model #931899 raptor, right side drive is acting weak. decent when cold but after couple minutes operation looses power to that side. tried adjusting linkage and belt replaced. is this drive unit serviceable or throwaway? any help appreicated

You could try changing the fluid and filter. If its gets worse as it gets hotter thats a sign of the fluid going bad.

Yes I'm seeing that now, my bad. My guess is thats its not serviceable then, hopefully others with more experience with those transaxles will chime in.

I would try to find a used low hour unit on E-bay before I tore into it. If the mower was in pristine condition I would consider a new drive unit if it is available...

yes the box store model. not sure on build date, will check when I hit the shop tonight. not sure I would call pristine but is in pretty decent shape.
