    1025R air filter strap is broken

    On my 2016 FILB the rubber strap over the air filter has cracked and torn almost completely through at the outboard clip that hooks the strap to the metal bracket. A quick call to my dealer service manager says it's covered under warranty and they'll have one for me this coming Monday - none are in stock. This dealer has 5 locations and this part's not in stock? Good service department, but a flimsy over -stressed under designed part like this should be in stock in at least one store.

    Anyone else have this strap break at or before 230 hrs? Just wondering...

    Mine broke in the exact same way. I brought my busted strap to the dealer. They didn't have one in stock, and gave me one off of a brand new tractor on the lot. Stellar service right there!
    I had right around 100 hours on mine (it was exactly 1 year old).

    Mine broke in the same way @100hrs in the meter at the time. Got a smidge if slack covering it under warranty, but I was pretty assertive and my parts guy threw it in for free when I bought all my filters/oils, I think the parts guy thought it was crap it broke and wanted me taken care of.

    Dealers (and not just Deere) are like that these days. No one wants to carry inventory on their dime. Once the part is at the dealers, it's theirs.

    I have now wrapped over the rubber strap with a 1" wide Velcro strap. This gives me peace of mind. If the rubber breaks, I'll use just the Velcro strap.

    My Deere dealer has been exceptional in their parts inventory over the years. In fact, in all of the years I have dealt with them, they either had the part in stock or could get, sometimes even the same day, usually the next day for sure. I had one part which was on order and that part took 8 months to come in because of the changing in supplier sourcing for that part. This was the only time in 25 years that I have had this happen.

    My parts guy showed me where there system keeps track of all the parts sold and the frequency and also works with an inventory list which Deere suggests the dealer maintain. So, in theory, once the dealer has sold one of these broken straps (to stay with the OP's story line) there should be a replacement part ordered for it since the part would show up as a late model part replaced under warranty. Now, the dealer would be able to over ride this and block the ordering if it was an exceptional case where the part was needed, but otherwise, the parts would be available either in their inventory or at least in their region.

    Based upon what I have seen, once the dealer sells one for a newer tractor due to warranty, they will likely be stocking the part going forward. Also, it could be out of stock because someone else broke their strap and the part in inventory was sold, now putting the replacement part on order.........based upon ordering frequency, the system would now suggest at least 2 be kept in stock.

    When I am undertaking a project on my older tractor and trying to get the parts in advance, when I rebuilt the rear end assembly and the Hydrostatic drive unit, I had a list of part numbers and as I ran them past the parts guy, he could tell me if they ever ordered these parts before. One part was the rear axle bearings on my 455. I knew I wanted to replace the rear axle seals, but I had him check on the frequency of having sold the actual axle bearings and race. In the history of their dealership, they had NEVER sold THAT bearing, but did sell several seals. I bought only the seals and sure enough, when I got in there, the bearings were good and only the seals needed replacing. This has been very helpful for making sure I have what i need so I can tear down, make the repairs and get it back together.

    There is a cost for dealers to not have the parts in stock. It means slower turn around in the Service Department, down machinery, technicians moving equipment around while waiting for parts, unhappy customers, delays in cash flow from service invoices being paid when awaiting parts, etc., etc.........

    Now my friend who bought a Mahindra found that his dealer doesn't even stock the filters for his machine......They had to order the filters and it took 7 days to do an engine and hydro service change on his new 45 hp Mahindra. I have NEVER heard of that happening at a Deere dealer.

    My metal bracket cracked, and the rubber strap broke as well, at approximately 100 hours. Neither part was in stock at any of the 5 dealership locations in my area. I now have over 250 hours on the replaced parts. I had the "new" style bracket from the beginning.

    I had my strap fall off, found it just lying there under the tractor. The wire bale at the end of the strap had widened and come out of the rubber. I simply put the wire back on and squeezed it shut.

    I also had to re-tighten the bracket.

    I follow John Deere on Facebook, a while back they had a video on changing the air filter. I commented that they should do something about that horrible metal strap and rubber strap that break, and that it's a common issue. I then had other people adding to my comment about them breaking on their 1025s, including a guy who was very unhappy about how his dealer handled it. Eventually the JD person that runs their page started commenting on my post add giving these guys instructions to contact their corporate customer service.

    Maybe eventually they'll get the hint and redesign it completely?

    Mine broke to but I've been running it without the rubber strap for quite a while now. It's a lot quieter when I shut the engine down.
    I checked it out good and have been. The violence that the air cleaner cartridge suffers when strapped to the engine was to much for me to stand.
