 4000 Ten Series 50 hour break in service

How many of you did the full transmission sump drain, filter replacements, and suction screen inspection and cleaning at 50 hrs.???? I am at 49.7 hours and don't have the suction screen gasket yet but have everything else. Did the engine oil and filter today and have done everything else except trans. oil and filters? My buddy who is a John Deere Rep. said it is really not that big of a deal and 99% of the time the oil he has seen come out of the trans. was clean as was the filters screens. He told me I really did not need to change the oil and filters at 50 hrs. Did any of you find any kind of debry in the suction screen or hydraulic 3 pt. hitch lift filter screen? I am inclined to do the service as per the manual if for no other reason than to stay within requirements of the warrantee and is cheap insurance. Any comments, thoughts, or suggestions. I didn't want to attempt the trans. oil and filter change until I had the suction screen gasket in hand.

Betcha a buck you find some metal shavings on the screen. I'm with you... do the full service.

I just re-used the same gasket on the sump screen. Didn't even think about getting a new one.

I just completed the full 50 hr service on my 4110. My dealer told me not to do the tranny (HST) until 200 hrs, but I felt better sticking to the manual. Glad I did, as there were plenty of metal shavings on the screen. I also reinstalled the original gasket/o-ring with no problem.

I am only at 25 hours but I already have every thing in the garage for my 50 hour service. Routine scheduled maintenance has to be the cheapest insurance policy available. My dealer said it would not be necessary to do the trannny at 50 but if it was his he would do it. There is bound to be some metal shaveings in the filter/screen. As far as the oil the origional oil is break in oil. I Personally can not see why anyone would not change the oil and filter every 50 useing the best synthetic or recommended oil available.

I just had my dealer perform my 50 hr service on my 4710 hydro. I wanted to develop a service relationship and record so if a warrentee issue happens it cant be blamed on incorrect maintance. Cheap insurance for down the road.
The members of CTB helped me select my tractor, my name was Walt20.

How much did the dealer charge you for the 50 hour service? Did you or any of the rest of you use the low viscosity or standard Hy Gard?

Doc,
How much do you use your tractor? I would be spending a LOT on mine at 20 gal per change + a couple of filters So Sad and 60 hours every 2 months or less....

I'm not sure where the 60 gal comes in but if Your capacity is that large it would seem your service interval would be longer. No matter what the hours of individual use scheduled maintenance is the most cost effective warranty. Mine takes 13 quarts and the first Transmission service is at 50 hours and then every 200 hours after that. I do use the low Viscosity Hy-Guard. Just curious but how do you put so many hours on that acreage ? It seems with that capacity and hours that you would change your tranny fluid/filters every season assumeing your season is not year-round.

Chief,
I have a 4610 so the prices may be different.

9.9 gal of Low Viscosity hydraulic oil was $89.10.
1 filter was $34.09 and the other was $21.75. 1 hour labor at $40.00 = $184.94.

I questioned using the Low Viscosity fluid, since the OM says for my climate to use Hy Gard. He said he went to one of those JD training schools and JD recommends Low Viscosity in all eHydros.


slowrev,
After the initial 50 service, the hydraulic fluids are changed every 400 hours. The filters are changed every 200.
