    hydraulic fluid

    is it weird that my 2320 is low on hydraulic fluid already? ive only had it for about a month. its not leaking, and ive only had the loader off about 4 times so i can imagine the couple little drops that come out when you disconnect/connect the hoses did it.

    when i look at the little glass gauge, on a level surface, machine cool, i dont see anything at all.

    gonna fill it up per the operators manual but im just wondering if it came from the dealer low, i didnt look at it when they delivered it.

    It is possible that the level was low on delivery, but not likely. Do you use any implements on the rear hydraulic that may be leaking? I would correct the fluid level and monitor the situation.
    Thanks,

    I would think there is a slight possiblility that you may have just worked out all the air in your systems. Along with the fact it could have been delivered on the low side. I would not think it unusual to top it off.

    The very same thing happened to me last June when I received my new 2305. I spent a day pushing brush with my FEL and at the end of the day my level was low. Being my very first tractor I was very concerned. I called the Mechanic who gave me the "This is how you use your tractor" talk at the dealer and he said the exact thing Randy did and gave me a 1/2 gallon of Hydraulic fluid to take home with me.

    I'd wager on the air lock too. I had something similar on my new 2305 when I first got it. One of the coupling nuts on the FEL was loose and lost some fluid. Dealer maintained it had been checked prior to delivery (started, used FEL, etc) and level was fine. Dealer gave me some to top it up, but it began to leak from the vent on the tranny. They figured it was probably an air lock, because it wouldn't show in the glass when it was topped up. However, they played it safe and replaced the vent under warranty as they had experienced the same thing on several models (faulty trannie vent). Replacing the vent cured my problem, fluid now shows correctly, but it just as easily could have been an air lock.

    same situation on my 2320, it was delivered low. Received it in May 2010 and it was not until this past spring when I topped it off, just never got around to really checking if it was low.
    took almost a half gallon to get things topped off. Just can't trust anyone now a days.

    The more I think about it, my dealer specifically told me to keep an eye on it for the first few weeks as this is standard operating procedure. Now it is habbit to check it regular. You have to keep in mind there are a lot of nooks and crannies in that system to get the air out of.

    i topped it off. my dad said that it could also have been that it was filled without the loader on it. then it took some to fill the loader cylinders. either way its all good now. thanks for all the advice.
