    It's my understanding that Deere filled them with a break in oil, 10w30 IIRC is what Deere offers in break in oil, not a xw40 wt.

    A lot of people have disagreed with what I'm about to say but I change my oil every 50-75 hours which ends up being 2 times a year.For what I have invested in it 3 quarts and filter is cheap insurance.

    Sometimes people answering the phone at dealerships give out bad information.

    The 1025R technical service manual specifies Break-In oil for the first 100 hours and warns NOT to use Plus-50 for the first 100 hours:

    Then why does the owner's manual tell you to change the oil after 200 hours (or annually) and not 100?

    Before the 1025r, I had an x758. It's almost the same engine (minor model variation), and subject to almost the same loads. It had break in oil in it, said so in the manual, and told you to change the break in oil at 50 hours.

    The 1025r manual says nothing about break in oil and tells you to change it after 200 hours. In the absence of all other reliable information, that means there is no break in oil in there.

    The thing from the service manual could be either a copy paste from earlier versions or something they left in there after they stopped using break in oil. Assuming they did stop using break in oil. I wish someone from John Deere would actually provide that information.

    In any case, if it takes 50 hours to break in an x758, then it shouldn't take longer to break in a 1025r.

    Simply because the manual does not mention specific break in oil and specifies a 200 hour interval does not automatically mean it's not the case.

    Why would Deere put break in oil in the 'same' engine in one application but not in another?

    I just changed my engine oil at 80 hours. I am not the slightest bit concerned if it had break-in oil in it or not. I used the regular JD oil (whatever they call it these days).
    Like I said, not worried about it at all. If the motor has not been broken in by now, then I should have bought a different brand. But there is no doubt in my mind that it has been broken in just fine with the normal use that I have put it through (~30 hours loader work, ~40 hours backhoe work, ~10 hours driving around).
