Default Volvo EC25 losing hydraulic fluid

Hi all, my Volvo E25 has been losing a lot of hydraulic fluid from the undercarriage for months I have to top up constantly. Does anyone have experience of this type of seal repair or can anyone offer their services im in the ME9 area postcode of Kent. Thanks

One of our volvo ec25 had a leak under belly plate was a fitting that hadn't been tightened properly, machine was only two weeks old, we have had to replace rotary coupling seals on one also

We have two 27 one nice and smooth there one deals like digger is bouncing all over the place ,awful to drive, been like that from new but getting worse, build quality on them is poor it's as if it's cavitating oil very jittery to drive, keep an eye on boot that hold bottom pin on swing post is place as they have a habit of coming loose and pin drops out

Looks/sounds like Ovlov have caught a bad dose of complacency from Bamfords
