    Question 2016 John Deere 1025R - - - 50 hr Service cost comparison between dealer and DIY ??

    What is the general cost difference between having the dealer do the 50 hr break-in service, or doing it yourself?

    I want to do it myself, but was curious what the fluids/parts cost is complete to buy it all yourself vs having the dealer do the entire job?

    Thanks.

    I have links on my website which will give you a quick price check on the service supplies. These are discounted prices.

    You can easily do a comparison. Make a list of the oil and filters required and check the price on JD Parts. Be sure to select the dealer who would be doing the work. That will be your parts cost - add any applicable tax. Then look up the same parts on GreenFarmParts using your GTT or TTWT discount. Add $150-200 for labor to the dealer column and you'll have a fairly close comparison.

    PS: It's ALWAYS less expensive to do it yourself AND you know that everything was done correctly.

    If you don't have a trailer to take your tractor to the dealer, you'll also have to pay a transport fee for them to pick up and deliver your tractor.

    Even if you do have a trailer, you'll spend time and gas getting it to the dealer.

    Understand about cleaning and inspecting the metal mesh oil pickup filter if you do it yourself. This was the one pain point for me. For some it is worth it to have the dealer do that.

    A friend of mine has the dealer to pickup ,do his service, and return the tractor, usually $3-400 more than my cost of buying JD filters and fluids.

    Follow the manual , learn how your tractor runs.

    The only thing I did when it was time for the 50 hour service was change the hydraulic fluid, hydraulic filter, cleaned the magnets and transmission suction screen. And other recommended items to check per the owners' manual. \ Engine oil change was done at the 100 hour mark./
    ----------------------------------------
    I don't know what the dealer would charge to have them do the work, but the following is what they would charge me for the hydraulic filter and the low vis hydraulic fluid if I bought from them today.

    These are the prices I paid on 1/24/17 at the same dealer. I keep these in stock so I have everything ready for the next time. I have already done the 50 hour and the 200 hour services recommended by the owners' manual.



    You can check online stores for price comparisons and discounts, but sometimes for me the prices are better at my local dealer. Plus, I know them and they know me. The service manager has given me advice, answered questions, and seems more than happy to do it.

    Also, and not that I do this, since I prefer to support my dealer...TSC has the oil that meets specs for less than half what JD charges. Filters and air cleaners may be available as well

    That $12.32 was the price on 1/24/17.
    Today it is $15.48.
    Today GFP is $22.90

    Still, quite a bit of a price difference, huh?
