    I just bought an extremely nice 1989 Toro 580D w/645hrs yeah I said 645 .The right motor works well for 10-15 mins then slows down and stalls and wont turn.Also the forward movement seems a little jerky and not as smooth as what I think it should be. All Suggestions and any form of advice/help appreciated.Thanks

    I'm also having problems with my deck motors on my 1993 Toro 580D. Toro has discontinued the repair kits and the motors are way over priced. Are there any after market repair kits or after market motors that will fit???

    Those motors are driven my hydro fuild right? How old is the line running to it? The inner wall of the hose might be collapsing restricting flow.

    Thank you Swampy. Yes they are hydraulic motors! I am needing help with getting them rebuilt. You see Toro has decided to discontinue the rebuild kits for the so they can make everyone buy a new motor for mega bucks, so im looking for a place that can rebuild my motors. I would also be interested in finding a motor that would fit in as a replacement. Thank yo for responding and yes the hoses are fine its the motors that are worn out.
