Hi All -
Traded my Ford 640 for a Case 580CK (backhoe).
It worked great for about 40 minutes (pulled up 2 stumps) & then it blew out a hydraulic line.
My question is, where the heck do you add the new fluid (lost about a half gallon)? And... what kind of hydraulic fluid should I add... the local ADAP has 2 different types of fluid... or does it even matter?
Thanks for your help,

I have a 530 backhoe. I purchase 5 gallon containers of hydraulic fluid from the auto parts store. Maybe takes one to two gallons if empty?? I fill till it comes out the side hole and add alittle more. By the way what procedure did you use to pull the stumps out? Size stumps?

Hey there Plymouth. I am no pro here, but I got an old (1968) 580CK, too. The hydraulic tank is incorporated into the loader frame. On mine, I add the hydraulic fluid in through a vent cap on top of the right hand loader frame. There is an oil level check plug on the same post about half way down (just below the loader controls). There is also a bleeder plug on the front of the loader frame, on the right side. I use the straight hydraulic fluid in mine. I think the second kind of fluid the ADAP is refering to is the hydraulic/transmission type, which you shouldn't need since the transmission is not tied into the backhoe loader on these models (Case model 33). Does anyone know the hydraulic oil capacity on the model 33's ? Mine is over due for an oil change. Good luck, and happy digging.

My 580CK Operators Manual states the "Initial Capacity" of the Model 33 Hydraulic System is 8 US gallons for the Loader only and 19 US gallons for the Loader-Backhoe. I assume that means full-fill from a dry system! The "Refill" capacity is listed at 5 1/2 gallons for the Loader and 11 gal. for the Loader-Backhoe. Not sure what is considered the drain point for a "refill"? Case says to use their TCH Fluid. Transmissions/Converters/Hydraulics
