    The hydraulic fluid and filter should be changed every
    500 hours of operation. To drain the hydraulic oil
    reservoir, remove the filter and catch the hydraulic oil in
    a pan.
    The filter for the hydraulic system is located under the
    chassis behind the left rear wheel. It is accessed from
    the rear of the unit.
    To Replace the Filter
    1. Unscrew the filter and dispose of properly. Allow
    tank to drain into container.
    2. Place a film of oil on the new filter’s gasket.
    3. Screw the filter on until it makes contact with the
    sealing surface of the filter head.
    4. Turn the filter by hand, an additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn.
    5. Fill the hydraulic oil reservoir to the top mark on the
    dipstick. It will take about 5 quarts. Use Mobil
    15W50 synthetic oil. Start the engine and run for 1
    to 2 minutes.
    6. After shutting off the engine, check the fluid level.
    The dipstick should read the fluid level between the
    high and low markings.
    7. Properly dispose of waste oil.
