The transmission and rear end are separate reservoirs. The hydraulics draw fluid from the rear end. Many people check the transmission fluid level with the transmission dipstick, and think they"ve checked the rear end fluid level as well. Just in case this is your situation:

There are two small SQUARE HEADED fluid level check plugs on the right hand side of the trans and rear end.

As you are seated on the tractor, the transmission check plug is above your right toe.

The rear end check plug is behind your right heel. Difficult to see - you may have to squat down to see it.

These are small SQUARE HEADED pipe plugs. Pull them out and add fluid until it comes out of the hole.

Did this problem just happen or has it been getting worse? What temp is it outside? Will it lift the implement at all or just very slow? If it's cool outside and you have 90 wt hyd fluid, that could be your problem. 134 hyd fluid will give instant result in cold temps.

If it is a four cylinder 4000 take the fill plug out and with a good light and trying to lift an implement on the lift arms see if fluid is coming out the open end of the ram cylinder.

If it is you need to replace the ram cylinder piston rings.
