Was that transaxle a hydrostatic unit (tuff torq) or old school gear drive transaxle ? Cause $50 is a good deal on a hydrostat unit! Heck I'd bite if i could find one (in good shape) for $50 .....

After reading this and posting earlier went and had a peek at the rubi, fluids were all good, but a chipmunk was storing about a pound of sunflower seeds in my rear box and my airfilter box, caught and escorted 6 of them out of my shed last week....

Moth balls and pepper mint spray..... Will help solve rodent issue :-) mice nest under the engine cooling shroud on my snapper 15 ohv.... A nother member mentioned maybe taking his shroud off during certain times of the season, IMO thats a good idea.... IF, you have on going rodent issues, for now I've been leaving the hood up (she's dryed stored)

Was there any damage to the air foam element ??

Luckily enough they didn't chew any wires, got in through the air intake.

I ran into that same issue too, only the pest was those degum @&$'?:!! mud dobbers, i took some galvanized storm door screen, n some zip ties, and fashioned it over the tube, cured that problem, lol, mud dobbers, cause major issues with machines around here, ive even run nto plugged gear box vent lines!! AND yes ..... This is another place honda dropped the ball!! Every (TUBE design ) intake should have been (pre cleaner type) factory screened!

check the oil in everything!
Very True, but Not easily done .... When you have many machines to look after.

Some of the machines i operate have many gear boxes to check 7 alone! on my. Fwd closed station kubota .....SO.... I can understand ... SOME gear boxes being over looked due, to time, oil type/grease, and drive unit use, but! The Power plant?? (crank case oil) those should be checked. Before, and after each use!

This auger angle gear drive, died from lack of grease, a simple couple pumps of mystic grease is all the drive needed!! in the end i FIRED the gofer, but the whole deal cost me $800+ i bullet proofed the new gear drive. Live and learn

Got lube ??

My wood chipper gets a shot of grease every time it goes to work, always better to grease when warm so the grease will run within the bearing.
