 50 hour service!!!!

I can't believe I am actually looking foward to an oil change but I am. Tomorrow after about an hout of FEL work I have to do the 50 hour maintenance. I have only had the machine slighly less than month but have gotten plenty out of it.

I must lead a boring life cause all week I have been waiting for this!

After you spill your first gallon of Hyguard all over the floor you will change your mind about that. Laughing out loud! I was the same way about my 50 hr. too. Have you checked the torque on the wheel lugs and loader bolts yet? Don't forget that. Have fun!

I think I will be doing it outdoors, so a spill won't be TOO bad. I may do it in the garage then I will be careful Wink yeah right

I have been checking the loader and wheel nuts but they're fine. My dealer put little white paint marker lines on every nut so I can see if they move and at least I know they checked em' as well.

If I spill anything you'll be the first to know Smile

I just poured all the used oil I had lying around in containers into a 55 gallon drum that EVENTUALLY I will bring to the dump to pour in the recycle tank. I am sick of making all the trips to the local station, I am going for the once a year plan. Figure I'll put the drum on the truck with the FEL and pump it off at the dump with one of those drill pumps. I have apower inverter in the truck so I can use a corded drill.

I would check the the wheel and loader hardware with a torque wrench and verify torque even if they did slippage mark the hardware. The dealer slippage marked mine as well and when I checked it; I got as much as a 1/3 of a turn before the torque wrench clicked on some fasteners. I checked mine out of the Better safe than sorry line of thinking. Plus I got to see how hardware could loose torque while doing aircraft maintenance. Usually, most critical hardware was torque checked every 9 - 11 hours until the torque stabilized. If it took more than 3 attempts to stabilize, we disassembled to inspect for problems.

Not real scientific torque wise but I do keep a rachet and some sockets near the tractor and every few days I give everything a little crank just to see.

So far everything has been tight. I will recheck all torque settings tomorrow. Good idea, thanks

 50 hour service!!!!

50 hour service went smooth. Fluids looked like new but tarnny had a fair ammount of metal on the screen and in the fluid. Didn't see it until I poured the fluid into the waste drum. I think some of the small filings/castings hang out at the bottom of the tranny and never make the filter because there isn't enough force to flush them. When you drain they are probbaly the first thing out though. No wonder the switched from 200 hours to 50 hours for the first tranny fluid change.

All nuts were tight don't think any budged, maybe one lug ( 1/8 turn?)but I can't be sure.

One question my machine called for HyGard Lo Vis and I used it, it is light amber in color. The stuff that came out was pink (tranny fluid color) and looked nothing like HyGard. Don't they have HyGard LoVis in Japan?

One thing I forgot to mention was to take a close look at the battery. This issue may not effect the 790 but on my 4410 and other Ten Series hydro. tractors with the trans. cooler in front of the radiator, the battery can leak electolyte (acid) and it gets drawn into the oil cooler and radiator. Mine does this so I check and wash it down after each use. I am currently working the issue with the dealer and they have opened a warranty issue case for a possible technical bulletin fix. It hasn't done this with each use but during long runs when it is very hot outside. I have suggested an Optima battery as a possible fix. Won't be holding my breath waiting for the Optima battery but stranger things have happened.

I have heard this before. 790s have the same issue with leaky batteries and the battery holddown piercing the radiator if it works loose.

Mine is tight and no leaks, I check often. JD may have fixed the problem???

Thanks,
Scott
