||My Parents have a C317H that is used for sweeping sidewalks. The only atachment is a 5' sweeeper and a hard cab. It only gets 3 or 4 hours a year usage for clearing snow off sidewalks at small housing complex. yesterday one of the new employees tried to use it to clear the first dusting of snow and stalled it out in the middle of the street. Tried to tow it WITHOUT disengaging the hydro trans, only pulled it 2 or 3 ft before he stopped. We were able to start it and drove it back to the garage but overnight it started leaking trans fluid. The mechanic who maintained this machine no longer works here and nobody knows what kind of fluid or how to know when its filled. Hoping he did not do too much damage, but will need to add fluid in order to get it on trailer to take it to shop. This tractor was bought at auction with sweeper and hard cab (have about 6500 ft of sidewalk to clear) but all yard area is done with small ztr mower, have never put mower deck on. Our routine maintence is a yearly oil change and monthly starting/running to keep battery up. Also use stabilizer in fuel. Any info along with place I can download service manuels would be a big help.
Going to have someone pressure wash rear end and try to determine where it is leaking from, but will probably just take it to shop (nearest JD dealer is 30 miles away) so we have it for next snowfall. Thanks, Steve
