    1025R leaking fluid

    I think I have some sort of leak coming from the transaxle/transmission of my 1025r. I had noticed a couple drips on the floor of the shed over the past couple of weeks. The other day I got ready to change the hydraulic fluid. Once I got under the tractor, I noticed that the bottom of the tranny was quite wet with oil. I stopped what I was doing so I can get it to the dealer to check/fix. I called them today and spoke with the service mgr. He stated that he was 99% sure that whatever they find would be covered under warranty. I found that odd that he would be so straight out with that, makes me think this is something that they have seen before. Either way, as long as it gets fixed and stops leaking, and I don’t have to pay for anything, I am OK with that. I do have to pay for the round trip transportation to their shop ($85), but whatever. I will update this thread as I get more info. They are coming to get the tractor on Friday.

    It seems pretty common to have a slow leak where the halves and covers of the tranny meet up, and are basically just gooped up with silicone when they are assembled.

    How many hours are on your tractor?

    That is very worrisome as two machined surfaces should be very easy to seal with silicone...........Done correctly, they should never leak.

    I also read about some issues with the camera's which were monitoring the robotic use of silicone sealant and the camera's were failing to spot missing sealant, but one would think that would leak from the moment it rolled on the floor.

    Make sure to let us know what they find and how it turns out.

    I am curious about the $85. How far did they have to come to pick it up and drop it back off for that?

    It may have been leaking since day 1 for all I know. This was the first time I was underneath it with a flashlight to look around. I have only kept it in the shed for about 6 weeks, which is right around when I first noticed the leak. Would not have seen the drips in the dirt before I finished building the shed.

    The dealer has a standard price list for all the nearby towns. My house is about 10 miles away, a 20 minute drive. According to their website, the round trip is anywhere from $77 to $157 depending on distance/town.

    It should be pretty simple, but oil will slowly make it's way through even the tiniest gap. Even the best machined components need a gasket or sealant, and if they miss a tiny spot...you get a leak.

    .
    Usually when these tractors leak in the rear end or drive units, all kinds of grass and dirt will stick to the area of the leak., especially under the rear of the tractor where it catches grass debris from mowing. I have seen them where I had to use a leaf blower to get the debris off that was stuck to the rear end assembly from the leak. If that rear drive area has been really dirty, it may have been leaking for awhile.

    The other thing about oil leaks is a really small leak looks like a LOT of oil. But in reality, these hydro units hold about 2 gallons of fluid and even if they drip out a pint, it looks like a big spot......The good news is if the floor of the shed is wood, that oil on the wood will preserve it for a long time........
