    1025r Stupid Air Cleaner design

    Pretty sure i just read some posts about this issue and the air cleaner being turned and mounted differently. But what the heck were the JD designers thinking. I already once had to tighten the bolts on the valve cover... and now my strap broke. This thing vibrates around like a mfer! This is on a 2016 1025r.

    Anyone have luck getting this fixed by their dealers under warranty? Or is there maybe a recall?

    Many straps and support brackets have been replaced under warranty.

    Sorry, I don't have an answer for you. But you mentioned JD designers in your post. I can say with 99.999% JD designers designed NOTHING at all on these low end tractors. If you do the research you will find that all major systems & component parts are from other manufacturers. All your buying is a green & yellow paint job. It's been this way for at least the past thirty or forty years with these tractors. Blame the bean counters at JD & not the designers because they had very little to do with it.

    While everyone loves those sub compact tractors, they have a lot of problems. So what do you really have? Maybe a Yanmar engine, a B & S engine or a Kawasaki. That's what I would try & find out first just as a matter of understanding what you really have. Then do a search looking for the problem & see what others are saying. They may have the same problem as you but in a different color machine. We're now a Global country- Maybe your engine is also in a Mahindra, Kubota, LS or New Holland. Maybe they have a retro fit or a fix, but I rather doubt it.

    My JD is thirty years old & the only thing JD about it is the green & yellow paint. The only plus side is that JD is almost the only company that offers any support with parts & repair information that the average owner can gain access to on line or at their dealer. All the other brands keep it a secret so your locked out of almost every DIY repair & most of these machines can be repaired by the average shade tree mechanic as long as you have access to the shop repair manual & the parts catalog. I tell everyone who invests thousands of $$$$$ into a machine, to BUY the shop manual & the Parts catalog in printed form & save it in a safe place because when the years roll by, & you try to repair that machine your going to be up the creek without a paddle as they say without those two books. Good luck.

    My strap broke the same way as yours, right at the metal hook. Brought it to dealer, and they gave me a replacement right out of another 1025r that they had on the lot.

    Jeesh man.. no need for the essay. I am very mechanically inclined and do all my own fixing on everything I own. If you dont even know the machine then dont bother posting!!

    Thanks for the post. Found the strap behind the alternator and didn't know where it came from. Now I can go to the dealer and get it replaced. Tractor had only about 50 hrs on it when I noticed the strap

    No need for the "Essay". Then don't read it. I thought ALL opinions are welcome here. Very mechanically inclined. Glad to hear it. Did you know that mushrooms grow best in the dark, even the ones that know how to screw in the light bulbs. Look on Youtube. That engine is in several brands of tractors. You will find videos of broken straps & also on the LS tractors, the radiator reservoir is impossible to keep filled because the vibration is so bad it shakes the filler cap off & the oil dipstick which is located ON THE SIDE IN THESE TRACTORS, KEEPS FALLING OUT OF THE DIP TUBE ALLOWING WATER, DUST & DIRT TO GET INTO THE ENGINE OIL.

    So let me ask you, since your so mechanically inclined, what do you think is causing all that vibration? Wasn't that you complaint-excessive vibration. I would be more concerned than just a broken strap, but hey, you already said it, the thing is shaking itself to death.

    Now you have yourself a blessed day. In the grand design of things is just a blip on the radar screen.

    Opinions are like a$$holes. Everyones got one. Its the time when you use it that matters. I dont know whats causing the issue. But i would guess its bad design..;). But thats why i asked the forum my question. I have been around; own a 1972 112 and had an LX176 and 170. Did all the work myself. I bought a new machine with a warranty for a reason. And most users on here stick to the subject and dont give a long drawn out answer that doesnt have anything to do with the subject. You a politician?
