Hydro Temperature----------------

Recommended Posts

I have a Simplicity 7016-- with the hydro transmission. Just changed the fluid and filter. It works fine. Just curious as to how hot should the hydro pump get?? Mine gets too hot to touch. Would an add-on cooler -- like an automatic transmission cooler help anything???

Are your cooling fan and shroud in place? Mine gets warm cutting grass or plowing snow but not so hot I can't touch it. I'd check the fan and shroud and make sure the shroud intake isn't restricted.

my 6512 hydro gets very hot. i wanna ganna use an atf cooler or a heater core on the return line to cool it. Thinking bout putting a small fan behind it and mounting in a place so that if i ever got a snow cab i would have a heater:D

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
