Hydro pumps

One of the mowers has started to hesitate while turning, vibrating and shaking mower. Only happening while squeezing left handle. The right is fine. Anyone have an idea what this may be? Pump going? Air in lines? Wheel motor? Its an Exmark walk behind, 52 with hydro .

There are (2) Hydro Pumps,One for each side.You could have a faulty relief valve either broken spring or debris in the valve causing it to stick open.Check the bolt on the dampener.GL

Not to be insulting but start with pressure washing it and then drive it around and look for a leak . Simple stuff first. Fluid levels belts control lever adjustment ETC. I have a 92 gmc that the oil cooler lines leak it wasn't so obvious when it first started happening and I was down 3 qts on day. Inspected and it is still leaking just check the oil before using it for trashouts. Found out it is a really common issue. I LOVED electrical when I used to wrench. I'd look for the aftermarket stuff that was hacked in and 9 times out of 10 that was the problem. Sloppy work or too much load or my fav was a trailer hitch harness that was rubbing on the frame only when it was wet out and you turned left.
