Customer Question
Can you tell me...

Can you tell me where the hydraulic fill cap is on John Deere 2955?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thank you. A pic or diagram would help.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

We are just looking for what is the right fill cap. We need to add hydraulic oil and can’t find the fill cap and don’t have the manual.
