My zero turn has two hydraulic pumps the right side quit working and there is a ton of oil underneath the engine deck on that side. I'm assuming that the pump is shot or do you think the pump can be repaired or do I need a new one

:wave: Welcome to the forum! I haven't a clue about these zero-turn mowers, but I'd say a seal gave out!

You need to find the exact source of the leak, it could be as minor as a hose, or it could be as major as the motor on that side.

I would have to agree, have you started it and looked for the source of the leak? Hydraulic systems are very tough and usually the weak points are hoses and fittings. This time of year with cooler weather your fittings will get a workout while running and expanding can cause them to loosen and or fail. Just my two cents!
