    Deere Water Resistant Grease for 1025R

    I stopped by my local dealer today to buy some grease for my 1025r. They recommended the Water Resistant grease in the blue label to use in my 1025r. Is this grease okay for use on the tractor , loader, backhoe and mower deck?
    Does anyone else use this grease?
    I would like to have one type of grease to use on all of my equipment.

    I used to use it on my JX85 push mower and GS30 WB mower, but dont anymore. Nothing wrong with it, just found it wasnt necessary.
    Now its SD Polyurea or HD Moly. I have a gun for each one, use the HD Moly for pins on the BH and Loader, Polyurea everywhere else, including the Exmark.
    The water resistant stuff is fine, but not necessary unless you are worried about water washing it out. Since I used to get caught in the rain, and also wash the mowers down all the time, thats why I used it. Turned out the regular stuff doesnt wash out from just a wash now and then, unless you are really trying.
    My dealer recommended the combo I have now. Or rather their setup guy did, who has been there for about 20 years now, and fixes the stuff the regular techs cant seem to, lol.

    According to my 2025 manual, SD Polyurea or HD Moly are preferred.
    They do say that wet or high speed conditions may require special grease.

    You certainly wont hurt anything using it if thats what you want to do.

    It should work for the whole tractor. I have not used the Deere brand grease, I use the Lucas x-tra heavy duty grease for everything that has a zerk or bearing. I can also get it at my local parts store too being that closest JD dealer is 25 miles away. The Lucas grease is rated at 560 degrees while the JD grease is rated at 260 and both are water resistant, I try to use the highest rated grease.

    What does the rating of 260 deg pertain to? The dropping point? If so, I thought the JD polyurea grease had a 550 deg dropping point.
    The poly urea is pretty water resistant in its own right.

    The dropping point is when the grease goes from a semi-solid to liquid (i.e. "melting point"). The higher the rating, the better heat resistance of the grease. So for bearings that run fast and generate heat, the higher the dropping point, the better it is for them.

    I know what dropping point is, I was asking if the that's what you were referring to. Where are you getting the idea that the JD grease has a dropping point of 260 deg (Celsius maybe).
    The JD poly urea grease has a much lower washout percentage than the grease you listed. 10% vs 2% loss.

    Depending on which site you look at, it ranges from 260 to 360 degrees F...

    If I remember my manual correctly, the substitute for all multi-use greases on machines and attachments is "NLGI No. 2" grease. NOT that it's the best grease, only that NLGI No. 2 grease is an ACCEPTABLE substitute. "If ya can't get the grease you want, use the grease that's available." You can always "re-grease" with your favorite stuff when you find the right stuff.

    The most important factor in grease is how often one uses it.

    In the link you posted, it shows the JD polyurea grease having a 500 deg F dropping point

    I'm with Jim on this-just get a second grease gun and go with the manufacturers specifications, and make adjustments only if you have conditions that require it.

    Whenever a JD dealer tells me that they use one grease for everything, I make a mental note to never take anything to them for service. To me, that statement raises the question - will the grease that they decide to use for everything be compatible with the recommended ones that I use? It also raises a bigger question - where else do they cut corners?

    Jim - my manual specifies moly *only* for the backhoe, and polyurea for the FEL. It's odd that the specs would be different for the 2025r.
