I keep a log with receipts and record all maintenance, mods, implement purchase and any repairs, hours, etc. I put less than 100 hrs annually so I change all fluids and filters every March. This includes radiator flush and coolant change. I also regularly grease, and lube anything possible including joystick SCV, linkage Q hitch, 3 pt etc. I keep tire pressure at what it says on the tire. I treat all my fuel and use a MR funnel to fuel the rig up. I add one additive to every third tank fill too but I cant remember its name as I’m typing. I learned it from Sulley. Very happy with this additive. Tractor runs absolutely perfect and don’t have any problems or issues. Other than the one additive in addition to JD fuel treatment, I use OEM JD products. It all has worked very well so I don’t drive myself nuts trying to find a “better” oil or anything else. I figure if I use the JD stuff for my JD rig from the JD counter than everything should work fine and it does. I read most the posts regarding break in oil. I never used break in oil after the first change, didn’t feel it was necessary.

I kept (still have) every receipt and a log in the owners manual (that I turned in) of 3 full services I did on my 1025R in the 470 hrs I put on it. When I traded it in I asked the dealer if he wanted receipts and he said no. So now I got all these receipts that will go in the burn pile.

I find that individuals purchasing used equipment seem to have more of an interest in service records and receipts than do dealers. The dealer probably dislikes that you even wrote in the Operator's Manual. :)

It probably never got to the new owner. I told the dealer to let the new owner know I can provide all the receipts to him if he wanted but never heard back from him on that. I figured he didn’t want me talking to the guy asking what he paid. I frankly don’t care about that part knowing I wasn’t getting top dollar trading but I did better than alot of guys. He called me out of the blue with the interested buyer seated in front of him asking about what I did for service. I told him 100, 200, and 400 hrs full service and said it’s in the manual like I told you. He said he forgot.
