 Damage to the Hydro

Looking over everything on my JD4100 after purchase, everything was top notch.I also purchased the 410 loader with the unit, but for delayed delivery reasons, I didn't have it for about a month. Even after I took delivery, I haven't had the time to use it much. Well, last week I checked the Hydro oil. Maybe I'm an idiot, but I never thought about checking the Hydro oil after connecting the loader for the first time. The loader sucked about an 1 1/2" off the full line of the dip stick. It took a little over 2 quarts to bring it back to the full line. I called the dealer to ask him if I did any damage, and he said that as long as I was still getting a reading on the dipstick, I hadn't done any damage. But that I should fill it ASAP. Half of me is upset that the dealer didn't tell me this would happen, and the other half thinks I should have known better. With our current Desert weather conditions, the unit has only seen about 3-4 hours of use since this initial connection of the loader. My question is: Did I damage the Pump or Hydro? With only about 4 hours on the meter with the loader,and I feel that I haven't used it hard, I would like to think all is still well...

 Damage to the Hydro

MLS,You shouldn't have any problem with the Hydro. Given the fact that you stated the tractor hasn't been worked hard AND the fact that fluid was still showing on the stick, you shouldn't have any problem. The biggest problem with low fluid is the heat that would be generated under hard conditions. If your fluid is still the color of new fluid, everything should be OK. If it looks burned, then I would get it checked out. It probably wouldn't be necessary (given your stated usage,) but you might consider changing the HST fluid filter. This would eliminate any contamination that might have gotten into the system from a "new production" loader, in addition to eliminating any normal "break-in" wear of the HST. As I said, it shouldn't be necessary -- but if you want the peace of mind, it wouldn't hurt. At any rate, you shouldn't have any problems at all. Just remember to check your fluid level anytime you start using a new hydraulically operated implement. Good Luck -- enjoy your new 4100!

Ditto. You didn't hurt it. The heat would be the only problem, and you didn't work it long enough to hurt it.

My opinion you did zero damage. Your dealer is right you had some on the dipstick. Maybe if you ran it for hours and hours is high heat but I still doubt it. I will probably get fried for this one---but change your hydro fluid and filter the first 50hrs. And CAREFULLY clean the crap off the pick-up screen. The Deere manual does not suggest a 50hr. service but TWO shops I called do recommend it.

Thanks guys,I think your right, I agree with the initial 50 hour fluid change, regardless ofJD's manual recommendations. The fluid smells new, and still looks nice and pink. At the rate of our rainfall, I'll have a next to new tractor 20 yearsfrom now. Planting anything right would be fruitless. Well, guess I gotta finishspreading that 3rd dump truck load of mulch.
