Does this look like your tractor? I searched 1025r and this was one of the photos that came up showing 2 lines.

A picture may help those that know the 1025.

There's also much debate on when to change the "break in" oil and 50 hours seems to be the sweet spot on doing so.

This is what the bottom of my 1025r looks like. Is yours different?

Mine was changed at 50 hrs. The car manual calls for 7500 miles but I change it and filter at 5000 miles intervals same as I have for last 40 yrs.

Tractor engine oil gets changed once a year after that.

Yes, I only have about 22 hours on mine and I really have been arguing with myself about doing it or waiting. Some have advised me that there are additives in the break in oil that need to be present longer. It still seems to me like I am neglecting service.

Keep in mind that John Deere says that you need to use break in oil for the first 100 hours. The service manual states that the first oil change is at 100 hours. But like the OP I will do mine annually since I will probably not put 100 hours on mine in a year.

I suppose he could do what I did. Pick up a gallon of TY26661 J-D 10-30 break in oil and change it.....?

That's probably what he should do. My 2720 is over 3 years old and I change the engine oil and filter every year and I'm still filling it with Break-in oil. I finally have over 100 hours so during this season's oil change I will be refilling with regular oil.
