      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.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
