early 140 and thanks for the link to your thread.Good info.

 

The only 2 differences I know of between the units used on the JD140s & Bush Hogs 1: turning brakes on JD axles 2: the hydro control shaft exits the bottom of the hydro unit on the JD, top side on the Bush Hogs

OK thanks Brian a know a very limited number of transaxle's had limited slip (Simplicity/Allis,the big peerless two speed hydro used in several brands,Wheel Horse offered one for a short while,and JD also had one in the gear drive 110's for a short period) those are the ones that come to mind.I was surprised to see that every time i get the front wheels choked the tractor will instantly spin both wheels as long as i will let it.I have yet to have just one wheel spin,at least that i have seen.

While pulling off the 8.50's and putting the 10.50's on I noticed that when I spun one wheel the other wheel spun in the opposite direction. Since that can be indicative of a limited slip I rocked the tractor over so the other wheel was on the ground and sure enough one wheel would not spin if the other didn't. Then the grand kids were over today. They wanted to take a ride so I got one of the 1414's out and hooked on to the little trailer. We headed out to the field that turned out to be softer and muddier then I would have expected. We went about a quarter mile thru the field and it seemed that we would be stuck about any time but not one time did we get stuck. The diff.did seem to work like a limited slip. Maybe it was an option to the tractor manufacturer ?

I've never seen one of these equipped with limited slip.  The differential has no neutral, so the bull gear always has so much resistance from the hydro that when one wheel is turned, it must spin the other opposite, as the bull gear will not turn.

Thanks Daniel. That makes sense and I was having a brain fart anyway. For the unit to be limited slip both the tires would need to turn in the same direction when turned by hand...Thought about it after I posted. I think I need more sleep.lol
