    Forward Pedal hard to puch no power! (2305)

    OK so I made a HUGE mistake and loaned my 2305 out. Well it came back and would swear it fell off a trailer.
    Front tire with air bubble the size of a baseball, cup holder missing, drive shaft vibrating or bent, trans fan gone, trans fluid looks like motor oil, no power at all, forward pedal hard to push in, dents scratches and was left outside uncovered for over a month. They were supposed to just be cleaning some under brush. LOL
    Now my problem.
    I ordered a new fan, cup holder and universal joints on Tue were to be here on sat, drove an hour and the fan disappeared, yes before I left I called asked them to check because of the drive and they said all was there. Well they can't reorder the fan until Monday won't be there until Tues some time. Unfortunately in WNC J-D dealers are falling like flies, just none around any more.

    My plan is to change out all the parts, drain the hydro fluid, change filter and clean the screen.
    My 2305 has never ever missed a maintenance call, fluids and filters always changed more than probably necessary. Trans fluid was changed about 16 months ago or about 120 hrs. It was recent.

    My main concern is that right now There is no power, The tractor will barely make it up a 15% incline by itself in low range if I start the rear mower it will just bog down. Reverse is good, all the attachment seem to work OK just a hard forward pedal and no power. But without the fan I don't want to run it for more than a few minutes.

    Any ideas????

    Thanks all in advance!

    Start with the hydro fluid flush and filter change-then hope for the best.

    Yes don't run it without the fan unless only a few minutes. Before making a 3rd trip to dealer check the bracket on the drive shaft that holds the fan. If it turns freely it needs replaced. That piece was was over a $100 8 yrs ago. You could order your parts on line from some of the vendors.

    Sounds like they broke the fan blade early on and then without fan working it fried your hyd fluid. No fan on the Series 1 is one reason I got rid of my 2305.

    914 on the tractor and I'm guessing 30-40 hrs they put on it. Oh and it was the hottest days of the yr here. I had to use branch cutters and a sawzall to cut branches from underneath it.

    Sounds like some awesome friends. Gizmo needs a few like that.

    Make sure the pedal to trans linkage isn't bound up. There may be some greaseable linkages in there too. Is the engine bogging down when this happens, or is the transmission?

    Hmm...
    If the fan was broken early on and they overheated the hydrostat (hence the hydraulic oil looking like "motor oil") then there may be some permanent damage. I'd start with some cheap fluid first just to flush things out a bit, then if all is well change again over to the good stuff.

    Good idea.
    I'd do one better, go for the real stuff then change it again. Has to be cheaper over all than a hydro repair.

    Sorry about your tractor issues, I like your revised(?) signature . I'm basically in the same mode ... "Don't even ask to borrow it, I won't loan it. I'll help you out if I can, but I'm running my own stuff."

    I'd only loan my tractor or other stuff to either of my brothers, but they live 2 and 4 hours away, and none of us have a way to transport it, so I'm probably safe there. But my brothers and I don't usually lend/borrow stuff, but we're close enough that we wouldn't return anything damaged.

    Back to the fan cooled hydrostat issue, there a lot of 2305's out there, has anyone made a retrofit to either replace or complement the cooling fan? I figure tapping into the return line on the open center loop with a small oil cooler placed in front of the radiator wouldn't be too difficult, and would provide enough cooling that could possibly replace the fan. ... Just a thought ...
