    1025r First Engine Oil Change and type

    Cant believe the owners manual suggest an oil change every 200 hrs!!??? I got my machine on this May 14th, use it every weekend to mow 2 acres and do some yard work and I only have 36 hrs on it! At that rate i wont change the oil for 2 years!! Sorry i dont buy that! I was always one for changing my oil on my tractors at least once a year, and cars every 3000.
    That being said ... il probably do the oil change when I do the 50hr service.
    I see the manual also recommend 15W 40 for all year around use. I use Rotella T in my Duramax.. think I can use the same oil int he yanmar???

    I am changing mine before winter and i only have 20hrs on it. I am putting JD breakin oil back in it untill 100 hours. Others on here that have more knowledge than me will offer their help. I plan on changing mine at least every year. Probaly around 70hrs.

    I question whether people waste money changing the oil more often out of the manufacturers recommendations? I mean it does have a good warranty.
    I know piece of mind but would you buy a tractor that had to have a oil change every 30hrs? Then people who risk damage if it doesn't have it.
    Although for the record... I believe it's 200hrs or yearly...

    I hear ya ... but just like my Truck manual says i can change the oil every 10K, or whatever it is, i change it at 5000. To me oils cheaper then an engine and i just dont trust that it can last that long.

    This is from the 1025R manual -

    Annually

    Clean radiator and oil cooler fins.
    Check radiator coolant freeze point and clarity of coolant. See your John Deere Dealer for service, or to order a John Deere Coolant Test Kit.
    Check and service air filter elements.
    Change engine oil and filter if less than 200 hours of operation.
    Drain water from fuel tank and replace fuel filters.
    Check all hoses and clamps.
    Check battery electrolyte level.

    If I recall correctly your manual says to stick with the Deere break-in oil up until you hit the 100 mark.

    Water in oil

    The problem I have in waiting until the 100 change period is that it will go past cold winter months with no change. In my neck of the woods, it can get very cold in winter, but also with a number days above freezing. That means that unless I use the tractor in the winter (which I don't) there will be condensation in the oil in the spring. I know that the condensation will eventually burn off, I just hate to start and run it with water in the oil for any period of time. So, guess will change oil in the spring to get rid of the water, and refill with JD break in oil to use for the rest of the summer. As far as oil goes, any diesel rated oil is OK as far as I am concerned. I use Royal Purple 15w/40 synthetic in my other diesel tractor. I also use an anti algae additive in the fuel tanks.

    I only have 125 hrs on my 4-year old 2720 so I've been doing the annual oil/filter changes. I don't do any mowing with my tractor so most of the hours come from snow removal. As such, I always do my annual oil change in late September. That way I have the fresh oil in for the winter when most of the work gets done. So far I have been refilling with JD Break-in oil until just this past September when I finally went over 100 hrs and did an oil change using non Break-in oil.

    15W-40 is only recommended if the temperature never gets below 0F. Below is the chart from the 1025R manual:
