    Just curious we just got a Volvo truck and noticed there’s 2 sight glasses on the front left. Anyone have any idea what they are? I imagine that one is your standard hydraulic tank. What would the other one be?

    The rear section is for the hydraulic brakes, the front section is for the hydraulic tipping and steering.

    You might want to get an operation and maintenance manual. That machine needs care to make money.
