Hydro is Slowing when turning.

I have a JD HD 45 and I just traded up from a belt drive. When I hit the break lever to go right it slows way down. To the point where I think it may stop. Not so bad when pulling a left turn though. The hydro lubricant is at the right level, so what could it be? I'm new to the hydro system so I'm a little green on the mechanics of it. Should it be slowing right down?

Thats right, It slows down when hitting the right break to turn right, but isn't to bad when pulling a left. It pulls a straight line OK, don't have a problem there. The hydro lubricant is at the right level. No leaks it seems.


The machine is new. I take it you mean the air filter right? I have had the machine for about 2 weeks now.

Thanks guys
