    When my Ferris is cold the wheel motor on one side is very weak, improves slightly when hot. Changing fluid and filter didn't make any difference. Is their kits to rebuild these motors or do they need to be replaced.spring is coming so its time to get the equipment ready.:canadaflag:

    Unfortunately, you have to replace the wheel motor. I have a snapper pro that has the same problem. Most of the problems came from model years 06-09. The problem is caused by dust. After the fix, blow the mower off everyday.
