Sunstar slow to no lift.

Recommended Posts

Late model Sunstar 20. Tractor drives fine and fluid level is correct. Have never used the deck, but I have trouble lifting a 47" commercial blower. At first start, lifting is impossible. When warm, it is very slow. Trans is loaded with red fluid that intend to change for fresh typeF.  Down travel is fine. Seems like a pressure problem to me. Anybody else have this problem and fixed it? Thankfully snow has been sparse.

Had problems like this once on a 720. Turned out to be the oil filter on the transmission..Plugged up filter, or a filter that is wrong for the application can do this. Fram filters with the black grip on them are known to cause this, as they are too restrictive.

Probably what Sam said above, but could also be a leaking hi pressure RV.  On a Sovereign they are located on the charge pump block.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
