My covers were ripped when I received 1396 with 180hrs on it and could never figure out why. The hoses appeared fine where covers were ripped. Had a hose fail at 950 hrs and when repairing had to remove about a 3" section because hose had been crushed! Have no idea how, but the 4 drive hoses on rear of machine (2 each side) had covers ripped the same. Cut a second hose apart and it was the same as hose that had failed. These are 4-braid hoses. The only idea I have is if these legs had been assembled as a sub assembly, maybe they were damaged at factory - the reason I ask if there is others have damaged hoses
