I've put about 20 hours on my 3025E. I'm still learning a lot. I seem to be getting a groaning/moaning sound when I apply throttle to get rolling. I don't always remember to increase RPM from idle before I start to move. What RPM should I use for "normal" operations? Can I damage anything if I am attempting to pull a stump and I max out the throttle? I would imagine JD made the transmission strong enough to handle max engine output even if the tractor can't move.

I have noticed a little "play" in the loader pivot points. The bucket can "flop" about an inch or so. When I grease the zircs the pins can move in and out a little too. I hope that is normal. I just ordered a quick disconnect for my grease gun :)

Thanx,
Mike

You've got a hydro transmission. You can't hurt it in any way based on the engine speed. The engine drives a hydraulic pump. The transmission runs off of that pump. If hydro pressure gets to high, it goes into bypass.

Thanx, that is what I thought. Is the groaning sound a result of running the RPM too low?

All hydros are louder when the rpms are lower or at least more noticeable. Same when it’s cold. Run the throttle up some and most of it will go away.

I have a 3025E and I run it at full throttle just like it's designed too. As other posters have said you have a hydro, you won't hurt it at high RPM's. Yes, there is a little bit of slop in the FEL pivot points.

I run my 3032E around 1800 rpm when box blading or doing FEL work.

My pins also have some side to side slack in them. My mom's 1025R loader had a nut fall off, dealer replaced for free, so I went thru it and applied blue Loctite to the big loader nuts. Think they are 24mm. Check your lug nuts and all hardware before 50 hours, it's normal for stuff to loosen up on a new machine.
