Good Morning, Monktonian:
I'm not sure we are speaking the same language. Hydrostatic to me is a study of fluids as they transmit or exert (as opposed to hydrokinetic) and deals with physics.

What system exactly are you having the leak problem on the Kubota? Is it a hydraulic oil system, diesel oil system, or lubricating oil system?

Hi:Monktonian

I would venture to say Hydrostatic, as in transmission, commonly referred to years ago as a "SLUSH BOX." Commonly used on tractors.

Could be one that uses an oil bath clutch. Therefore, my guess, in either one, would be the fluid is RED, as in Cherry Juice. <Tranny fluid.>

Regardless of whichever type of fluid is leaking, the only way to know is either by it's color or steam clean the machine. Then run it and check for leaks.

Repost your findings. Will try to help you further.
