Kubota T1400 Lawn Mower - oil drain plug

Nancy I have a Kubota T1400 Hyd Lawn mower. The unit is losing power. I want to change the hyd oil in the unit but can't seem to find the drain plug. Can you help?
jordan Do you have a service manual or owners manual for this machine...

chances are it should be in the book...

Matt If I remember right it is on the left hand side while sitting on the mower. It is on the side of the rear end. Take the back tire off and you should be able to get to it. The fill plug also has a mesh filter in it as well, clean it out and you should be good to go.
Chillidog I recommend you look at some of the other threads on this site related to the T1400H HST. It's probably the most common topic for this machine. If you are losing power, the most likely cause is not the HST itself, but the idler pulley for your drive belt. That pulley keeps the drive belt properly tensioned. If it becomes stuck or damaged power loss will result.

It's also possible to have power loss from low oil level in the HST. Some later models of the T1400H apparently have a mesh filter -- my earlier model does not. The HST drain plug different from the differential drain plug described in the previous post. It is a small allen plug at the bottom of the HST (forward-facing side). You'll have to remove the rear fender to access it. Fill with 10W-30 motor oil. Bleeding air out of the HST is necessary after changing. Be sure to top it up during the process.

Dennis How do you bleed the air out of these?
