Looks like the previuos owner replaced all of the upper hydrualic hoses to the blade pistons.. they look pretty new and fresh.
However, the same cannot be said for the lower H.P. hoses ( parts manual numbers 48718 and 48687, High pressure assemblies)
These are about 2" diameter hoses.
My question: Should I go ahead and break the connections to have new ones made, is there some procedure, or operation to "purge" the system, once the new hoses are installed?
Is there anything to be careful of, other than expect an oil "bath" for myself!!
I guess I need to drain the oil tank resevoir first. Is there a lower drain plug?
Sorrry, trying to find my way around the manual but it aint all that easy.
