    1025R extended warranty -worth it?

    I've never had good experiences with extended warranties. They either excluded what went wrong or nothing went wrong. They just cost me money.

    But with this 2016 tractor, I'm now faced with no warranty after April or I buy an extended warranty. What do you guys and gals think? I can fix just about anything on it, but something like transmission parts or hydraulics will be parts cost intensive.

    I've had no problems other than the FEL isn't level. One side is higher than the other. The frame is level/squared with the pavement, but one side of the bucket is lower. This is a problem with pallet forks and when trying to scrape a drive level.

    For reference, I have only put 150 hrs on it because of a lot of vacation travel since purchase. I anticipate more hours in the next 12 months (less travel and more tractor work on 6 acres).

    Thanks for experienced input.

    Where would one purchase an extended warranty once the JD warranty is up?

    I would do some research and see if anyone has any high hour 1 series and what issues have developed. I have not read about too many serious issues about the 1 series on this forum but I still think most of them are still fairly new. I would think the next 2-3 years we will see if there are any system issues that develop like the 2210 & 2305 had with their driveshaft & PTO cases.

    I would think unless you plan putting hundreds of more hours during the extended warranty period it might not be of use to you other than ease of mind. Personally I would not consider getting one unless I had already had a serious problem during the normal warrant period and I plan on putting a couple of hundred hours a year on the tractor and really working it. If that is the case and the tractor is paid for consider trading it in for new and a new factory warranty.

    Here's my 2 cents,

    I like to take the risk, and whatever the cost of the extended warranty is put that money into any repair that MAY occur. Basically, I am self insuring and if nothing major happens I am money ahead.

    How is that possible? No warranty after April on a 2016 tractor? I thought there was a 6 years plan and 2 years bumper to bumper. I didn't have the new warranty they have now but I had a 3 year bumper to bumper. Something doesn't sound right.

    Go with the extended warranty. The guy that bought my 1025R had serious problems with the tranny and it cost him big bucks. Dealer had done all the tranny service. Because of that i went with the extended warranty on my 4066R.

    I'm with Levi on this one, that ain't right. If the tractor is a 2016 you should have a full bumper to bumper warranty for 2 years or 2000 hours. Attachments only have a 12 month warranty however, which your loader would fall under. I believe that 2016 model 1 and 2 series tractors have a 6 year power train warranty.

    If you decide to do the extended warranty pay particular attention to the fine print. The extended warranty covers from the time you bought the tractor, not after the original warranty runs out. So if you have a two year warranty from purchasing, which I believe you do, and then buy the four year extended warranty tomorrow, that four year extended is really only two years.
