    I have a new Gravely ZT XL 48
    Has the zt2800 transaxles.
    I have 3 hrs on it and noticed the left reservoir tank is a little lower than the cold full line. The manual discusses how to purge when you do a change but doesn't discuss if purging is needed for adding a little.
    So my questions: 1) do I need to add any if it is a little below the line? 2) if I add a little must I purge? 3) should this be low? I don't recall checking it cold but dd remember it was well above the line last week.

    Keep an eye on that level before and after each use. Get a note pad and keep a diary. You could take some pictures before and after.

    Add to the full level line.

    No because you're not causing air in the system. Gravity will cause air to escape from the reservoir. Just like a break master cylinder.

    No, not really. You can top it off, and just keep notes on it before and after. It may not be anything, and stop. But then again it may. But you're on top of it now.

    Good Luck
