  • Checking hydraulic oil level
  • To check hydraulic fluid it says make sure all cylinders are extended, dumb question are cylinders extended with 3point arms up or down? Iím guessing they are up but just want to make sure. Thanks for the help, Merry Christmas to everyone

  • Unless you have a loader on the tractor, it does not have hydraulic cylinders.

  • Yes with the 3 point up that cylinder is at full extension.

  • You are thinking of the lift piston. That's not a lift cylinder. The position of the piston in the cylinder has no relationship to the position of the lift arms.

  • May I ask if "The position of the piston in the cylinder has no relationship to the position of the lift arms." how are the lift arms raise?

  • Incomplete response on my part.

    The position of the piston in the cylinder has no relation the position of the lift arms and diposition of fluid in the system.

    Lift cylinders fill with fluid reducing the volume in the reservoir. Not so with the lift cylinder.
