Well as the regulars know by now I am a cursed person. Thursday the 16th I was cutting down the grade of a driveway to prep it for concrete. I moved all the construction gravel and was working on packed clay and CR-6. The machine was doing fine in digging the material up. However while establishing the construction entrance again I smelled hydruylic fluid. Upon looking left I noticed fluid and the track was wet. I shut the machine down raced to my trailer and started emergency loading procedures. Once you blow the seal, housing or the drive you have seconds upon restarting machine to get it where you want before it pumps the entire resivoir empty. I got lucky and got it loaded. I took it to my dealer and worst case was the final drive was blown and it was a $4800.00 fix. The good news it was the seal and some casing piece. They say its repairable for only $1800.00. Has anyone had this happen before and any advice?
