I have a Ariens EZR 2048 zero turn mower. The right hand hydro-gear

Customer Question

I have a Ariens EZR 2048 zero turn mower. The right hand hydro-gear barely moves, the belt is fine. The shaft is loose. Is there a fix with replacing the entire hydro gear.

Can you tell me the model or reference number of the Hydro-Gear unit?

Thank you for responding back. I omitted a word on my corespondance yesterday. It should have read, Is there a fix without replacing the entire hydro gear? You asked for the model or reference number of the hydro gear unit. Today I tried to find the number, but couldn't. So I dropped the unit down and found the spline on the drive pully was stripped out. The shaft on the hydro unit is ok. All I need to buy is the pully Kit. I'm ok to go now. Thanks for responding.
