Hello, I am new here and new to tractors, bought a 1025r bought it with 100 hrs on it and in the 1-1/2 yrs I’ve had it I’ve added 176 hrs nice tractor I use it all the time for everything but I have noticed that when I leave the loader bucket elevated by day break the bucket has dropped in height, also I bought a set of pallet forks and with weight on them the drop also, I am suspecting air in the hydraulic system and wondering how to bleed the air out or is there a utube video on this, thank

Welcome from New York!

It's common for a loader and / or bucket to drop a certain amount over time, with the acceptable amount of drop being measured in inches per hour. Here's a chart for some different loader models. The H120 and 120R loaders aren't shown, but you'll get the idea.

Search for "leakdown" or "leak down" and you'll find several threads discussing the issue. It's nothing to be worried about if your rate of drop is similar to that experienced by others.

Its best to set an implement down when you are done using the tractor, such as setting the bucket down on the ground. For it to drop is normal.
