Has anyone heard or experienced a trans motor shaft breaking?

What would be the cause? Being "too" hard on the drive system? (kids, etc)
Ingersoll 448

Thank you :usa2:

I bought it that way.

The lift arm for the snow plow was still attached, so I assume it happened while moving something with the blade.

I plow in high gear fairly often & sometimes catch myself not coming to a full stop before changing directions.

I imagine if this was done very aggressively, especially while wheel weights were being used, it wouldn't be too hard to reproduce these results.

Luckily for you, it's not a terribly expensive or difficult repair.

Good luck!

If it were solid that would'nt happen. The hollow inside makes it prone to breakage, though I'm surprised that it even happenes. :headscratcher: :wtf:

That might be the "designed" weak link to avoid destroying the unit itself. You have to remeber the world we live in and some of the people who run these tractors. :facepalm:

Seeing that yours is only the second one I have ever heard of, I wouldn't necessarily think that it is a weak link. It's amazing the abuse that some people subject these tractors to without completely destroying them.
