    Funny, mine doesn't leak a drop, doesn't smell any different than any propane forklift (if it has an odor at all), and loud? Mine is quiet as a church mouse.

    I don't have the band brakes. It appears my machine has the drum brakes.

    In red ^^^^ naw, not how I see it. More like: when you step on the pedal, it releases the hydraulic pressure that applies the brakes.
    The only thing overcoming the spring pressure is your foot. Not...

    In red ^^^^^ what spring applies the brake?...

    In red ^^^^^ what spring applies the brake? Certainly not the main large spring that keeps the brakes applied when there isn't anybody on the machine.
    Because, once I hop up there, I stomp that...

    So, riddle me this: if it did happen to be fouled up brake hydraulics? Why/how would it come and go without me ever letting off the brake pedal?
