How to change exmark hydro fluid and other questions

I've been running Deeres, and this is my first Exmark..How do you change the fluid on these? Do you have to remove the whole tank and the two lines and just dump it out?

On the Deere, with the hydro filter removed the fluid drains out...

I have some shavings and want to get them out of there......I am also concerend about cross contamination and getting metal into the wheel motors?

Do the Exmark tank baffles prevent cross contamination, and the wheels motors are saved by the filter?

if it is an older one just take the filter off and let it all drain out thru the filter base, fill filter up and put it on and fill up the reservoir. If it is a next lazer, you have to take the plate off the bottoom of each side to let the fluid out and it has an internal filter in each side

Thats what I always did on the Deere, but the filter was always under the tank..The filter on my Exmark XS is down low on the right with the tank on the upper left...Will it still drain all out if I just remove the filter?
