I brought home a new 3046r last month. Only 10 hours on it and itís got a serious leak coming
from the metal hydraulic line right behind the engine block. And by leak, Iím talking a steady
stream of hydraulic fluid pouring out. Obviously this is a warranty repair and Iíll be calling my
local dealer tomorrow, but curious if anyone has any idea what the cause of the problem is. Itís
so tight back there I canít even fit my hand down to feel the hydraulic line. I donít know if itís
just a fitting, or a busted line, or a seal, or...?
It also spewed hydraulic fluid all over my brand new driveway. any good solutions
for cleaning? I applied some dish soap with a brush and will power wash in the near future. Itís
better, but still looks bad. Ugh.
