    1023E, 1025E, and 1026R Technical Manuals

    I have a possible issue with my 1026R hydraulic pressure and I want to purchase the latest information for my tractor. I seem to have more than my share of senior moments these days so I wanted to run something by you'all.

    I went to John Deere Publications and the information is nothing less than confusing IMO. I may be the only one

    Look at the 4 screenshots. One and two are from John Deere Publications. Three and four are from GreenPartsStore.

    Screenshot 1 - Manual covers two models 1023E and 1026R. They give 4 serial number ranges in two different formats. I'm not sure how to interpret what they are saying

    Screenshot 2 - Manual covers three models 1023E, 1025E, and 1026R. They give what appears to be two ranges. Again, I'm not sure how to interpret what they are saying

    In desperation trying to interpret what the heck they are saying I Googled both publication numbers and went to GreenPartsStore website and found this information:

    Screenshot 3 - Says manual covers 1023E and 1026R as before. The range is given as 010,001 to 310,000 for both models.

    Screenshot 4 - Says manual covers 1023E range "after ser# 310,001, 1025E range after ser#110,001 1026R range after ser# 310,001

    Will, I want to believe GreenPartsStore information because it looks sensible to me and presented in a way someone can understand, but I've run into so many instances of "miss-information" in my lifetime...........

    I'm sure that TM109719 is the correct one for me but trying to determine that from John Deere Publication website information is frustrating. I've seen a couple of pages from the manual and the information shown for hydraulic pressure is confusing and conflicting. That makes TM126919 interesting because it may have addressed the conflict.

    I kind of thought you would pounce on this. My serial number is 221841, but forget about the GreenPartsStore information for a minute. Looking at TM126919 who's to say that my serial number does not fall in the 110,001 forward group? John Deere Publications does not identify which model this range covers. I think that's confusing to someone who's "challenged" (me). I would bet that I'm not the only one.

    Getting it correct is important because the site says these manuals are not returnable.

    Because for a 1026r it says 300,101 and forward 110,001 and forward is for the 1025r.

    Sorry, I don't see it.

    What I see is:

    310001 forward (without any models associated with this range)
    110001 forward (without any models associated with this range)

    I see that this manual covers all three models.

    Okay, I just returned from my local John Deere dealer where I ordered the manual. I could have ordered online but I wanted to ask my salesman about the manuals I've been griping about in this thread. We went to the publication site and I showed him the way that John Deere was calling out the serial numbers and he too was totally confused. I feel vindicated. Here's a man that has probably worked there for 20 years and deals with serial numbers on a daily basis and it made no sense to him either. He thought the later manual covered my tractor and was surprised when I told him it didn't. My point is that there are probably plenty of owners that would be confused and it could all be easily avoided with a few keystrokes!

    This is not a small dealership they have 30 or so 1000 series tractors lined up in front of the store. Of course the parts department had no problem because they easily zeroed in based on my serial number.

    Jason, I stopped by the service area for our tractors and talked with one of the mechanics that deals with the 1000 series tractors. He looked at the shop manual (online) and he said the hydraulic diagram and trouble shooting concerning the pressures was confusing just as you said. He had some ideas about testing that I'm going to try when I get my "KennyD" gage this week.

    1025r confusing manuals

    I wish I could offer help, but about all I can do is "join the bandwagon". I've been looking for an owner's manual, as I bought my 1025r used and didn't have one with it. Yes, the sites are confusing and not clear. Yes, the dealer can't seem to help. At my dealer's advice, I settled on the one that covers "MY2015"?? serial numbers, which I don't think is right for me (222986), but since it's only an owner's manual, can't be that much off (can it???) He DID mention - while he was reading trying to figure it out - that the "MY2015" appears to be for August 2015 and after. Don't know if this can be independently confirmed? I find it amazing how such a time tested process can be so baffling! I'd like to add this site has been a fun - and sometimes educational - read.
