Deutz 916 Hydro w/ lift - Refill fluid?

Recommended Posts

New owner to this tractor. Broke hydro hose and leaked unknow amount of fluid. How do I re-fill more than a teaspoon at a time? I know there is a vent port near left rear wheel and the what I thought was a fill tube to the reservoir in the back down low. Cannot get more than a tablespoon of fluid in either. After I replacing the hose and excersizing the cylinder I checked the fill tube (?) for level and had fluid gush out once uncapped. Any suggestions?

Congrats on your new tractor Baumer - you need to lift the vent cap on the left hand axle before removing the rear pipe cap. I use a small needle nose vice grip to hold the vent open and free up my other hand - this also allows quicker filling for the trans with a funnel - you just have to find one small enough or grind one down to fit inside the fill pipe.
Proper level is one inch from the top of the pipe and they recommend using Simplicity multi-purpose hydraulic fluid. We don't need to call the EPA do we? :)

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
