I would be interested in your thread and part number if it’s not too much troubleI think I posted this somewhere here previously, but my 2025R did the same thing. It bugged me a lot. My sales guy at my dealer was able to find some sort of publication from JD that listed a part number for a soft line replacement. I replaced the hard line with a soft line and it solved the resonance noise. If you're interested, let me know and I'll see if I can find my post or a part number for you. It wasn't difficult to replace but the seat had to come off. I did have someone comment that they'd never replace a hard line with a soft line, but for me I hated the sound enough that I was willing to try anything...and if Deere makes the part I figured it should be ok.
Thanks for the info. Just looked on GPS & they have it priced at 99.24. Also looked up the parts catalog usage & it seems to be an option like you say between having the steel line or hose.For those that are interested. Here is a link to my post that shows the new soft line and part number. Fix for Hydraulic Hard Line resonating (2025R)
Here is the link for the hose on Green Parts Store.Mackford13, Where do I find the GPS site? Thanks
If you look at any excavator, bulldozer, or anything else that has to articulate they all have 'soft lines' at some point in their plumbing to accommodate movement of the boom, etc. IMO, the manufacturers don't use hard lines because they are necessarily stronger. They are probably easier to manufacture and cheaper than a similar soft line rated at the same psi. As long as precautions are taken against chafing/rubbing against other assemblies, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it....I did have someone comment that they'd never replace a hard line with a soft line, but for me I hated the sound enough that I was willing to try anything...and if Deere makes the part I figured it should be ok.
