    Default Checking Trans/Hydraulic fluid

    When checking transmission/hydraulic fluid level should all cylinders (loader, etc.) be fully extended or fully relaxed - IE loader on the ground?

    Should be a drop in the bucket, as only the volume displaced by the rods can affect the total amount of fluid in the reservoir, which is gallons.

    Yes, on level ground, and like the first post unless you have the loader raised there should be no appreciable difference in the levels.

    Thanks for the replys. I checked both ways and it does make a diff. on the dip stick of about 1/8 of an inch - not enough to worry about when talking gallons.
