    Some have had problems with wheel motors on Super Z's. I imagine every company has a few bad ones. Most of the major ZTR manufacturers use the same basic brands of wheel motors but I would guess yours is a White.

    Basically what I am trying to find out is can I rebuild this one or do I have to buy a whole new one? And yes it is a white

    How long have you had it? Might be a covered repair and in that case, all they do is remove and replace.

    I'm sure it can be done but a replacement is usually the option taken. I rarely hear of a rebuild. Gene GLS replaced several on a Super Z before switching to a different wheel motor (Two Hustler ATZ motors I believe).

    You should be able to order parts for these either through your dealer or through a White Hydraulics distributor. You should be able to PM me for more info.

    I have the atz motors on my 2760. All I can say is, wow! If your machine is in good shape and you plan on keeping it for a long time... Consider it. They have AWESOME torque.

    My Gravely dealer(s) told me that the white wheel motors on my pro 200 were not rebuildable. What a Crock! I went to Advanced Fluid systems (Lancaster, PA), and they rebuilt the unrebuildable (wow, I just invented a new word!) for $ 350.00, and Gravely wanted $1000.00 for new parts.:hammerhead:
