I brought home a new 3046r last month. Only 10 hours on it and it’s got a serious leak coming
from the metal hydraulic line right behind the engine block. And by leak, I’m talking a steady
stream of hydraulic fluid pouring out. Obviously this is a warranty repair and I’ll be calling my
local dealer tomorrow, but curious if anyone has any idea what the cause of the problem is. It’s
so tight back there I can’t even fit my hand down to feel the hydraulic line. I don’t know if it’s
just a fitting, or a busted line, or a seal, or...?

It also spewed hydraulic fluid all over my brand new driveway. :banghead: any good solutions
for cleaning? I applied some dish soap with a brush and will power wash in the near future. It’s
better, but still looks bad. Ugh.

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
