The main hydraulic pump for the John Deere 35D excavator is located on the right side of the machine near the rear of the engine compartment. It consists of a gear pump driven by a drive shaft connected to the engine flywheel. The pump has two hoses attached to it: one hose carries high-pressure oil from the pump to the control valve while the other hose carries low-pressure oil from the control valve back to the pump. If either hose develops a leak or becomes damaged in any way, it must be replaced immediately.

john deere 35d excavator throttle problems and solution
The John Deere 35D mini excavator is a great machine that can really add to the productivity of your operation. However, when it comes to old technology, there are a few things you need to know.
If you’re looking at purchasing an older J35D, here’s what you need to know and how to avoid the potentially expensive problems that come with it.
When John Deere made the 35D, they went with the same hydraulic throttle control system that they’d been using for years on their backhoes. The problem is that this system requires a cable throttle control and over time, these cables can wear out and start to give problems.
You might think that this isn’t a big deal — after all, you probably have a backhoe in your fleet already and it uses the same type of cable. But these machines use different parts, so you can’t just swap them out if something fails. It’s not as simple as just going down to your local John Deere dealer and picking up a new one either.
