As a rule the Kubota L2800/L3400 do not have a dip stick for the hydraulic fluid. To check the fluid level, find the small round site glass that is on the transmission, left side, just in front of the clutch pedal. This sight glass has a level line on it. If the level is low the fluid might not show in the sight glass. If the level is below the line add fluid. The fill port for the Hydraulic fluid is on the back of the tractor just below the level of the seat.
There may be a plug on the front of the box, roughly half way up. You can roughly fill through this. Fill until fluid dribbles out, work the box through the gears a couple of times (engine off), then try to run some more in.if its the same transmission as the scenic it has the DPO automatic it does not have one I must stress this is a rough method and it should really go to a garage for proper levels / top ups ...hope this helps
Hi, Peter engine and transmission share the same oil many riders are over filling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should always refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add mark.
5. Never over fill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must never be completely full drain as necessary.
7. Your oil site glass must never be completely empty add as necessary.

manual transmissions should have a drain plug on or near the bottom of the transmission and a fill plug near the top of the transmission. Remove both plugs and drain gear lube into pan. Replace drain plug. Fill with recommended fluid through top hole and then replace that plug.
motor and tranny filters and so on. I was looking through my manual on SMJ and on here regarding the amount of fluid to refill in the crank case and from what I have read I am coming up with 1.6 quarts according to the board. However when I follow the instructions for refilling I end up with about 875cc or approx 3/4 of a quarts in the frame spar/motor and about the same in the tranny. I am using Mobil 1 4T in the motor and Spetra Gold gear saver in the tranny (80W). Am I doing something wrong or is it supposed to be 1.6 quarts total in the bike (motor and tranny)?
When draining the fluids I drain all the ports and clean all the filter completely. The first time I filled the frame spar back up I filled it until it came up about halfway in the frame spar ran the bike for a minute and after it settled for about 5 mins filled it back to the half way mark in the sight glass. This totaled 875cc. The next day I saw the oil didnt appear in the site glass so I filled it again. Needless to say it started spitting oil out the vent tube on the way to work so I read up on it and found that I had probably over filled. The instructions I read though stated to fill the frame spar with 1 quart, start the bike and let it sit. When I went ahead and changed the oil again and refilled it I followed this method and again it was too full (over the top of the site glass). Can someone clarify for me the proceedure. The tranny is pretty straight forward but the motor seems to be a bit more complicated. As of right now I have the oil filled with about 875cc and when it starts up the oil comes up in the frame spar about half way into the site glass.
,Don't feel like your the only guy. Overfilling has happened to just about every owner in some way or another until they learn the trick to checking the oil.
I have never had less than 1 qt doing oil changes. It's always somewhere around 1.2 to 1.4 What I do is I lean the bike over to the left and then back to the right to help get most of the oil out. And I let it drip for a long while.
When I refill the engine I always add 1 full quart then start the engine for a few seconds and stop it. Then I top it off to the sight glass.
The rule of thumb being, never go by what the sight glass says if the bike has been sitting more than 10 minutes. Always check the oil right after you start the motor and shut the engine off. Reason being, the oil will drain out of the frame slowly over time so it makes the sight glass inaccurate the longer the bike sits. And every bike is different in how quickly the oil drains out of the frame.
this vehicle has no dipstick, supposed to be maintained by professional only. there is the fill cap on the drivers side, between the fuse box and engine. it is red and more towards the bottom. i imagine you can atleast see the fluid status.
