    First Hydraulic Leak

    Hi Everyone, I have a '17 3039R with 32 hours and I lost all hydraulics today. I see the leak, its near a box (presumably a pump) next to the rear passenger tire. The fitting seems tight, will remove tire and investigate in the AM. However, if I do find it simply loose, and refill the hydraulic fluid (yes - with JD fluid, I have 2 gallons on hand - hoping that is enough) is there anything else to check for once I refill it?

    Thanks guys!

    Jim

    Nope... just tighten any loose fittings, fill to the full mark and run it - continuing to check for leaks and verifying fluid level.

    That should be covered under the 6 year drive train warranty. I have the same tractor and the same year model. Is that box you're talking about a junction block?
