Coronet 13 Hydro transmission

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Long time member with very few posts... I have "downgraded" to a Coronet 13 Rear Engine Rider and frankly, I LOVE this little machine! I do have a problem though, the hydro transmission is "weak". As it warms up, it has less and less power to move the machine. I've checked and replaced belts, made adjustments and talked to the local dealer and the thought is that the transmission is just wore out. Problem is, apparently they do not make them anymore... Any thoughts? It really runs great and is easy to get around the yard but the best part is that my wife will actually mow the lawn with it!!! I would really like to fix or replace the transmission but don't know what to do. Any help would be great. Thanks!

If you have a Hydro Gear transaxle, there is a possibility that the oil filter is plugged, I have heard of other instances where, on different Hydro Gear units, the filter clogs up causing low flow and heating up. I am taking a stab that the link is the one you have. The transmission needs to be split to get at element.

Thank you very much! I have looked into this info and will move in that direction as soon as I can get it out of the shed (in the snow!) That is the right model number of the transmission, anyone know where I can get a replacement or if there is a used one around? I am going to assume that if I break it apart to get to the filter, I will replace any worn parts to, just might be a lot easier to just replace the whole thing and have an extra for back-up.
