    Question z645 Questions

    Hello,

    I did a couple of searches for Z645, Z645 slowing down and Z645 not turning left. But I didn't come up with much.

    I've had this mower for maybe 4 years now and only about 200 hours on it or so. It's been a great mower for the most part. I've only had some minor issues and I chaulk them up to me more doing silly things more than anything.

    I've changed the oil, and greased the fittings that I can see. I've also had to swap out the switch twice. I think mostly because i Left it outside for two years of it's life. I also have changed the blades.


    The problem I'm having now:
    • Slow to turn left. have to use the right stick more so.. then it will finally turn if that makes sense
    • The overall speed is slower now
    • pulling both sticks back will make it go in reverser but trying to turn in reverse is only effective going in one direction



    Hard to explain.

    Looking for advice on where to start looking. The hydraulic fluid doesn't seem to be low. It's on the line


    Just a little lost, Thank you in advance.

    Welcome to GTT.

    Does this mower have dual wheel motors and pumps?
    Dual filters?

    Thanks for the response, spent another hour cutting today, It's got one reservoir and two separate motors at the wheels. With one Hydro pump.

    I noticed today that the fluid is on the the low marker. I'll swap out the fluid and possible the filter if I can find the part number. If I can't find it online I'll call the local dealer.


    Thank you again.

    Aha! found it

    Here is what i've been doing, I've done all the PM on the mower. New Blades, Oil, Hydro oil and filters.

    It might be my perception but it I don't think it helped a whole lot.



    I'm wondering if there is something, that needs to be adjusted out. Does anyone have a maintenance guide for this mower?

    Thank you,

    Thank you,
    The owner's manual is freely available on John Deere's website which will include basic maint tasks.

    There is a service manual but you have to buy that one and it is protected by copywrite laws so you won't find anyone here sharing it. Not saying it is impossible to find on the web elsewhere but I would imagine it is going to be tough to find being it isn't a real common machine. Not like say a 318. Personally I haven't looked for them as I buy the service manual when I am maintaining them. In that manual would be a troubleshooting guide.

    I would talk to your dealer and ask them about doing a pump flow test. This will narrow it down quick.
