I am not a Bobcat dealer, but I can do some checking and make sure mine will fit yours. To help me start, what transmission is it: EZT, IZT, 2800, 3100, 3400, 5400? And what Bobcat is it: RZ procat etc.... I will call my buddy thats a bobcat dealer and see what we are looking at, I wouldn't mind giving you a killer deal to get you going again. I could also rebuild yours for you (depending on which one you had), but the shipping back and forth might make it too close to a new one. IZTs and up we could prolly rebuild for $100 to $150 each (depending on the condition when we open them up, if you are doing one might as well do the other, especially if they are sealed trannys. Give me a pm, I would like to help you out, and I might could get you a new one between $400 and $500 for a fellow lawnsiter......

Hi again....just heard from the seller and he gives this info:

"The transaxle is a Eaton 778 Bobcat Part #4125850. The mower model name is a Leo 25. The hour meter shows 234. The pump head was seized on the shaft. A friend in our maintenance shop was able to get it removed but it did score the head shaft."

does that help? what do you think? thanks. bryan

The part number you are looking for is 4129341 it is an eaton transmission and the badboy will not fit it as they use hydrogear. The price is kinda steep at list of $1,137.78 I have them for $959 each side.

thanks for the quick and helpful info - do I understand correctly that I need to find part number 4129341 rather than the part number sent by the seller?

They are the same part, if you can find the old part number it will be cheaper then my quote, but it is no longer available. The new part number is what I gave you the price on.

Also I am a bobcat dealer that is how I had the part numbers.

wholly crap those are high, Our highest tranny so far is the 5400 pump on the Outlaw, those retail for $699, but the 10cc, 12cc, 16cc, and 21cc parkers are $469, 3100 $499, and 3400 is $599. Those are retail, but I noticed alot of dealers mark them up more, heck I want to discount those to help people out, it sucks to break something expensive like that.... So it would cost $2200 plus labor just to replace both pumps at the retail price, that sucks bigtime....
Maybe if he is the original purchaser of the mower, you can tell him to contact Bobcat directly and explain he just has 200 hours on his mower, and maybe they will give him one at cost, Bad Boy did that for a guy here with an older diesel with 1400 hours, I think it only cost him like $280, he said that was their cost... better than $500... Doesn't hurt to ask either $100 is alot these days, heck thats a tank of gas in my truck...lol....thats sad...

Thats one reason to stay with Hydrogear transmissions. You want to see real high try looking at some of the John Deere zero transmissions:laugh: That will make this one look cheap.
