    New Air filter update. FREE.

    Well, I emailed my dealer and explained that a good number of people have been getting their air filter re location parts for free from their dealers. I also mentioned that my existing bracket was already tightened once and that the bracket actually came loose the other day while messing around with some snow. They gave me no issue at all and asked if I wanted to schedule a service pick up for them to install the relocation parts or if I wanted them to ship the parts to my house. I emailed them last Friday and I got a big box of parts in the mail yesterday! I couldn't be more happy with my dealer at this point.

    The Deere solution number is #113718 for anyone who has missed it.

    I replaced my air filter assembly yesterday. You can remove the entire assembly as a unit simply by loosening the hose clamp at the base of the air inlet hose and the 3 lock nuts on the bracket on the valve cover, lifting off the entire assembly in one piece.

    A 13mm socket with extension and ratchet. Another socket of either 12mm or 14mm for the new lock nuts which hold the new bracket on the core support and a Nut driver for the clamps and a 10mm box end wrench and about 10 minutes is all it takes to swap it out. Very simple and straight forward...............

    A great dealer makes a world of difference, that's for sure.

    Incidentally, I found the old air cleaner elements fit many of the Kawasaki engines with the same style air cleaner housing. Turns out the filters, both inner and outer on my old air cleaner assembly fit my Exmark Zero turn air cleaner perfectly, which is nice because I have two sets of spares air filters for the old style. Now I can just use those filters in my Zero turn, including the filters in the housing I just removed which were replaced just 5 hours before removing the assembly for the new style.

    If you remove the entire assembly in one piece, it amazing someone thought it was a good idea to hang the weight and mass of the old canister, bracket, strap and hoses off the bracket on the valve cover. The new arrangement is much better..............

    Tha5s really good news. When I bought mine I picked through the 1025r's that the dealer had on the lot and found 3 that were just a little shinier...and had the updated air cleaner. 1 had the FEL already mounted. I told the salesman that was the one I wanted. Im glad your dealer stepped up and fixed the issue. It might save them a warrantee claim. Might as well do it now instead of later. Its nice working with that sort of dealer!

    I have not. Mines a 2016. The bracket mount is doing ok on mine too but scares me a little as well. I did call my dealer twice on the issue and they are aware of it but wont cover it cause deere has not put a recall out on it. He did say if it breaks the engine then thats covered under the 5 year powertrain warranty.

    My dealer told me they would replace it with the new style free of charge, but only if the original is broken.

    I got with my Deere dealer...I have a used tractor purchased from another Deere dealer....my Dealer gave me a credit of $75 and I sold the old parts for $40 on ebay so I came out pretty good. As a matter of fact Deere had engineered the filter at the front (non-engine mounted) as there were placed to bolt the new one. Also I picked up the little tabs when removing the side covers....I think Deere might have been reverse engineering on these units...

    The 1026R had the "new" design in 2011. That is why the holes are already in the firewall. Some "new young" engineer had a bright idea and FUBARed the whole thing, now we with older 1025Rs are footing the bill for Deere s blunder. What year is your machine? You have a decent dealer there. Hold on to them.

    Mine is a 2014, but I bought parts before dealer agreed to make an allowance. I didn't want the jerk to damage the valve cover in anyway. The new or original system is super....smooth and easy to change filter. It was a JD blunder.

    This whole ordel about the air cleaner is a real "gear grinder". To much depends on the year of your tractor, whether it's still under warranty, whether you have had problems and your particular JD dealer. On 2018 1025R models, in April or May of this year, JD started equipping them with the updated design. My son purchased his tractor in March with the old design and I purchased mine in June with the new design. I contacted our dealer, explaining that we had different air cleaners. The dealer in turn contacted their JD representative and he without hesitation agreed to update my son's with the new design. That being said, we are very pleased with the way our dealership and JD stepped up to the plate.

    However, JD obviously felt that there was something wrong with the earlier design, or they would not have changed it mid season. It seems that JD should treat any year 1025R, whether in or out of warranty the same and replace the air cleaners at no charge if asked. The problem is that they aren't and the individual dealers and their respective JD reps are treating it as they see fit. As far as machines that are out of warranty, corporate greed wants you to foot the bill for their inept design. There has been a number of reports where a $7500 engine had to be replaced, because of a broken valve cover. I also find it unacceptable that many JD dealers have yet to be advised of this problem, even though the bulletin has been out for quite some time.

    We here at GTT are a very small group of JD owners compared to the rest of the world. There must be countless examples of failure that we are unaware of. Mother Deere needs to be held accountable and address this on a consistent basis. There is either a problem or there isn't. If there isn't, why does the design keep changing? Are you listening John Deere?

    PS: Maybe I should have posted this in the gear grinder thread, but I thought more members would read this hear.
