Hello there,
My name is Aleks and I have a small company for Carpet And Upholstery Cleaning in Nice , France. I have Hydra Master truck mount model Spit Fire 3.2. We bought it in 2007 but until now We have 100 working hours on it. Because of some reason I have oil leaking problem on the bottom side like you can see on the photos. Any ideas what can be the reason for that?
Thank's in advance!

One picture didn't come through, but I'll give it a go. Since it is straight up leak in the picture, does it have a motor oil drain plug on one side and a drain hose on the other? Check the tightness off each and the integrity of the hose. A 10 year old drain hose maybe worn and need replacing, judging by the picture it looks like it's a leak really close to the bottom of the motor.
