Exmark Hydro Drive Life Extension Program and Hydraulic Oil Change Intervals

We know lawn maintenance begins with a well-maintained lawn mower, which means you need to have a variety of tasks performed to keep your Exmark machine in the best condition possible. A major task is maintaining your machine’s hydro system. With proper preventative maintenance, the hydro system can deliver long term durability for the extent of the warranty coverage and beyond.

Exmark is expanding their Hydro Life Extension program which increases the hydro coverage guideline on your eligible units by having your dealer perform basic hydro maintenance and service requirements. You can ensure a long and trouble-free ownership experience with your hydro system.

Who Is Eligible for the Hydro Drive Life Extension Program?

All commercial or residential owners of Lazer E, S and X machines equipped with a hydraulic drive system with less than 300 hours at the time of the first service and owners of Exmark’s new Radius E, S and X series units with less than 100 hours at the time of the first service.

Visit Weingartz and we will perform the hydraulic services at the appropriate intervals for your Exmark machine (see below).

Lazer Z E-, S- and X-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system five times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 250, 750, 1250, 1750, and 2250 hours plus or minus a 50 hour window.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 50 hours should be deducted from the change interval for each of these situations that may exist.

Radius E- and S-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system two times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 75 hours plus or minus 25 hours and 600 hours plus or minus 50 hours.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 25 hours should be deducted from the first service and 50 hours be deducted from the second service interval for each of these situations that may exist.

Radius X-Series

  • Change the oil and filters on your hydro system three times during the extended hour coverage guideline.
  • These changes should occur at 75 hours plus or minus 25 hours, 600 hours plus or minus 50 hours and 1100 hours plus or minus 50 hours.
  • Consider additional loads put on your unit with accessories like an UltraVac or if the unit is operated in hilly terrain. If these conditions are present, 25 hours should be deducted from the first service and 50 hours be deducted from the second and third service interval for each of these situations that may exist.

You will be charged for a maximum of .5 hours of labor. In addition to the oil and filters, your out of pocket expense for being in the program is less than $200.00 for the labor (based on a $75.00 posted shop labor rate).
