Hot Hydraulics on 4500

Roger Hello, I have a JD 4500 that I purchased in year 2000. It has approximately 900 hours on it. It has the power beyond kit to operate my backhoe attachment. I am experiencing heat from the the hydraulic system especially when I am operating the 3 pth. I should add that I do a great deal of mowing with a Kuhn 6' flailmower which needs the 3 pth. I haven't noticed a loss of lift capability but I am concerned of the heat that is being generated when I use it for a bit; I know that excessive heat can be bad for seals, packing, etc... I can feel the heat radiating from it while sitting on the seat. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks, Roger
