Most all hydraulic attachments leak down it is normal and not 260BH specific. Some do leak down faster than others. I block mine up with wood or concrete blocks when I disconnect from the tractor for easier hookup later. :thumbup1gif:
First time I have left my BH off for any extended amount of time (three days), it leaked off until the frame was on the ground. Is this normal, did I do something wrong or is there a problem?

Mine does the same thing. I consider it completely normal also. The fact that it goes to the ground really has not cause any issues with me. I just pick it back up with the outriggers when I'm re installing the backhoe.
As I have finally learned to duck to the left going into the shop to miss the ROPS... I was beginning to learn to rotate my a$$ sideways to miss the lowered stabilizer which seems always just about hip bone high, but of course I forget. "OW, $#&^!"
I now have a nice piece of yellow painted dog chain w/2 hooks that go between the stabilizers. :good2:
