If you do hear the hydraulic motor turn, but your sprocket does not turn any more, the engine shaft is probably worn. You can see that the teeth are worn at the connection with the engine shaft and sun gear when you disassemble the final drive. You can test the wear by putting back the sun gear in the engine shaft and turning it. If the sun gear rotates in the engine shaft while the engine shaft does not run, the engine shaft is worn.
Since the sun gear and engine shafts are interconnected, there is a chance that they may also become worn at the same time. Are you wondering whether you should be replacing both parts? See here what a worn engine shaft and sun gear look like or contact us.
There is a strong probability that your sun gear is worn when you do hear the hydraulic motor turn, but your sprocket no longer turns with it. When you disassemble the travel drive and remove the sun gear from the engine shaft, you can see this. If the teeth of the sun gear are still fine, the engine shaft will also turn. If this is not the case, the sun gear is worn.
Since the sun gear and engine shafts are interconnected, there is a chance that they will also become worn at the same time. See here a photo of a worn sun gear and engine shaft.

Your lifetime seal is probably worn if your final drive leaks oil between the engine and reduction side. When you disassemble the final drive, you can see the wear from the thickness of both rings. Both rings become worn because the engine runs. In due course, the seals become too thin and they need replacing.
Another reason for lifetime seal wear can be the final drive not being use long term. Rust can then appear on the ground surfaces.
It is recommended to disassemble your old final drive before placing an order in our online shop, as it will allow you to check the dimensions of the final drive.

If you have one faulty travel drive, the probability is considerable that your travel drive on the other side will also need replacing soon. This travel drive will, after all, have had the same load and will have worked as many hours as the worn one. To ensure your machine does not stop working again soon due to a faulty travel drive, we therefore recommend always ordering an extra travel drive. In addition, ordering a second travel drives will prevent a speed difference between the two travel drives. A new travel drive always runs slightly faster or slower than the current travel drive that has been used for a while.
You will, moreover, benefit from a 10% discount when you order a second travel drive!
