1025r is leaking from the mmm pto from tractor. This is the 2nd time within 6mos. Thankfully I purchased the extended warranty because the 1st time it covered the whole service including the pickup/delivery (just the seal needed replaced, looks like a metal copper looking ring). Tech said they are a nightmare to replace they have to drill a whole in it and use a slide hammer to get out. Now its leaking for the 2nd time. Scheduled to have it picked up again next week. Is this common? Anyone else having this issue? I have about 600hrs on it and its 3 years old. They said this time depending on what it looks like they might have to take the whole rear end drive train apart and tackle the fix from the inside which means ill be down a tractor for quite some time and am nervous that everything would get put back together perfectly again.
It will be interesting to hear who else is having this problem and if problem ever got fixed for you.
Thanks!
Travis

Had a 1026r and dealer replaced the mmm pto seal (on tractor) I'm thinking 5 times , could have been 4 or 6. Anyway for another reason traded in tractor and the dealer took it to his farm. After trading it the mechanics noticed they hadn't been pushing in the seal far enough by 1/6-1/32". After replacing it after trading it in the seal hasn't leaked or replaced ..that was 3 yrs ago and not sure of the hours. Guessing several it takes them 3-4 hrs to mow .:dunno::dunno:

Lovely, I guess I will have to remind the dealer to make sure to push it in far enough so I don't have that same problem. After I posted this I did some digging and found an old forum were others had the same issue with the seal not being pushed in far enough.

The dealer replaced mine twice within a few months. The third time they contacted Deere’s engineers and replaced the whole pto output shaft and housing cover.

Knock on wood it’s been two years with no leak...

The seal sets back in a predetermined depth. This is critical. The worst part is the mmm shaft/seal area is subject to alot of abuse. Dirt, sand, crap getting wrapped around it ect. This wears a slight groove where the seal rides. A new tight fitting seal will work for a while. But if the shaft is grooved, its just a matter of time... Unless you adjust the depth a hair or so. That way the seal rides on virgin shaft.
