      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

L13 hydro John Deere slow in forward

Recommended Posts

My L130 hydro rider mower  is starting to move slow like its got a brake on. It still goes forward and backwards just slower than normal. Can it be low on fluid in the rearend etc.? What does it use for grease also?

I believe that model has the k46 hyrdo tranny it is not serviceable and is a sealed unit. Even if you were able to drop it out (huge PIA) and drill into it and change fluid. it "might" and that is a big might fix the issue. Its likely that hyrdo tranny is already shot. But I have heard mixed results when changing the fluid.

 

Your options are to upgrade to say a k66 hydro tranny which is serviceable if you can find one used or buy the kit online

 

I would just get a new mower and part this one out if its still running well. After what its going to cost to fix the L130 it just isnt worth it in my opinion. And it is unlikely a fluid change is going to get you what you want.

 

Unless you have a bunch of attachments for it, like a snow blower etc then I would maybe keep it. How big of yard do you have? Any hills etc?

 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this it what happens when you buy the big box store models and not one from an implement that is serviceable. I ended up in the same scenario as you a few years ago, same tranny just a different model deere, lesson learned

Not sure if the k46 has changed at all but depending on your know how, there are plenty of people out there who have cracked it open and rebuilt it with great results.  Another options is to watch online garage sale sites for someone who blew an engine and is parting out to pick up the rear end off there's.  I went through a lot of rebuilding on my last mower but it was very old and ultimately had to let it die.  Really depends on how much time and money you want to spend and what condition the rest of the mower is in.

Well, I bought a L110 from a local implement guy, Podeins in Stewartville, which I am pretty sure is exactly the same unit sold at Home Depot.  

I talked to a couple dealers back when I was looking and they said they get the exact same equipment by model as the box stores.  They just don't always buy as much and tend to carry a bigger variety of the higher end mowers.  But it does sound like if its the same model, they are the same at a dealer or a box store.  The big stores just get a better deal because they buy them in bulk for all of their stores across the country.

Thanks to all. I have all the options for this rider. 48" blower and bagger system. I would like to put a tranny in it. I found a new one at a very good price.. Its a Tough Tork K66 model,,, ( PN. 7A632084621 ). I cant find the info to be sure if this will work on my L130 Jon Deere for sure before I purchase it. Will i need to do any modifications to my rider or is it a swap me out thing? Or should I see about staying with the tough Tork K46.

If I changed my k46 hydro trans and put in the k66y hydro trans would I need a conversion kit to install the k66? I see some riders do need a kit and I have the L130 deere. Hoping someone knows. The new trany is a Tuff Torq 7A63284621  /  sn/66Y-0047596   and //    HOP    PN   426118     Thanks again to all.

I had a similar problem a few years back.  I found out that the tractor I bought was only marginally able to handle the load from a snowblower.  It didn't take long for the whole thing to crump out.  It was a Simplicity and was fairly new.  You may want to check and see if your unit can handle the snowblower, and whether a new transmission is going to work in the long run.  The economics didn't work out for me and so I sold it for parts.

    •   I am not a big Football guy but feel sorry for those folks as well.  IMO if you are just wanting to watch some good hockey with no desire to Win the cup then you are just a casual Fan and that is all good....but I see it differently....it all starts with Hope. As far as the crazy talk this is a quote directly from Liepold out of the Pioneer Press at the start of this season “Anything short of winning the Stanley Cup would be a disappointment,” Leipold said. So my guess is he's getting impatient too, he wants to bring a Cup to MN, he sees we have not been improving, and IMO he's setting the table to give Fletch his walking papers if in fact we don't make a deep run this year.
    • Starting with the 2018 model year (released in March 2017), all 8' wide Yetti's have a 72" x 80" rear ramp door. Many common interior finishes reduce the width down to 70". There are 17'+V front and 21'+V front tandem hydraulic models available. In addition, these Traxx Editions (toy haulers) have adequate hauling capacity for your UTV plus gear.    Good luck on your search!    https://yettioutdoors.com/products/#traxx 
    •   This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^   I think the difference is that when message boards like this one were more popular, the info was archived in a user friendly format. Anyone could find the info about Lake Waconia because it was cataloged and searchable under a heading or search terms that made sense. Now the info being offered in groups on Facebook is just a bunch of bits here and there and if you don't catch it when it is first posted, the chances are you will never see it.  
    •   yes this is a good point. But also remember to not be like a particular poster that used to frequent the forums who alleged to catch the same exact fish on different casts. But the exif data showed that the 2 pics were taken within a second of each other and the b.s flag was thrown.
    • Been on facebook? there's plenty of chatter on there.
    • Any suggestions?   I'm running out of ideas. My wife is working today but I am home in the snowstorm all day. We just had chicken wild rice soup last night and chili not too long ago so no soups and I don't feel like standing outside by the grill or smoker in this weather so what should I make for supper?
    • From Strikemaster.....   This size blade has been discontinued since 1981. Wow.......so my auger is at best only 37 years old.......If it could only tell stories.
