Checking and Changing the Transmission and Hydraulic Oil for tractor

  • To chech the transmission oil, it is important to park the tractor is parked on a level surface and turn off the engine.

  • Remove and clean the small gauge (dipstick) under the driver seat with a cloth.

  • Reinsert and remove the gauge and hold it tilted to check the oil level. In case of low level, replenish the oil.

  • If you plan to use the tractor only to plough or pull trolleys, then maintain the oil level anywhere in the zone marked on the gauge as XX, as shown in the picture labeled ‘B’. if you wish to use the oil in the gearbox to operate any external instruments, for example front blade and tipping trolley etc, then in that case the oil mark should be at the ‘Max’ level ‘C’; as shown in the figure.
