Default Mini Excavator drive motor rebuild

One of the track hydraulic drive motors of my Kubota KX91 has gone bad. Does anyone on here know of a company that rebuilds them? Is it worth it? I'm in SE Louisiana but can ship anywhere.

Thanks

Might be cheaper just getting a new one from here

^^^^

i thought I blew a final drive motor on my T190. While waiting for the shop to check out the machine I had a few days to do research and was pretty sure I would be ordering a new one from the above shop.

Turned out to be something else and only $2500 to repair instead of $4k.

Sucks any way you look at it however.

Are you sure it's a motor problem, and not a pump problem?

It was the motor.

I bought a replacement from https://www.minifinaldrives.com.

I just hate the thought of scraping the old motor if it has some value or can be easily rebuilt. After I posted this, I found a YouTube ad for rebuilding them. I may send the old motor just to see what they say.

Thanks for all replies
