    I had my HD installed mid December and was finally able to break her in after 12 hours of plowing she is bleeding green fluid. Nothing major. It seems as a hose is loose. Any ideas? other then that. She handled great!

    mine was a defective releaf valve. I had the replacement hydrolics and they hooked the hoses up wrong which I think effed everything up. Works fine now...

    Dealer said it was over filled and that the fluid was coming from the vent. Stated they drained and refilled to proper level. Hopefully the snow is not done and I will be able to run her again this season.

    I also have had the same issue. Mine was a oring that was over tightened. I replaced it and has been fine since.

    I mentioned that to the dealer. And got that it came over filled. And I still have a few drops after the last snow fall.

    That is my plan. I just need to get through the weekend. Sounds like white money falling from the sky this weekend.

    I hear ya guys, my ex80 is just 4 months old, already i've had one new lift cylinder put on it due to the packing leaking terribly, no matter what my dealer did to it, and so is my new one, it's so bad that i have to keep fluid with me, and yes the packing nut has been tightened by my dealer twice.. wtf... But my angle cylinders don't lose a drop, it's definitely frustrating having to check it during a storm.
