    Default Leaky cylinder

    I am new to tractors and have a kubota B7500. The front end loader cylinder has a leak. I have read the operators manual and don't see how to bleed the lines to take off the line pressure before I can take off the cylinder to get it fixed. Do I just drain some of the fluid from the transmission to relieve the pressure in the lines?

    With the the engine off make sure the loader is all the way down by working the joystick around in circles a few times. That will bleed the pressure off the lines. Have some duct tape or string to tie the hose ends up to avoid spillng any more fluid than you have to. Have a shop rag or two to wipe up, but you really won't loose much more fluid than is in the cylinder if you are careful.
