    Great info regarding the air filter. Once I remove mine, I always take the shop vac and suck out any debris that may be hiding back there on the odd chance it is hiding. That should stop it from entering the intake.

    Kind of hard to trust the mfg's recommendation on hydraulic fluid since many mfg's market and of course recommend their own brand of fluid. And, yes, it costs way more than other brands. Mahindra does. That's pretty convenient.

    Probably the most common mistake I see time and time again! Is NOT using the proper tools for the job. The amount of oil plugs, bolts, etc. rounded. Because the owner "forgot" to use a decent 6 face socket! Is absolutely ridiculous!
    Gents, please keep in mind. Pliers of all sorts, adjustable wrenches and a vast etc. Are NOT proper tools for the job! It's that simple. Let alone the metric hardware being messed up by imperial tools!

    I checked my axle reservoir a week after I got my L3560 when we got it a couple years ago and it was below the check port and added a lot more UDT2 than it be being just under the check port. Same with wheel bolts as some were initially not torqued to the correct value and two were actually loose also. Whether it was the factory or the dealer who knows but check your new tractor out with some real scrutiny because there are generally a few items missed that could damage the tractor. Tractor maintenance like greasing is a pita in the middle of a job but it pays off
