Well. I have 10 hours on my new 1025R and noticed a spot or two in the grass where it appeared to have leaked hydro fluid.. I walked back down to the tractor and sure enough I found Hydraulic oil on the back right corner of the mower deck ( as your sitting on the seat ). I took a look around and noticed it seems to be coming from the loader control and running down the wheel well.. I checked the fluid level and it was a little bit high but it was also warm and wiped up the remaining hydro oil.. I am going to check that again when I get home today to make sure the level is still good. Yesterday when I used the tractor I didn't notice anymore oil? is there a type of overflow or relief up on the control / loader joystick? Don't know the " tech" name for that YET.
OK. I just got off the phone with my sales guy at my local dealer. He said they have seen in the past where the factory missed a rubber gasket / oring in the connection lines for the loader control.? But more likely it is due to the tractor purging some unwanted hydraulic fluid. Told me to keep an eye on it and if I needed to call in for it again they would either come and pick it up or fix on site.
