The axle comes out of the housing.
The right side quit working. I ran some tests and replaced the hydrostatic pump on the problem side, changed the filter, flushed the system. The new pump didn't fix it. So I sent it to the local dealer.
But you are right about the local dealer being a "problem". I talked to the local dealers shop foreman who made this statement. "We've got it up on blocks and we are looking at it. We've run some tests and they all point to the hydrostatic pump. We have to get some more guages from the head office and might have to call in an expert."
I've been in touch with New Holland a number of times on the Axle problem. But I will keep calling.
I've also been in touch with New Holland on the hydraulics problem.
I am not sure how much you want to know about this deal? This brand new LS-190 had hydraulic problems within a month after purchase.
