John Deere Hydrostatic drive trouble

jd Need suggestions: My brothers JD about a 1980 model lawn tractor with 14 hp Koler engine will not pull.
The JD dealer says he needs a new or rebuilt Hydrostatic drive $1300. Now my questions?
What are common problems, troubles , sheared pins, gears, and etc?

Does JD make this hydro drive or get it from someone else, if so who make it?

I don't know the tractor model # at this posting but I will have it next week. The tractor is at the JD dealer. Any help or info is appreciated

Duane JD,

If you look on the transmission, it will give you the transmission make and model number. Most all tractor OEMs get their transmissions from one of the 3 to 4 tranny manuf.'s

Was the tranny problem gradual, or happen all of a sudden? Give some more specifics on the details and symptoms of your problems and hopefully this forum can help.

If this stared suddenlyand it is full of oil with no serious leaks. Check the Drive shaft.Back then John Deere used a drive pin thru the U-jointand shaft out of the pump. Check to see if the shaft going into the pump turns with the drive shaft.


Dave Frank - I had an Agri-Fab unit that would spread both, along with fertilizer in the summer. Only issue was, rather than salt, I had to use de-icer pellets (since they were smaller than the salt grains). The gear setup was exposed on that unit, and the sand did cause some wear. However, it did not seem to bother the performance. - Dave
