Telehandler Transmission Oil Level Check

Tech Tips - Jan 18
In order to prevent premature transmission failures, transmission fluids and levels should be checked daily. Here’s a simple way to check the oil level. Consult the machine’s Operator Manual for specific machine operation hours.
  • Apply park brake, shift transmission to "Neutral" and lower forks or attachment to the ground
  • Check transmission oil level with engine at idle and oil at normal operating temperature
  • Remove the transmission dipstick (1) and check oil level. The oil level should be within the "HOT" zone (2).
  • If oil is low, add hydraulic fluid to bring oil up to the "HOT" zone
  • Replace transmission dipstick
