Well my Lazer Z has some very slow leaks on 3 out of 4 hydraulic hoses. I have been taking pictures and trying to keep a record but it is almost impossible to tell if it is the hose seeping or the conection. I am going to keep a picture record to show Exmark before the warranty runs out and I'll make sure to keep an eye on the oil level. I live in a rural area. Is this a job I can trust the local Exmark/feedstore mechanic to fix properly or should I take it to a larger dealer with a better mechanical staff to make sure all hoses are fixed properly. It will be hard to tell the leaks are so slow if he did a good job for a while. Any secrets to doing the job correctly? Seems odd to have so many leaks or seeping but I got it on the digital camera clean and as it starts to leak. I'm going to suggest putting new hoses on. Is this out of the ordinary to have 3 leaking? It is one year old and has lost less than one quart.
