Are JD Hydro Transmissions usually HOT

I got got into a Hydro John Deere today. It is a 1997 445 with a 60" deck. It is about 600 hours and in beautiful shape to say the least. Nothing seems to function improperly but I ran it with the mower for the first time for about 35 minutes today. After I was done i was just checking it out a bi and put my hand on the hydro transmission cover on the back of the tractor and it was too hot to touch at all. being not familiar with a JD hydro, I am not sure if this is the norm or not. It seems a bit excessive but again nothing slips or operates improperly so I am not sure. the fluid in the trans is clear as a bell. I just do not want to hurt anything if something may be wrong...
