So Im mowing my woods trail and when I finish my Hydro lever seems to be shuddering.  I'm rocking back and forth, trying to get up a small hill, when all of a sudden "POP" I'm covered in hot hydraulic oil.   I see that my hydro fill cap blew off.  What happened ?  Thanks, geo

In my experience when you end up wearing your hyd oil it usually happens when you blow a pressure release but I dont have any idea why it would happen to you as I dont know anything about JD tractors.
