I purchased my Cub Cadet 6284 a couple of years ago. Unknown to me at the time, the hydrostatic dip stick cable was broke. I have the cap and about 2 of the cable. The level marker and full length are gone.

Can some one take a measurement of their dipstick so that I could make one to measure the level?

A photo of the dip stick next to a measuring tape or the dimensions should work.

I make this request as the part is not available and I was not able to obtain the dimensions from Cub Cadet directly.

If no one replies I think you could improvise by measuring the oil you drain from an oil change. Then add that amount back.

You could make a Test only dip stick from something like a solid copper wire with electric tape as the stopper.

When you know how long it should be you could buy a universal dipstick at an auto store for under 10 bucks and cut to the right length. But it would only be for measurement as it probably will fit the one on your tractor. ....

I had thought about that. And I am kind of doing this with my mocked up dipstick, basically exactly as you describe.

But I am concern, if the current level is too high or low. Also, if I use the refill with the factory amount, does the FEL hydraulics require additional fluid.

So I thought I would ask a fellow owner if they had time to take a measurement. ....

I hear what you are saying.

You could put the loader in position so that all pistons are retracted, turn engine off release pressure in Control, and disconnect the quick connects from the loader, now whatever you drain can be from the tractor only. Measure and put same amount in.

Flaw with that is the last time I did hydro fluid it went allover the place :-( so measuring no so good.

Best of luck . ....
