View Full Version : How do I drain the Hydro Fluid??

03-24-2007, 09:42 PM
I am getting ready for the cutting season. I've had my used Scag Turf Tiger Zero Turn mower for 2 yrs now & never replaced the hydro fluid. I bought new oil & filter, but where do you drain it at?? How often should the hydro oil be changed?? I have an Exmark I recently bought used also-how do I drain that as well?? By the way, does anyone know where I can buy a cheap Exmark seat? Do you have any idea how many quarts of hydro oil it would take to refill the Scag & Exmark? What's a good engine oil grade to use on these machines? Can you tell I didn't get owner's manuals for either?!
Any help would be appreciated!

1. punch a hole in filter, drain into cup that filter fits into. Loosen lowest hose and drain into pan or bucket. 2. generally every 500 hrs. 3. try surplus center.com. 4. Measure the oil you drained out. 5. Check with dealer for type, weight oil

There's a good possibility that Exmark gets their seats from Michigan Seat Company.......if so, a replacement can be gotten from Northern Tool for much less than dealer price.
