I bought a 3025 with a backhoe the other day, and after a week, I still haven't solved a basic question. When I'm just driving around, what is the rev setting I should have on the throttle?. And should I leave it at the same point when I'm using the loader or backhoe?

I seem to have settled about 2400, but I don't see in the manuals where I should have it.

You can use whatever "feels" right to you, sounds like 2400 is it (y)

The only time you really need to worry about it is when using the PTO, you want that (usually anyway) to run at 540, so the engine will have to run at a specific speed to attain that.

For PTO work it should be marked on your tachometer. For that engine I think it is 3100 RPM. On my 3046R I mow with the RPMS about 2200, but that is a turbocharged engine with 20 more HP.

It all depends on what you are doing with the tractor. A bigger load requires more throttle. But they do not like idling as it tends to create unnecessary soot and more regens. For mowing, full throttle is the only way to go. It will likely pull down to 540 RPM under load. For loader work, I usually run 1500-2000 RPM. The more RPM, the better the hydraulics work. Anything else, you can get a feel for how much throttle you need, but make sure you use enough throttle to avoid lugging the engine.
