    i have a new (10 hrs) ferris IS2000,it seams to make a squawking noise from either the pumps or the belt when side hilling or climbing hills or on a quick take off.belt its tight and in good shape,is this normal? it seems a little beter as it warms up.could this be air in my hydraulics?fluid level is fine.

    Very likely a belt is slipping.
    Could just be wet from condensed water if you leave it outside. You can also try changing to synthetic hydro fluid. These flow easier, particularly when cold.
