    New 3046r with serious hydraulic leak

    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.

    Use some engine degreaser. let it sit then hit it with the power washer.

    Soryy to hear of your new tractor trouble, but good for you, your dealer will remedy the problem. Maybe a factory screwup!

    If you used a brush and soap on your driveway, a few rains and it will be as good as new
