    Well after trading my scag TT for the John Deere 997 I think I regret it. With 9 hours had to have a wheel motor put on. Now with 40 hrs the other one is going. Either this thang will not stick a steep hill or I'm still getting used to it. My scag would hang to anything. I would go out hills where the 997 won't go up and down. Hopefully it gets better

    Possibly cross contamination from the bad wheel motor took out the other one. Use to be a common problem. Now you see separate hydro reservoirs and filters or the switch to Hydro Gear units which are separate.
