Well the Kristi KT3 is unloaded and ready for inspection. So far the entire hydraulic system is completely dry. Not a drop of fluid. The engine oil looks brand new and is at the correct level. Does anyone have the specs on how much hydraulic fluid is in the system? Any idea what weight hydraulic oil to be used? My manuals are on the way so if I dont get to it this weekend then I will the next. The fuel tank should be out Saturday. I am hoping to get it running this weekend and would like to test drive it a bit as well. I will hold off on cutting the belts off till I get a chance to drive it around the yard a bit. I will also be greasing all the fittings Saturday as well before any test run.

Mike,

I believe it takes 8 quarts to bring the tank level between 2/3 and 3/4 full.

Thanks Buck. Chris I'm not being cheap. LOL I have some Kristi manuals on the way that were given to me. No need to spend money on something I will be getting in a few days. I was just in a hurry to get the Kristi running. Thats why I was asking. Speaking of buying stuff whenis your projected release date on the Kristi vidoes? Put me down for one.
