    2018 vs 2019 2025R Differences?

    Just left the dealership, have the option to purchase either the 2018 model or the 2019 model.
    Dealer is going to provide exact number on price difference but approximated the difference at $500 - $1000.

    I was wondering if anyone could provide a comprehensive list of the differences between the two model years? Things like the intake change on the 1025R that were prone to breaking but fixed in the latest model years.

    I'm even interested in the smallest changes if anyone happens to know of them.

    The last time I was at the dealer I quickly looked over a 2019. I asked my salesman if they had changed anything and he said he wasn't aware of anything, or at least nothing major.

    If you could save 1K on a 2018 machine that's new, that could be 1K you could put towards more toys... eh I mean implements

    My thoughts exactly! But if they found a bunch of issues in the 2018 and addressed them in the 2019, then it's money well spent.

    FWIW, the only real issues I have ever seen come up here on this site in regards to the Gen 2 2025R is a rattle noise at idle in the rear of the machine. Apparently it's caused by a metal hydraulic line. There have been people that had their dealer swap this line out for a rubber one and the problem went away.

    The other one is when you're attaching the autoconnect mower with the loader still on. Apparently the loader park stand could catch on the mower, bending some items. There has been people who have done some mods to correct this. I personally have never had an issue, but that's probably because I typically always remove the loader first anyway.

    Other than that people with any year machine seem to love them and so far they have been very reliable.

    Deere doesn't put out any lists and model years don't really much. Anything different would be things that owners/users happen to notice. I haven't seen anyone mention anything changed for the 2025R at all.

    It was a complete remodel in ‘18, other than the air cleaner fix I doubt there are any changes. If the ‘18 has the new air cleaner buy that. If it doesn’t, make them put the new style on and buy it anyway and save some money.

    Good advice here. Take the '18 and pocket the difference

    Nothing official here, but something like the first 3400 new 2025's have the old style cleaner. Oddly enough, JD hasn't recognized this yet in the program for the 1025 to change this to the new style. The service manager at my dealer is in contact with his JD rep trying to rectify this. I just talked to him this past Wednesday and told him I am willing to eat the cost for the piece of mind but he told me to give him another week and he'll have an answer for me one way or the other.

    The remodel is what concerns me. I've always lived by the saying "never by the first year of a new model. Let them work out the bugs in the first year.". I know this really holds true in the automotive industry.
