    Transmission oil change..

    I have a new 2018 1023e and was looking in my manual as to when I should change my transmission oil and filter. According to my manual it states the first change should be at 200 hrs. I was watching you tube videos and they were showing that it should be changed after 50 hrs. on previous models. Is this something new to the new 2018 model? There also was a mention of special break-in oil that should be used for the engine but i'm not finding that in manual either.
    Maybe i'm not looking in right place in my manual. Thanks for any info......

    Not sure if it changed for 2018. Might need to ask dealer. My 2016 was 50 hrs. My service manger said to change engine oil at least once a year and he told me they do not use the break-in oil after the first year. I put the regular in at 50 hrs if I recall it was 5-40 JD oil.

    This seems to be an issue with the operator's manuals for the newer tractors. It appears JD has contracted someone new to write the manuals and as a result they are very confusing and some sections seem to be omitted.

    In the 2018 manual there is no mention of ANY 50 hr service. Only engine oil/filter and transmission oil, filter and suction screen at 200 hrs.

    In the 2017 manual and prior there is a 50 hr initial service:

    After First 50 Hours

    • Change transmission oil and filter.
    • Clean transmission suction screen.


    Now... keep in mind the tractor engine and transmission has not changed between 2017 and 2018 yet that 50 hr initial service has been omitted. We have also seen just how dirty the suction screen typically is at 50 hrs.

    If it were my tractor I would follow the maintenance schedule that is in the earlier owner's manuals.

    If you raise the hood and look underneath there is also a quick reference chart for service intervals but I do know on my 2017 it was 50 hrs for the tranny service, but that could have changed.

    Ask your dealer. Get the real skinny from him.

    Did you also get a SERVICE RECORD book? It was in there.

    Mine is a 2017, I changed the fluid @ 50 & there was a lot of junk in the screen. There is a great YouTube vid of the service. Clean out that screen housing good with a pocket magnet.

    Forum history shows that asking the dealer is probably the worst place to get accurate info. Ask 5 dealers and you'll likely get 5 different answers ranging from "change it at 10 hrs" to "It really never needs changed". Sad but true.

    I looked under the hood and it shows 200 Hrs. for tranny and filter. Engine oil and filter at 200 hrs. You would think they would want you to continue to change both areas at 50hrs. After all its more money in their pocket!!! Maybe they changed their machining process to help eliminate some of the metal chips or they clean things better before assembly.

    Yeah, service book says 200 hrs. for both tranny and engine oil and filters.
