    Your tranny was warm or your temp gauge on the dash was reading warm? The transmission will get warmer the more you work it. Usually the only way to cool it down is either with a Added cooler or just let the truck sit... Usually trucks come with cooler built in either in front of the rad. or in the rad... If the gauge on your dash is reading warm then that would be your motor. If you have the blade up and are running the motor driving it at around 2000 RPM constant it will build extra heat... When you angle it the air is allowed to enter the engine compartment and cool the motor. I almost always drive with my blade angled.
