Doesn't the owner's manual provide instructions for this routine maintenance procedure? I would be surprised if it does not.

Most in my area sent winterdiscount cards around $175 gets your mower washed,all fliids and filters changed and sharpened blades. You can do it your self for about $70 including oil and filters all at napa

I would strongly advise you not to try and change your hydros yourself. It is a process where you have to manually empty it all out and everything. We charge 89.95 plus parts (oil and filter). Definatly not something that you would want to try unless you knew exactly what you were doing.

What is so difficult about emtying the oil, unscrewing the filter, filling the new filter all the way up w/ oil(letting it soak in), and filling the mower up w/ oil. How difficult can it be? I just changed the hydro oil on all 3 of my TT.
