My tractor is leaking oil on the front wheel right where the hub is turning. It is a Kubota BX1830 2005 model. It will be three years old in May. Power train warranty for three years I wonder if its covered under warranty. I've got 102 hrs on it. I will ask my dealer if its still on warranty

Mjymich,

I don't know if the seals are covered under warranty. I'm just not sure what Kubota covers under its warranty programs.

I've never owned anything with a warranty, including vehicles. Since there aren't any service centers anywhere near me, a warranty does me no good.

From the looks of things, I'd say that your seals are probably fine. More than likely, they suffer from a lack of use. Your tractor is three years old, but only has 100 hours on it. In most cases, the lack of use will cause a seal to dry out and begin to leak.

As a former soldier, I was assigned to the task of exercising our vehicles every month. Every truck had to be serviced....oil checked, air pressures, etc....and then started and driven at least 20 miles each month. We did this to prevent the seals from drying out.

You may need to replace your seals this time, but to prevent this problem from happening to you again in the future, I highly recommend that you use the tractor more often, even if you just run up and down the driveway a few times each month.

Joel ....
