    I notice that there are no clamps on the hydraulic hoses going to and from the oil cooler. I'm sure this is the low pressure side but they must be some mighty good fittings to not need clamps to help keep from leaking. They are not leaking yet but I wondered about installing some clamps myself to make sure they never leak. Is this necessary? I sure am enjoying the mower. The cut and appearance is the best I have ever had.

    They are on the low pressure side of the system.
    Clamps are not needed.
    Also remember, you have a LIFETIME guarantee against hydro leaks.

    Thanks PJ, I just wanted to be sure. This is really a well made and engineered machine. My son-in-law is in charge of all equipment at a GP plant and is a real perfectionist. My daughter said he usually can find something he doesn't like about most equip. but she asked him what he thought about her Papa's new mower and he said he was very impressed with it.
