    Trans Level

    Good morning everyone. I got my new 1025r delivered and after I put it to bed that night in my garage I lowered all the implements. Next morning i checked rear trans level and the fluid level was just above the add mark and just below the middle of the first X on the dipstick. Called the dealer and service man said it was fine. I was just double checking your professional thoughts on if it is ok or if I should add a little.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's fine.
    It's above add. You can fine tune it if you like but you will cause no damage nor premature wear running it as is.

    Resist the temptation to over fill it. lol Just remember that the fluid expands when it gets hot.
    The plastic reservoir tank always looks empty on my X540. However the fluid is above the line. No idea why JD made the tank so big.

    Mine was delivered like that too and I topped it up. I figured it is just good business on JD to short fill the case a couple litres on every tractor, not a critical level, but that adds up to a lot of fluid every year that they don't pay for. That's not based on any facts, just my own imagination, but it sounds good.

    I find on my 2305 the level in the window is very sensitive to the tractor sitting level.

    Posted for general info only. Not suggesting you alter your tractor based upon my feeble minded posts. Do so at your own risk. Maintenance and mods should be performed by a JD Dealer, or refer to your owners and maintenance manuals for proper procedures.

    Mine was the same way. I just happened to catch it at the dealer before delivery and they topped it off. It wouldn't suprise me they are shipped that way. Who knows why??

    1025R/1023E are usually pretty good on Low Visc from the factory unless you had a loader or BH added then the set up guy may not have added any. I always have to add a cup or so of plus 50 oil, don't know why they can't fill to the full line. X 700's are always full on hydro and engine oil. X 300, 500 and D series always need alittle oil to top off.

    My 1023e came the same way, I had to add two quarts, the dealer gave me two gallons. They also told me that all these machines are shipped to the dealer completely dry, they have to add all the fluids when they do prep before sale.
