new tractor owner with 1025r I bought last year. manual doesn't say anything about fluids and filters till 200 hrs. Am I missing something??
The Operator's Manual that came with my 2019 1023E (part# OMLVU31626 Issue J8) doesn't call for annual oil/filter changes wither. Apparently, later in the production run of model-year 2019 there was a newer version of that manual (part# OMLVU31626 Issue A9) which does recommend every 200 hours or annually. I just turned over 50 hours.... I usually do annual oil changes in the fall on my equipment anyway, if for no other reason than two switch to a lower viscosity synthetic for easier Minnesota starting in the winter. I have some Rotella T6 and a Wix filter ready to go...I'll probably change that in the next couple of weeks. It's easy enough, and cheap enough.Check the next page under the heading of:
Maintenance Interval Chart—Every 600 Hours to Every 6000 Hours
In the "Annually" column you will see listed an engine oil / filter change. So if you put on less than 200 hrs per year they still want you to change the engine oil/filter.
As for the previously recommended initial 50 hr hydraulic fluid / filter / suction screen, that is no longer listed in the newer manuals. Caveat Emptor.
