So I have a 1025R with about 65 hours which I purchased new last Fall after we moved to a new property. I have lots of implements and love using it. I developed a slow hydraulic fluid leak on the rear by the pump and rear PTO that I could not isolate since late summer. I had to add hydraulic fluid once to top off the fluid level to an operable level. Two days ago I'm planning to burn several large brush piles that have accumulated over the past year. I go to attach my grapple. I get the third function hooked up and try closing the grapple. Hydraulic line activates but grapple doesn't close. I try several times and nothing happens. On the fourth try I hear a loud "clunk" on the back of the tractor. I turn around and see hydraulic fluid spurting out the back of my tractor. I shut everything down and inspect. There's fluid everywhere and I see something hanging from the bottom of the rear PTO, which I think is part of a gasket. There's fluid also leaking from the top of the pump that sits on the back of the transmission. It's quite a mess. This problem is above my paygrade so I call the dealer. Minimum 5 week turnaround. Probably covered by warranty, but I still pay for transport since I don't have a heavy duty trailer yet. Luckily, I hadn't yet sold my snowblowers, which I was planning on doing. Can anyone tell me what the white thing is hanging underneath my rear PTO shaft?
