Have a 430 Steiger and when going down the road it will spit out some fluid out the breather on the reservoir under the steps. The level is also much higher after going down the road for some reason. Tractor was recently serviced by the dealer and it is in range but the previous owner had a spot chiseled by the sight glass for the correct level I assume. Never had this issue before. Any ideas? Thanks!

The problem arises when you check the hyd level after the tractor has been running, but not fully warmed up. The diffs will be full of oil, and will show a low level. Oil is added, and then once warmed up, the oil returns to the tank and overflows. Make sure the level is checked when the tractor has been working, and then shut off for a minute or two.

They make a update for this problem. I believe it is called a "surge tank" that mounts to where the breather is on the top of the reservoir. Our TJ480 had the same problem so we installed the surge tank. It will still do it if someone over fills the reservoir.
