Not an expert here, but that does not sound all that good.

 hyd fluid froth

Doesn't sound normal to me. However, it's possible that the break-in oil supplied with a tractor may not have good anti-foaming properties. I assume that factories don't supply the best oil for break-in. Frothy oil usually is associated with hydraulic performance that may start out normal but deteriorates after the tractor runs for awhile. If your hydraulics seem weak, it's not normal.

Frothy oil often results from clogged filters or other suction line problems, and I suppose a filter on a brand new tractor could clog fast. White (milky) often is water in the oil, but my tractor doesn't have a level bubble so I've never seen oil in operation--only on a dip stick or when draining it. I don't know if plain old frothy might also be described as white. Some hydraulic oil has very little colour to it.

It sounds like the tractor may be going to the dealer soon for warranty maintenance. There's a good chance that standard warranty service will cure any suction line problems. I'd sure describe the problem to the service manager.

In your climate unless the tractor was kepted in a heated garage I would say 50 hours or one year for an interval.

Sound to me like you may have inadvertantly gotten water in your hyd. oil either through condensation or other means....... been playing in any water lately? I the remedy is drain and flush with filter replacement. Or at least drain the bad oil and replace with new and new filters. Check the suction screen as well.

Chief, the tractor has to be at least a couple years old so the chance of moisture in the oil would be good.
