 Is this normal?

I am new to the operation of my 4100. So far, I have only used the loader. I have been moving large stones and also loam. A few times (twice) I noticed hydralic fluid on my left front tire! I inspected above the tire (on the FEL frame) for a line or fitting that the fluid might be coming from but did not see any in the area. Two questions for the group: Will trying to lift too much weight cause fluid to leak from the hydralic system? Any idea where this fluid may have come from? I am now dilligently checking all fluids, every day and so far I haven't had to add any! This is strange. Fluid leaks from nowhere and the level doesn't change.

The only leaking you should get is from the cylinder itself and that should be very little. When the pushrod is fully in the cylinder, it is immersed in hyd. oil, then when you extend the cylinder, most of the oil gets "wiped off" by the seal, but some stays on the push rod. This should only ammount to a drop every now and then. Lifting excessive weight should bog the engine or lift the rear before the system leaks. I have at times seen oil that I could not find the source and it never repeated. I look at these things like burps. Give it a little working time, and see if it persists. Wipe down anything oily or dirty to track the source if it happens again. Good luck!

Did you check the front axle for leaks.

Kevin, its probably a drop now and then leaking past the seal on the loader's left side lift cylinder....where the rod slides out. Some do it and some don't. Yes, you can replace the seal and probably stop it from leaking, but it won't do anything other than get your tire wet if you do nothing at all. Procrastination won't damage things more, and its just entirely up to you whether you find the leak worth the effort to fix it. A few drops on the tire overnight look like a major leak, but it takes years before you need to add a half quart to the trans-hydraulic oil. Mine has done this from one cylinder for about 20 years; I've been meaning to replace the seal for about 19. It has neither fixed itself nor gotten worse. When I remember, I put a rag over the tire when it is parked for the evening.
