    Hi

    Yesterday ive change my hydro oil in my super walk behind
    it said 10w40 motor oil,so i've emptied the reservoir and and filled back with 10w40 castrol gtx motor oil,filled up to an inch front the top started it back up
    and let the system bleed itself, well right now the mower is moving but as very low power,it can't even go up the ramp from my trailer, any reason for this?
    kind of new at this

    thanks

    Model #925669
    Serial #040...57

    Sounds like you still have air in the system.
    That or your release valves are turned out, turn them back in and snug them up with a wrench very lightly.

    I forgot to put oil in the oil filter before putting it in,so that's probably why there's oil in the system,How would i remove the air in the system?

    And btw where could i get mulching blades for my mower??

    thanks

    That would cause it.
    You just need to keep running the hydro's while you have the unit jacked up off the ground, no easy way to do it.
    We no longer offer the Gator Mulching blades for your mower, you may be able to find them aftermarket, they were Hustler part # 779330.

    hydros work fine now, it seems each time i used it, hydro's were getting better and better

    that sucks about the blades,anyway of mowing by measurements which one could fit?

    It is a stepped blade with a small blade bolt hole, it is hard to find a Gator, I never have and I don't know of anyone who has found one.
