If you can't find any signs of a leak or seep. I would top it off and watch it closely. May have been that it was not properly filled at the deal? Probably unlikely. It has got to be going somewhere otherwise. Make sure the case vent is not obstructed. I had a Kubota that would start pushing hyd. oil up through the gear shift levers after long periods of hard use. Turns out a mud dauber built a nest in the trans. vent tube. I cleaned it out with a piece of wire and it never did it again. You would think that much oil lost would definitely be very noticable somewhere?

I had a leak related to the backhoe on my kubota after tightning the nut I parked it over some newspaper to make sure I got it. The next day I found that the drane plug was also dripping and was loose. Park it hot over some newspaper it might be worth trying. Just a thought.

If you haven't checked it before then maybe it was low to begin with. Often with assembly the oil will go down from the addition of additional cylinders and hoses. With it still being over the add mark I don't believe that has any thing to do with it getting slower. Your filter which hasn't been changed yet for your 50 hour service might be the problem.

The level also will vary somewhat depending on whether it's checked when the loader and 3ph are up or down. Like Art said some new implements come from dealers with the cylinders charged and some don't. If you've hooked up a new implement (especially something like a wood splitter) it will take quite a bit from the reservoir.

been watchin all day with it parked on cordboard no sign of leaks nowhere.and I check it every 10 hrs, so this has just happened in the last 10 hrs.shure seems strange that the level can be almost a quarter inch low on stick and have no sign of leak anywhere. been told by friend as well as Art that slow 3pt movment is most likely filter.So it looks like I'm off to dealer for trans service productes tomarrow, hope that fixes the beast.that still don't explain the low oil, I'll have to watch closely after I service it.I'll check vent tube while servicing thanks Chief, and thank you all.

That does seem strange. I wonder if it might be leaking only while under load? But even that would be evident. Good luck.

Have you removed or installed the loader or other hyd. impliment recently? Only thing that come to mind is perhaps hyd. displaced air in the system of that impliment lowering the fluid level maybe???? Kind of a stretch.

I doubt there's a hydraulic pump seal problem on a new tractor but you might check the engine oil level. On many tractors a bad pump seal can leak hydraulic oil into the crankcase. That's about the only place oil can get out of the system if it's not going onto the ground or into new implements.
