    UHOH!?! New 1025R 10 hours. Hydraulic leak?

    Well. I have 10 hours on my new 1025R and noticed a spot or two in the grass where it appeared to have leaked hydro fluid.. I walked back down to the tractor and sure enough I found Hydraulic oil on the back right corner of the mower deck ( as your sitting on the seat ). I took a look around and noticed it seems to be coming from the loader control and running down the wheel well.. I checked the fluid level and it was a little bit high but it was also warm and wiped up the remaining hydro oil.. I am going to check that again when I get home today to make sure the level is still good. Yesterday when I used the tractor I didn't notice anymore oil? is there a type of overflow or relief up on the control / loader joystick? Don't know the " tech" name for that YET.

    OK. I just got off the phone with my sales guy at my local dealer. He said they have seen in the past where the factory missed a rubber gasket / oring in the connection lines for the loader control.? But more likely it is due to the tractor purging some unwanted hydraulic fluid. Told me to keep an eye on it and if I needed to call in for it again they would either come and pick it up or fix on site.

    I had this on my 2038. New tractors and hydraulic leaks go together like peanut butter and jelly. Mine was the same place. I took my fender panel off, wiped everything down and worked the loader valve til I pinpointed my leak. It was from JD getting paint on the copper crush washer, which kept it from sealing. My dealer gave me a new washer and I changed it out in ten minutes. No more leaks. Should be an easy fix. First thing you need to do is pinpoint your leak.

    There are two types of hydraulics leaks; Some that leak now and some that will leak later on.

    Hydraulic oil leaks have a way of making a little drip or two look like a lot of oil. That is, until there is a LOT of oil and then it puts the drip in perspective.

    As others said, often a very simple issue of something loose. Your dealers response was promising. Your dealer acknowledged there could be an issue and if it turns out there is one, they will address it. That's the right way for them to respond.

    When they deny there could be a leak and argue with you, that's the wrong road to go down.....there are those threads on here as well.

    I did notice a couple of drips of anti freeze in the snow on the plowed driveway from my new tractor when I first used mine a couple of months ago. In my case, since I had added the block heater and also a coolant operated cab heater, they simply overfilled the system a little bit and it sorted itself out and hasn't been an issue since. That was 160 hours of use ago.

    Enjoy your new tractor!

    The dealer had to come pick up my tractor yesterday.. I checked the hydro level and it is over the 2nd "C" on the dipstick where it says check above the full hash marks.. They said they just want to be sure and they are picking up and delivering back to me. I called at like 930 and they came at 1030 to get it! HAPPY SO FAR!

    Can you guys imagine if you had to chase a couple of leaks on a brand new car for the first 5000 miles?


    Yeah, neither would I.

    Just got off the phone with the dealer. They told me that they found that the control valve itself is bad! looks to be maybe a bad casting? they ordered me the entire valve and it should be in by tomorrow. They are going to try to have the tractor back to me for the weekend. Good Service!!

    GREAT! ANOTHER leak

    So I get my NEW 1025R back this past Friday after having the loader control valve replaced. I take the loader off Saturday morning, mow grass and remount the mower deck. Pick up the loader bucket and for some reason just decided to do a dump cycle.. Glad I did. My son says dad what was that! He then told me he saw " water" shooting out when I dumped the bucket... His "water" was the hydro fluid squirting out of the yellow quick disconnect fitting where the hardline goes into it under the floorboard... This is pretty Irritating... BRAND NEW TRACTOR 2 hydro leaks.. I hope this isn't the start of a green plague

    On the other hand. I called the dealer just now and told them of my problems. they are sending a field tech out with a " handful of orings and 2 gallons of hydro fluid" today as soon as he gets back in the shop. So at least they are responsive. That is the only thing keeping me from being REAL upset. This kind of money for a tractor. ya know? Sorry. needed to vent.. I just want my tractor!


    OHHH and while I was mowing.. I stopped because I am not used to the speed of the new beast.. even in low range it seems much faster than my old Husqy and I found that I had to slow down a lot to make my turns because I had to turn the wheel so far.. Fixed that! added one of them John Deere spinner knobs with the tractor tire tread on it. MAN WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I really like that! soooooo much easier. I now have 17 hours on it.
