9020 Pow'rmax Pump/Hydro Problems

Recommended Posts

I just noticed today a steady clicking from what I can determine is the hydro motor. With the 3-speed transmission in neutral, pushing the hydro lever causes the clicking to start and it increases in frequency with the higher speed setting of the lever. It also makes the same sound in reverse. Using the hydraulic levers for lifting does not produce any noises. Given these conditions, I am thinking the pump is ok, as well as the rear end / transmission and the problem is the hydro motor between the pump and transmission. Does this sound correct? Does this mean I have a very short time before it completely quits moving? Right now, everything works as it should, just a noisy clicking sound. Is there anything in this hydro motor that can be rebuilt or does the entire unit have to be replaced? Does anyone know if this part can still be bought from a dealer? Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

As said above check the simple external stuff first. If it is inside the pump/motor the longer you run it the more damage you will do. It will also contaminate the oil with small micron sized debris that will be very difficult to flush out in the event you must repair or replace the hydro unit.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
