    I have a friend with a 93 48" Skag mower, and the "rear axle pump assembly" on the right side is just slipping as if there are no gears left. He was told $1200 for the axle pump assembly alone, and I am not able to track down this part anywhere. The mower only has 800 hours on it, and he was also told that the left side one will go out right away anyway, so the guy wanted to charge him for both sides ($2400 plus $300 labor).

    Does anyone have a source for older "axle pump assemblys" ? And also, "don't fix it if it ain't break" or "preventative"?

    I apologize for being so vague about this, as I am just trying to help a friend out with some of his farm equipment.
