    My walker was cutting fine and all of a sudden, it started to spin in a circle. I think my left hydro went out. I cant complain it has over 2000 hrs on it. Anyone know where I can get a used hydro from? Any help is appreciated!!

    It's probably something very minor. Hydros don't usually fail suddenly.

    If someone doesn't diagnose the problem tonight send me a pm tomorrow and I will get you an answer.

    Take a look at the linkage to be sure it isn't bound up. There is a spring loaded device hooked to one side of the actuating linkage that might need some WD and air on it. The rod that the actuating arms that you drive with can bind up on its shaft also so make sure that is free . Make sure that the pulley on hydro side that is failing is still tight on the hydro shaft.
