How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

One of the disadvantages of hydrostatic drives is that the majority of the oil stays in the loop and doesn`t return to the reservoir for cooling. One way to return some of the oil back to the tank is by using a hot oil shuttle valve.
Air in the hydraulic fluid makes an alarming banging or knocking noise when it compresses and decompresses, as it circulates through the system. Other symptoms include foaming of the fluid and erratic actuator movement.
It is not unusual for transaxle gears to make a slight whining noise while the tractor is moving. Normally, this is more noticeable for new tractors or new transmissions. This sound is the result of friction from the gear teeth meshing inside the transaxle casing.
Although cavitation is much more common with hydraulic systems, it can also seriously damage hydrostatic transmissions. Caused when gases in the fluid vaporize, it`s characterized by noisy, erratic transmission operation.
Lost power in the hydrostatic transmission is the sum total of power losses that support internal leakages and internal frictions. It`s better than conventional efficiency for measuring the efficacy of converting prime-mover power into useful variable output shaft power.
Delayed gear engagement: When you`re low on transmission fluid you will experience a noticeable pause (2 to 3 seconds) when you shift into Drive and Reverse. This happens because there isn`t enough hydraulic pressure to initiate the gear change.
The pressure in a liquid at a given depth is called the hydrostatic pressure. This can be calculated using the hydrostatic equation: P = rho * g * d, where P is the pressure, rho is the density of the liquid, g is gravity (9.8 m/s^2) and d is the depth (or height) of the liquid.
Lost power in the hydrostatic transmission is the sum total of power losses that support internal leakages and internal frictions. It`s better than conventional efficiency for measuring the efficacy of converting prime-mover power into useful variable output shaft power.
In tasks such as moving manure or compost, hydrostatic transmissions are preferred due to their ability to switch from forward to reverse instantly. A second positive is that you can control the speed and direction of travel with your foot, leaving your hands free to focus on steering and operating the tractor loader.

Mowerdeck will not engage… – John Deere 195HP Hydrostatic 42" Cut Riding Mower
ANSWER : I own a similiar John Deere model (L130, 23HP with a 48″ deck). I would check the electric clutch (called a PTO). To do this check the wires to this clutch and look for something disconnected. These wires (to this PTO clutch) should have twelve volts with the key on and the blades engaged.
