    I have two 2001 Exmark 52" HP's, have not had any Hydro or Wheel problems with them. Bought them new, have served us well for all those years. One mower now has no power on left side. I believe it is either the Hydro or the wheel motor. How do I tell which it is?? Any way to check Hydro for pressure?? Have never had to work on Hydro or wheel motors, so I need advice. Also, can the Hydros be rebuilt or better to buy new one?? Thanks,

    A pump flow test would tell which component is faulty, A flow meter runs in the $350/$400 range. Best to call around to your local shops and see if they have the meter to perform this test, Which ever component has failed would be best replaced due to age/hours....
