MF 135 hydraulic/gearbox oil level

    Hi guys,
    So I got the tipping hose fixed on my 135 , it leaked a bit when it burst but not that bad. When I dip the gearbox with the dipstick I get a low reading when cold & full reading after any amount of driving & using lifts.
    When should the hydraulic oil level be read? Cold, hot, lofts up or down? Anyone know the "manual" recommendations?

    My opinion would be cold, with the lift down. I'm surprised there's such a difference between hot and cold.... Obviously, make sure the tractor is parked level when checking....
