My friend who has a landscaping company has several Cat skid steers. He is not using them right now and told me I could use one if I wanted. Can anyone tell me how to check the hydro fluid and coolant on B and C machines. He is out of town right now so I can't ask him. Thanks for any help.

Thanks, I understand there should be a sight glass on the radiator for the coolant. What about the C series hydro?

On my 262c it is on the right side if you are in the machine to the rear of the cab. I have a question about adding hydro fluid on the 262c the hydro oil cap is just below the sight glass and it looks like you would have to raise the cab to add fluid. Mine was just a little low so I added it to the hydro cooler a little at a time but if I was changing the fluid it would be a slow process.

Canon, that sounds a little crazy to add fluid. Pull out your manual and see what it says. I would doubt that lifting the cab is necessary but see what the manual tells you.
