    Hey Guy’s,

    I have a snapper 52” Z-rider which the Eaton transaxles are no longer supported by Briggs and Stratton. Both transaxles function fine there just quite noisy. Sort of high pitch vibration when engaging forward or reverse. Is there any short-term fix i.e. thicker oil?

    Secondly I am after any contacts that can supply parts, rebuild kit or new transaxles Eaton 771A & 771B, that will ship to Australia for a fair price.

    Any help would be much appreciated cause I love the machine and would like to keep it.

    Cheers Reece.

    Eaton are funny with there hydropumps and transaxles. I do not believe you will find any rebuild infor or even a IPL for Eaton. They like to keep that infor locked up really tight. You may be looking at new units and Eaton stuff does not come cheap.

    I have checked for Eaton IPLs before and never found anything but I tried once again. To my amazement I did find something this time. I was not able to find a parts source for you in Australia. But what I did find may help.
