Given the number of issues that get reported following hydraulic fluid changes, I am tempted to skip the first 300 hour hydraulic fluid change on the 915B. Can anybody comment on the wisdom (or lack thereof) of that plan? We put about 70-80 hours/year on the machine, and it just doesn't seem like that would put much stress on the fluid.
Has anybody had any unhappy experiences changing the fluid on a 915, or is it a fairly benign procedure?
The hydraulics on the 1025r go through much more of a workout, so I'll definitely not skip that one. Just have to decide if I should do it myself or send it off to JD in the fall. (they do a free maintenance pickup in late fall/early winter.)
