    Default Kubota L3200 hydraulic leak

    I recently became an owner of a new kubota 3200. I now have 19 hours on it and I am having a few problems. The other day, I drove it about 50 feet and drove it onto my trailer. I noticed an oil trail on the gravel below showing the whole distance, especially showing on the trailer. The trail was a narrow straight line. It smelled like hydraulic fluid. I believe it came from the 3 point hitch area only because that is where the hydraulic trail first started. It also looked like it came from the brush mower. I know it doesn't run on hydraulic fluid. But I am not sure. I looked everywhere on the tractor, but found no signs of leakage. The hoses on the FEL are clean. I repeated the same scenario with moving the tractor and going up the ramp of the trailer, but there was no sign of leakage. But there is a strong smell of hydraulic fluid. The trail of hydraulic fluid still remains and I feel that there is something wrong with my tractor. I am intending on calling the dealer to get their opinion and come and fix it. Does anyone have any idea do what happened? I did wash off my tractor and brush mower with a hose the night before. I first thought it was water.

    Your mower may have a gearbox full of oil, and could certainly leak.

    Definitely check level on the tractor's reservoir and top off just in case it did leak and ran low.

    The other day after mowing for a few hours, my L3400 leaked some hydro fluid. After searching for the source and then doing a search on this site, I'm pretty sure it was coming from the breather tube that is located under the seat. I think the system was overfilled by the dealer and is most likely nothing to worry about.

    Since you just washed yours it wouldn't surprise me if what you saw was a water/hydro mixture that was laying in the nooks & crannies and just ran out when it was moved.

    As long as your level is in the sight glass, and it doesnt continue to pour out fluid, you should be just fine.
