    1023e Maintenance

    Last Feb (17) I received my used 2014 1023e from the dealer. It had 228hrs on it then, it now has 278.
    Should I treat the used tractor as it got all it's services it should of gotten at its current hr/age?
    I would contact the dealer but I don't think they would keep such info on one particular sale.

    Haven't done any greasing yet or any vital fluid changes. I am checking the manual but thought I would ask here as well.

    If you don't know what service was done I would do it all. The service is cheap compared to what the results of not doing it could be. Besides doing it yourself is a great way to get to know your tractor. Do the service and have an enjoyable afternoon getting to know your workhorse.

    As the other poster mentioned, if you do not have an accurate service record and there are not even dates written on the various filters then by all means do a complete service and fluid change. Not only will this provide a baseline for future maintenance but it will also allow you to verify the condition of the existing fluids, filters and other maintenance items.

    Did the selling dealer provide you with any type of warranty? Hopefully everything will look fine but in the unlikely event that you encounter something that is a potential issue, the sooner you bring it up with the dealer the better.

    I would have typed the exact same thing

    To the OP,

    It is relatively cheap if you are doing it yourself and you'll have peace of mind knowing exactly where you stand on maintenance. Also, if you didn't notice, there's a quick reference for scheduled maintenance on the underside of the hood in case you don't have your manual handy.

    Greasing various zerks also can be dependent on use, not just the recommended interval checks, so if you're using the loader heavy for a landscaping project (example) would be a good idea to check before and after. Have fun with it!

    When in doubt, service it. You can't do any harm with fluid and filter changes / services and it gives you a good baseline going forward.

    If it were mine and the circumstances are as you describe, I would buy the Deere "Filter Pack" and change them all. Make sure to also change out the fuel filters while you are at it and pick up a spare set of fuel filters for your spare parts / tool box as you want to have spares in case you have an issue. That way you can get the machine up and running again promptly instead of having to go get the fuel filters when needed.

    Make sure to Use the Deere Low Viscosity Hydrostatic Fluid and you might as well purchase it in the 5 gallon bucket, as it's the most economical way to purchase the fluid and you will use more than half of it to change the hydro fluid. You will need 13 quarts of hydro fluid and buying it in gallons is more expensive and you would have to purchase 4 gallon jugs to have enough and some spare fluid. In many dealers, the 5 gallon bucket is cheaper than buying (4) 1 gallon jugs of the same.

    The rest of the fluid is handy to have on hand to top off the system when you change implements and connect and disconnect hydraulic lines over time. Plus the empty buckets are great for transporting the old fluid from engine oil and hydraulic oil changes to the recycle center or to someone who may heat with an waste oil burner, etc.

    When you do the hydro change, make sure you have a large volume catch pan which will fit under the tractor as you will be getting 13 quarts of fluid out of the hydro system. Once the fluid starts to flow, it's not the time to learn your catch pan is too small as that makes for a big mess.

    Of course, make sure to heat up the fluid by running the tractor a few minutes before service as it permits the fluid to drain faster and more completely. Also, once you pull the drain plug from the rear end, make sure to open the fill point under your seat as it will allow the fluid to empty faster once you have removed the fill cap. Do the same when changing the engine oil, remove the fill cap and even the dip stick to speed up the fluid draining.

    Although I have various different oil / fluid change catch containers, I bought this one on Amazon and it works GREAT for preventing any mess and handling all of the fluid. Plus it fits under the entire rear end of the tractor (several of my other oil drain pans wouldn't fit under the tractor rear axle) and catches everything........Very handy for servicing these units. And it dumps cleanly. It's easier to dump a partially full fluid catch container than one filled to the brim with dirty old fluid.

    Thanks guys.
    I am going to start with greasing everything. I want to get that tip that locks on the fitting. Anyone know if they sell one at HFreight?
    Roughly how much is the fluid changing going to run me?

    Lock n lube is not sold at Harbor Freight. I think most people buy them on Amazon. Here is their website - use the dealer locator to see if anyone near you stocks it.
