    Why does the 1025r have two fuel filters?

    Why does the 1025r have two fuel filters? Especially since one of them is a real, high quality filter and the other is one of those dinky little things you put on lawn mowers (the push kind)? Why does it even need that second one? What does it do that the first one cannot?

    My take on this: the small/cheap filter is mounted pre-fuel pump for the purpose of keeping the larger dirt items from being pulled into the pump. The opening on our tractor's fuel tank is large, and typically filled from a can...making it much more susceptible to having "dirt" enter it than a vehicle thats filled at an actual pump. The "better" filter is designed to service pressurized fuel just prior to it entering the engine.

    Here is what I think happened:
    When the JD designers/engineers came up with the idea for the tractor, they decided that the one large fuel filter was sufficient, and it was easy for the average Joe to change out. Then the JD brain trust said..."hey wait! If Average Joe can change out the filter himself without taking it to the dealer, we only make $ on the part, not on the labor". To make up for that, they decided to add the extra filter for the extra revenue. AND they made it a giant PITA to change out, increasing the likelihood of the Average Joe to bring it in to the dealer. That my friends is what they call a win-win for JD!

    Totally agree. I would also venture to guess that the micron rating on the small filter is maybe 20, 30 or 40 and the rating on the larger filter is in the single digits.

    The "second" filter is also designed as a fuel/water seperator.
    Lots of machines have an inline filter right after the fuel tank. Most are a metal inline canister that doesnt allow the operator to see whats in it.
    If you dont like where its located, then relocate it down the line and install an inline fuel shutoff where the filter is now. Problem solved and no need to visit the "stealership".

    So if I were to remove it completely, the only downside would be more frequent replacement of the easy to get to and inexpensive main filter? That doesn't sound like a bad thing.

    I like the thought of a inline shut off. That makes sense to me. Mine is still under 20 hrs so I haven't tried to change it

    Easy answer, more filters = more parts sales. 😉
