    I just got a Walker and it pulls real hard right. When I correct it by pulling the left lever back the machine pretty much stops moving. Also, when I reverse the right hydro has more of a whine than the left and does not move near as fast. I am hoping this is an adjustment and not a bad hydro. Any help is appreciated.

    hate to say it, but a whine sounds like a bad hydro to me. possibly a pump though.

    Look at the lever pivot and that damper spring and be sure those are greased and working properly. Sometimes they can bind up and seem like bad hydro.....but the whine sounds like you are looking at about$600 + installation and there are no repo.
