    No leaks on my XR3037HC but only have 70 hours on the clock. Maybe some 3033 owners while chime in.
    Is it possible the front axle was over filled during the 50 hour service. Mine was low when I checked it. I topped it off but didn't overfill. Still lots of snow here so I'd know if I had a leak.

    When I pull the stick on it, it is in the middle of the safe zone. It only leaks enough to mess up the inside of the wheel. The dealer said they had not had any issues that they knew of, but they would replace them. Thank goodness for warranty.

    Warranties are a good thing especially with the costs of tractor parts. It's just the hassle of taking it in, leaving it, then picking it back up. Not to mention being without the tractor for the duration of the repair.
    Glad their going to take care of it.

    The G3033 has a dip stick on the front axle?

    So does my XR3032H. It looks just like a regular cap from an oil bottle. Once you unscrew it, you'll see the dipstick.

    Many differences between models. Mine just has a pipe plug you take out. If it runs out the hole you're good.

    While we're on the subject, there are 2 more plugs out by the wheel. I know the bottom one is a drain but I took the top one out and the oil level was down about 2" , it was the same on both sides. The plug on the right of the pic (towards the center of axle) was full. It appears the plugs out by the wheel are at a higher level than the one towards the center of axle.

    Question is;
    Is that all the same as the axle or should the plugs by the wheel be filled up to the plug?

    I'm having a hard time explaining this, I hope the pics show what I'm trying to ask!

    My axle is made a little different than yours but the oil level where I check mine at is down about 2 inches as well.
