I own a 445. Mine has a screen which is cleanable
under the starter. I have cleaned by taking off
two bolts on cover and washing out screen.
I fill the hyd. system through small plug just
in front of gearshift. You will need to have
the right funnel to fill here without spilling.
If tractor is left in weather I was told hyd.
fluid will get milky overtime. I leave mine
out most of time and it does pickup moisture
so I watch and keep changed. I know of no other
hyd. filter but there may be one. This has been
a very reliable tractor for me. One thing to
watch on these is power steering pump leaking into
crankcase. I think this is common problem on these. I fixed mine by replacing seal. It is some
work to remove pump, but not real bad. This
tractor has two hyd. pumps on front of motor
just under injection pump. The larger one that
pionts to front is pump for lift and tractor hyd.
The smaller one bolted opposite is the power
steering pump. Follow your hyd. lines out and
you will see. Watch crankcase level closely, if
you gain in crankcase then check dipstick on hyd.
to see if you loose there. Then it could be one
of these pumps leaking into crankcase.
Hope this helps.
