I went outside today to elevate my 2004 vintage US Tower HDX 589, and smelled 
oil around the tower. It appears the Hub City reducing gearbox is leaking oil 
via the input shaft bearing seal. I'm not sure how much has leaked out, because 
I'm not sure how much was in there in the first place.  Have others had such an 
issue, and were you able to fix it yourself? I see what type of oil to put into 
it; certainly just letting it drip is one option, but not a good one for me.
