    1025R Break in?

    Dealer told me to refer to my manual, but I canít find any literature in it concerning break in. You guys probably have gone through this 175 times, and I canít figure out the search feature on the forums here because Iím retarded, so...discuss pleeeeeez. I already put 4 hrs on it

    The only break in I know of, and which is a subject that has been debated about on here many times. Is whether the Yanmar engine uses break in oil. Nobody seems to know for sure. The manual used to say change the engine oil at 50 hours. Now it says change at 200. Same engine, different date of purchase. It could take several years to hit 200 hours and that just doesn't set well in owners minds. So the debate is, if you change the oil early, should you be putting break in oil back in or not? So far as I know, nobody has been able to document anything conclusive about what to do, except follow what is in the manuals they got, in the year they bought their tractor. I just turned 50 hours on mine. I've just been using it normally from day one and haven't worried about what speeds or time running. I was thinking about splitting the difference. Like changing the oil at 100 hours.

    If I remember right my 2016 1025 said change hydro fluid and filter screen at 50 and oil around 100. I believe a lot of us did both around the 50 mark. Now my new 2025 and i believe new 1025 say 200 hours like mentioned.

    Iím going with my Manual becuase im lazy lol. If i feel like doing it early or i felt i was really rough on it I will do it sooner. I know it wonít hurt to do it sooner.

    Do you mean engine break in

    According to the manual you are supposed to vary RPMs for the first so many hours (I think like 25). Both of my tractors went straight to work right from delivery. Old school diesel mentality is run them the way you will be using them.

    Just talked to the service manager at the dealer. He said go ahead and run it as long as I put load on the higher rpmís. Basically not to run it full throttle unless itís under load. No joyriding around or sitting there wide open until the first oil change. Which is like 100-200 hrs. I forgot but donít have my manual w me. Actually he was more concerned about retorquing the lug nuts and loader bolts at 10 hrs because they tend to loosen up

    In my opinion, modern engines don't really require "break in" anymore. There used to be a whole set idea of push-it-hard, slow-it-down on the rpm's to help seat the piston rings. That is no longer valid for automobiles, so I doubt it's different for any other engine. I wouldn't worry about it. What I WOULD do is change your engine oil early on (no later than 50 hours) and change the hydro fluid before 100 hours. Of course, I didn't change my hydro fluid until 250 hours (6 years), so who am I to judge....
