I started by subsoiling about 5 acres of hard dry heavy clay ground. I ran it as deep as it would go and at times it was all i could pull due to the ground being so hard.

Then I hooked up a 6 tooth chisel plow and went over it. I burnt the paint off the exhaust manifold and the turbo :good2:

I also had a few drops of oil come out the engine vent and drip on the steering cylinder. I assume its supposed to drip since Deere put a tube for it to vent down there. Anyone leak a bit from the crankcase vent. (only 4 drips):good2:

If it's just 4-5 drops, when the tractor was new it was parked over either gravel or dirt so I probably would not have noticed.

This whole summer it's been inside on concrete so it's easy to see stuff, no runs, no drips, no errors.

Pictures~

Here are the pictures of the rubber tube and the bit of oil that is leaking. I have to guess that this is a crankcase vent. I am not concerned about it enough to really look:yahoo:. I have to guess that I maybe spit some of it out when the subsoiler was burried in tree roots and I almost stalled the tractor in low (R1's have some serious grip):thumbup1gif:. Just breaking it in..LOL...

Brian.. I have the same leak.. I was told by two different shops its normal IF you work your machine like it was intended to be worked.

Hey guys, The moisture at the vent tube will be directly proportional to how hard you work the machine. A hard day might make her drip a little while an easy day might leave you with a dry tube.:thumbup1gif:
