While one of the guys was using it, the left side control lever and wheel stopped responding to each other and the mower was towed back to our storage. When I got a chance to look at it and get a update on what happened they had already checked the fluid levels.
Long story short the left side control lever has what feel like tension/pressure on it and it automatically pulls forward. While the wheel it self does not respond. My next job is to hopefully zero down the problem to either the wheel motor or pump and see if they need to be replaced or just cleaned /fixed
I have already tried bleeding the system, and seeing if the wheel is locked up by spinning it by hand. The only observation between the left wheel and the right wheel is the left wheel has what can only be described as a hitch when you spin it by hand and the right is smooth.
My question finally is does anyone have any suggestions or tips for me to troubleshoot or should I just disconnect the left pump down to wheel and clean any filters reconnect and see if that works
As a side note I was going to detach the hydro lines going to the wheel motor to see if, any fluid was being pushed out at any pressure and to eliminate the pump as the problem.
thanks to anyone who can give me some advice, and sorry for my first post being a question instead of adding
