hey guys any help would be appreciated. i have a toro zmaster that i think is on its last leg. trying to figure out if worth fixing. When driving on flat land it goes just fine. any type of strain like going up hill the tires start stuttering. it has oil but it does have a leak on one hydro pump. was going to try to change hydro oil and filter see if that helps. any info on could it be pump or wheel motor?

thanks

Don't change the oil,,,,, with a leak you could have air in the system.

Does the oil look like it has foam in it ?

Is the leak at a hose end ?

Fix the leak. If it's at a hose end, tightening it alittle might be all you need to do

Top the oil off with what ever Toro recommends, jack the back of the machine up with wheels off the floor, bleed the system as per your manual......You might have to repeat that a few times......
