Welding man.
I purchased mine from a guy in Kentucky, 300 miles away, ebay.

It has a 20 Hp Kohler commando. The left cylinder spark plug was carboned up. Only hitting on one cylinder. Changed plug. The left cylinder wouldn't burn cleanly. There is only one carb with no adjustments. It took me a while to figure out the carb was dirty. There are 3 tiny holes in the venture. I took compressed air. Blew out the holes and it runs very cleanly, white plugs. Every time it runs a little rough, I blow the carb out without taking anything apart, just have to remove air filter.

I do my own repairs, however if I run into something I can't handle I call Terramite. They are very helpful. So if they can't help, I'll give you a shout.

I change the oil in the engine every 75 hours and the hydraulics every 300 hours. The hydraulic oil looks like new. The engine oil needs changed.

George make very sure that you are using the correct oil in the hydraulic system and it is NOT R and O hydraulic. Friend of mine that runs a plumbing business blew a hose and refilled it with R and O. Wasnt't but a short time I had to comletely rebuild the Hydrostat unit-not cheap.

welding man,
There is a sticker on terramite that says use only 10w30 or 10w40 in hydraulics, anything else will damage it. I change it every 300 hrs like the book says. Thanks,
