Toro hydro problem

I have had my Timecutter ZX stored for about 2 months now, and found a little plow in my backyard. I went to fire it up yesterday, and it ran but when i tried to drive it the right hydro wouldn't work I could not go straight or turn left. The temp has been in the low 30's. So, I was wondering what the problem could be. Could the right hydro be frozen? Or could it have just completely failed? It wasn't leaking or anything, and it is a sealed unit so you can't check the fluid or change it or anything.

Check to see if the bypass is loose on the problem hydro.

Which is the bypass? There are no tubes really running to it.

That would be, "Remove and Replace"

As in, remove it from your equipment inventory, and replace it with a real piece of equipment.

Yewp, I've always realized I was using junk. I have tried numerous times to replace it, but parents think it is fine, and that there is no difference between commercial and residential grade mowers. they won't even let me explain it.
 
Like most of the other toro z's, the valve is under the seat on the side of the pumps. When you move the right stick, does it have any resistance, or does it move real easy, like there is no pressure behind it?
