    Wheel motor went bad on new Ferris 1500z. 160 hrs. on it and she started leaking away. Dealer had her fixed in an hour and a half. works good now. what a bummer.

    Pretty fast changeout (pump)if that's what they did Drew. Or was it a hydraulic line or something...

    I just had one go on a JD Quik Trac. 100 hrs. Took a week to change out, but I had a loaner.

    I think hes talking about the wheel motor that is what the wheel is attached to down below the hydro pumps. Bolt on part I think, maybe welded on.
