    When I first got my Lazer HP, some hydro oil would leak out of the resevoir in the back where you fill it up. It still does, but not as much oil leaks out each time. It's not too much, but it happens everytime I use it. I think maybe the dealer just put too much oil? Is this OK or what? What do you think?

    My Woods hydrowalk used to do the same thing if it was over-filled. Just make sure it has enough fluid (Mobil 1) after it overflows.

    If you look into the reservoir, there is a baffle between the 2 sides. The fluid should be just over the top of the baffle.

    There is suppose to be only enough because of air pressure build up. Don't overfill, most of the older ones have a plug and it made it impossible to over fill (kinda like the rear in a car).

    My Great Dane surfer does the same thing,but only if I mow for extended periods without stopping.I checked with the dealer he said "I" meaning me overfilled it,Thats funny I said you guys changed it last!
