It depends on what model. Straight 640's and D models have the Hydrualic and tranny on the same stick. From the E models on up, the are behind a little door under the actual door on the right side. You will also find I believe 4 grease points as well.
JD 540D cable skidder, and 2 huskies- just right.

On a 640, sitting in the seat it would be on the right side, open up the engine panel and all the way up by what would be a firewall you will find a dipstick that is both hyd. and trans.
