    Default Wheel fell off

    I was doing a little work this morning breaking in some new trails for my kids and their dirtbikes, I notice 4wd stops working, I back up, and the wheel falls to the ground. I did hear a snapping sound just before the 4wd stopped working. Any ideas on what I might have broken? Thanks.

    Okay, Legal disclaimer: Old but not senile, definitely do not have the answer to everything!

    Thats the hub or stub axle shaft depending on what you call it. Might be interesting getting parts for that?

    Bearing failure followed by some catastropic failure, but need to get it all cleaned up to figure out what really happened. Doesn't look like it was due to a lack of lube, but quality of lube might be in question because it looks like a bunch of, I think the technical term is, "crud".

    Thanks guys, it's a broken axle, I was pushing it pretty hard, which isn't at all unusual, but parts are coming, they are actually very easy to get. All the parts I need, just under 150 Usd.

    Bummer. Just curious, do you have loaded tires or a hefty ballast box on your tractor?

    I was told, not having those puts an undue stress on front end axles.
