    First Hydraulic Fluid Change

    Going to try to change it out today. Any tips? Should I take the loader off? Leave the loader on and try to get the fluid out of it? Push the cylinders shut on the loader? Any tips would be great. Thanks guys.

    Don’t worry about the loader. If it was contaminated, then yeah, I’d mess with it. But not for a scheduled maintenance interval.

    Make sure to have a large catch tub for the oil. Take your time filling it back up. Maneuver all of the controls, PTO, and steering once filled to burp the air out of the system. Once the air is out, then top off as needed.

    I bought a 5 gallon pan and will have a 1 gallon handy just in case. Seems simple, get fluid hot and let it go. I don’t think I have screens, two filters is what I see.

    Make sure you have all the replacement o-rings and gaskets/seals. Before draining...

    Correct, the new 2-series does not have a suction screen. The manual recommends running it a bit to get things mixed up but don't worry about getting the hydraulic oil hot. If you really want to simplify the refill, measure the amount of oil that you remove. You don't have to be exact but knowing that you extracted X-number of gallons means you can just dump that much back in before starting to really watch your levels. I do the same with the radiator when changing coolant and it really simplifies the refill.

    The new 2-series doesn't need any o-rings or gaskets. Just two spin-on filters.

    The parts listings isn't showing any magnets in the filters. It wouldn't hurt to check though. The Gen-1 2-series had magnets in the suction screen but the new 2-series doesn't have a suction screen. Even with the previous models it seems not everyone had magnets in their spin-on filter. My 2720 did not.

    I'm sure the OP will report back on his findings once the job is complete.
