    Left hydo on my scag started acting funny today. Only 400 hrs. Lost a dampner last year and the hydro became real touchy. I cant remember the side though. Seems to be lacking power. Its the left side. If if make a turn at the end of a pass it acts normal, when I get back up to speed it wont keep up with right one. Any help would be great.

    If the problem gets worse as the oil temp warms up its probably the hydro. If you have the integrated hydro's get ready to drop a load of cash because you have to buy both the pump and motor as they are buikt into one and usually not servicable.
