I saw a JD 70 skid steer on CL so I called the owner on it. It's had a replacement Onan engine put in it. it doesn't drive on the left side. He's taken it apart and believes the hydraulic drive isn't working on that side. Says the right side drives good and the hydraulics are quick and strong.
Anybody familiar with these? I've worked with the bigger one's, this small one looks handy but being a Deere I would imagine pretty pricey to fix. I can do hydraulic motor and pump rebuilds.
Any other booby traps I should be aware of?

The 70 was built for Deere by Owatona (sp?) The 70 is the same as the Owatona 330. They used Cessna hydrostatic components and both the pumps and motors were a little weak, especially the early models before adequate filtering. Parts are not easy to get and through Deere very costly. That said, if properly maintained they were a nice loader. Some specialty hydrostatic shops will be a much better source than Deere for hydro parts/repair.
