Absolutely. My 4500 was full of water. I had to do work on the hydraulic tank so I drained the whole system into 5 gal buckets. After about a month (better 2) the water settled to the bottom and I was able to pour the "clean" oil off the top. Better if it's winter and the water will freeze into a block at the bottom, then it is easier.

Thanks Jim, my plug is on the bottom of the loader support rail, I plan to remove it till the water stops and hope I can re install it when oil starts to show, I guess I will have a bucket handy if the plug is difficult to re install.
