Why does my hydrostatic transmission won’t move?
Entraining. By far, the most common reason for hydrostatic transmission failure is old hydraulic fluid. John Deere states that “Operating outside of the recommended oil air temperature range may cause premature hydrostatic transmission failure.” Oil must be changed when its anti-foam additive decays.
