    John Deere Easy Change™ 30-Second Oil Change System



    Hmmm, so it's a filter and partial oil change in a self contained package. I guess that it's better than what a lot of the people that buy this series tractor would do maintenance wise.

    So unless these engines are a dry sump design, you are only doing a partial oil change as Bubber noted. The cartridge is cool, but give me a complete oil change.

    Looks to me like that filter can't hold more than a quart of oil, so at best you may be changing half of the oil.

    Ranks right up there with the people who don't change the oil in their car/truck because it leaks and burns so much oil that they add a quart every other week. They figure they over a few months that they have changed their oil since they have put in 4 quarts.

    It sounds like they are trying to compete with Briggs and Stratton "Check and Add".

    I wonder how the price of this new quick change cartridge compares to the cost of a conventional filter and 2 quarts of oil?

    Interesting concept. If there was a way to change out most of the oil with a method like that it would be slick. It does look like a half-baked solution though, if it only replaces a portion of the total engine oil. If it was really cheap then that wouldn't be so bad... Just do that a couple times a year. But you know that fancy cartridge is going to jack the price up so you'll be paying 3x the cost of a normal change. Plus, how do you recycle the old oil? I suppose Deere will have you bring the used cartridge back to a dealer and they'll have some expensive machine to purge the oil out of it. Hmmm... maybe if the cartridge were actually re-usable (like a core deposit thing) then it could be done more cheaply?

    Hmmm... good point about how to dispose of the old cartridge. You certainly can't just throw it in the trash.
