Distinguishing Your Yard Truck Transmission Fluid from the Hydraulic Fluid

We had a call from an Ottawa owner not too long ago who was having an issue with his transmission. Chuck asked him if he had checked the transmission fluid.  He replied that he was looking at the tank and it was full. Chuck explained to him that the tank he was looking at was a part of the hydraulic system and filled with hydraulic fluid and was completely independent of the transmission. We did not have any further conversations with the caller and so we are pretty sure that the addition of some transmission fluid fixed the problem.
