Customer Question

I was raking hay and lost all hydraulics upon inspection the pulley on the crankshaft had broken both cast dowels therefore came uncoupled with the hydraulic pump. My question is should you be able to turn the hydraulic pump by hand because with nothing attached to the pump I can barely turn it, do I need a new hydraulic pump as well ?

Pump will be hard to turn! If it was working ok, just repair the drive!
