Hydraulic oil drip but oil levels are full and was wondering if anyone has had this. It’s only got 76 hours on it
Not sure. I didn’t notice it until I moved the tractor. It wasn’t very much. About three spot about the size of a quarter but it does smell like hydraulic fluid. The loader isn’t on it. I can’t see anything anywhere.

Not to sound tacky, but crawl u Der it and look up. Or look where the drip is next time before you move it.

Ok, we've had our fun. Welcome aboard. Put paper or cardboard under it. Then look straight up from the drip spots. A couple of areas to look at: the lines to the oil cooler - apparently it's too much trouble for the assembly guy to tighten the hose clamps. And hydraulic fittings, especially around the quick couplings.

Good luck.

My 2380 leaked the first time I mowed the 2ac of lawn in 4WD.....I figured out the front axle "vent/fill" bolt was slightly loose and then when things got hot, it peed out from there onto the garage floor.

This hasn't happened to me, but it's VERY common for your 4-port quick connect hydraulics for your loader to leak out those flat face couplers, then dribble down onto the floor.

It was a Corvair that was parked there. They leaked oil the day after the oil was put into the engine. It was the way that GM provided rust-proofing of the engine's lower shrouding.
