    $360 for 50 hour service. How many have done your 50 hour service yourself?

    My tractor just clocked 40 hours so I called my dealer to get a price on the 50 hour service. Figured Iíd let them do the first one. They said it would be $360!!!! I wasnít expecting that. Oil filters hydraulic fluid clean screens and transmission. And run a magnet I assume through where they can for I assume again metal shavings from break in. Do you guys think itís a good idea to let the dealer do all this the initial time or have many done it yourselves and about at what cost. I change my own brakes and my own oil in my vehicles so Iím sure I can handle it once I look into what it all involves. I was just surprised at what it cost. What have you guys done?

    I did my 50 hour service this past Fall. I'm about the same mechanically...I comfortably do brake work on my vehicles, valve checks on my motorcycle, oil changes, etc. The cost of filters and hydraulic fluid (a bit over 3 gallons - I bought a 5 gallon pail at the JD dealer) was easily about $150. So, given the time it took me, a couple hours, I could see the dealer charging $360. If you're thorough, it will take some time. I re-torqued all the hardware, changed the filters and fluids. I bet I had close to 3 hours into it...again, taking my time, doing everything.

    I still need to grease my drive shaft zerk fitting; not sure you need to do that on the new 2025R, but on my "Classic" 2025R, it needs done at 50 hours. I'm at 66 hours and will get to it this Spring.

    Do your own service and save yourself about $200.00 +.

    Plus you learn , how to maintain your tractor, craw under the tractor and get dirty.

    Where and how do they use a magnet on the machine? Just run it through the fluid drains to see if there are any loose particles?

    Don't forget that if your tractor is eligible for the warranty doubling thing they are doing and you don't let them do the annual service, you will lose that. I don't know if that's worth saving a few bucks. A 10 year or whatever it is warranty is pretty great.

    Like others have said it's not hard to do your own service. Just take your time and read your manual.
    It's a good idea to have the dealer do it at least once during the warranty period though. They may see something you missed or know of a known issue and get get it covered before it's a big problem and out of warranty.

    The magnets are already in the screen that you will remove to clean, diesel fuel works great for this.

    that was the exact reason I had the dealer do my first service, and had them write on the receipt that it had been greased, then asked them how they did it so that I could do it the next time, so far I'm 1 of 2 success's
