This is my first post here as a newbie tractor owner and I'm so glad to have found this place!
I purchased my first tractor a couple of weeks ago, a JD 2210 with 400 hours. I just made room in the garage to keep it and removed the 62" mower deck for now. I noticed that there was a little puddle of hydraulic fluid on the deck itself and now showing on the concrete floor after removing the deck. There were several fluid spots in a spread out area on the concrete underneath the middle of the tractor. I looked underneath and sure enough it was dripping from multiple locations! After panicking I had a closer look and finally removed the little plastic access hatch near the brake pedal and shone a light inside. I could see hydraulic fluid dripping down somewhat steadily from the bottom of a round part and hitting the top of the spinning drive shaft which was then flinging it everywhere. I think the round piece is the bottom of the SCU or Steering Control Unit but again I'm a complete newbie with all this. I'm just looking for some feedback from others that are familiar with the JD 2210 and maybe some advice on what my next course of action should be.
Thanks & Regards,
