Lawn Solutions ride on fluids

Picked up my LS ride on Friday afternoon. It came without the owner's manual, which I called and got them to mail to me.

My Hydro resevior is bone dry, but I see fluid in the eye glass. I want to add some to the resivior .... at least to the cold line. What oil is recommended for this?

I would like to know why it was bone dry? Did they have a sticker or warning tags to fill it before use? Running the hydro's low for a short period is not good for them. LS has a great product but needs to get the production side down. The 24" W/B is way late and you here many without manuals etc. Doing it right the first time would make their life alot easier.

It has oil up by the pump and I can see it in the sight glass up under the controls. The plastic resivoir by the motor is what is empty. the cold line is not very high up, but am assuming that it should be filled to the cold line and then might expand as the oil heats up.

What kind of oil do you use for the hydro pump?

Just wondering why the unit is in the shop and how soon after you bought it it had to go to the shop?

Don't know about yours, but my crate was pretty weak. Had mine delivered to my chemical company cause I don't have a fork lift. We didn't even feel comfortable loading it on my trailer for fear the pallet would fall apart. I un crated it and drove it on the trailer.

Probably has no fluids because of shipping? I have shipped equipment before and had to drain all fluids.

Got a ton of fescue renovations to do starting first thing in the morning. Can anyone tell me what the recommended type of oil is for the hydro pump??? Think my ztr's use synthetic 10w-30.
