    lately my scag had been acting up when the mower was usied for 20 moinutes or so. it would start humming/growling on the left side and drag. sometimes the left hydro wouldnt move and the right would. if i let it sit, it will work fine for awhile.
    the fluid appears to be clean and full.

    i tried to run earlier and the left dint move or make any sound for abit then it start moving but humming/growling.

    dont know if this helps, but the left side gas damper keeps falling off.

    Sounds like the system may be sucking air, Check all hose connector fittings for tightness. Dirt build-up around fittings is a sign of leakage.

    today i found alot of fillings in the resovoir tank by using a magnet. I was told that the right side should be okay since it hits the filter first. would this be correct? im planing on flushing the whole system too.
