We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 48 Hydro-Gear Riding Mower & Tractor models
Hydro-Gear riding mowers and tractors are built for high performance and accurate control. Engine problems can cause your mower to stall, fail to start or run roughly. Use these tips to maintain your engine and isolate the source of common problems.
If your engine refuses to start and doesn't make noise when you turn on the power, the battery is the likely cause. Disconnect the battery, charge it fully and place it back into the mower. If the mower starts but dies soon after, the battery may not be holding a charge. Install a new battery before replacing other riding mower parts.
Stains or spots on your driveway or garage floor can indicate a simple leak or a serious engine problem. Allow the mower to cool down completely, and move it to a spot with ample ventilation. Check the fuel lines for holes or cracks, particularly if the machine is several years old. If the tractor is leaking oil, look for problems with the sump gasket or the head gasket. If you cannot identify the source of a leak, seek lawn tractor repair help.
One of the most common issues with riding mowers and tractors is a rough-running engine. In some cases, a simple tune-up can solve the problem. Drain and replace the oil, and install a new oil filter. Replace the fuel filter and air filter. Then, replace the spark plug, and clean the cooling fins on the engine. If your engine is still running poorly, it may indicate that you need a new carburetor.
