    My 950 is throwing a warning of low hyd oil ? Oil is full and I just replaced the filters , wondering whats involved in getting to the level sensor ? I see a sensor on the lower region of the tank , looks more like temp by location ?

    S/N makes a lot of things easier but if you can answer the questions above regarding which warning lamp is lit and whether the SERV CODE icon is on we can make a start on helping you.

    If it is definitely #12 then that light is for hydraulic oil temperature, not level.

    Still need an answer regarding whether the SERV CODE icon is lit up or not.

    OK, so it is temperature and by the sound of it the alarm is genuine. Approximately what temperature are you seeing at the filter.? What does the hydraulic tank temperature look like.?

    Nige , I found the level sensor and replaced it . Sure enough that was the culprit . temp was'nt that high in the tank zone .
    Once I unplugged the sensor it fired the alarm so I knew I was on the right track .
    THANK YOU!!! for the input ! I lucked out , milton cat had sensor in stock in milford , ma
    I messed with pics a bit this morning but wasn't able to get them out there? I don't rule the interweb that's for sure !
    Now to figure out why the 225 stalls a relief valve when I croud in and curl bucket ? But not always ??
