 Changing Transmission Fluid

I'm at the 50 hour mark on my 2210. The book says to change the transmission fluid and check the filter. Do I need to disconnect the loader hydraulics before I begin? Are they connected in any way? I know it's a dumb question, but I had to ask first before I did something "dumber".

Anything more to look at during this 50 hour check, besides an oil change and a look at the air filter?

Are you sure it doesn't say to change the filter and check the fluid?

 Changing Transmission Fluid

bmeyer

I will tell you what I do and wait for the other guys to
give me 'hell'. On my tractors, I change the hydraulic
filter/filters. Supposedly, you are supposed to change
the fluid to get out the metal etc. I was a little
skeptical of this because that is what a filter/filters
are supposed to do. I know others will not agree with
this. The only exception to this is if you use the
tractor alot and under long and hard periods of work.
I do not. I use mine pretty lightly, so I cant see
throwing out completely good hydraulic fluid, just to
follow a manual. Besides, that fluid is expensive if
you use the manufacturers recommended type. I do
change my filters each season(4 times a year instead).
I will do a complete change at 500 hours. I can just
feel the 'hell' I am gonna get!

No hell to give here, but at a low level the fluid molecules get torn apart by shear pressures which reduces their ability to lubricate. Additionally, accumulated moisture will create sludge and the additives wear out.

Yeah I am pretty sure it would be change the filters and check the fluid level. There is no way to check the filter with out cutting it open.

 Changing Transmission Fluid

The manual says to change the tranmission oil and filter after the first 50 hours. I'm supposed to "check" and clean the sump suction screen according to the manual.

My fluid looks nice and pink but I want to make sure I follow all the rules in case there is a need for warranty work. Besides - its a nice rainy day project.

Before I drain it, is it best to warm it up by running the machine first?

I think in much older threads there was discussion about fibers that had gotten into the transmission fluid on earlier models of JD when they were new. I did change my fluid/filters at 100 hours and I thought I saw a couple of fibers and metal filings in the oil. It wasn't that difficult and gave me peace of mind. The biggest pain-in-the-neck is collecting all the old fluid and returning it to the dealer.

The filters are different than the suction screen. Change the filters with every oil change.

The suction screen can be removed, cleaned with solvents and maybe compressed air, and then replaced.

I changed the transmission fluid and filter this morning. It's a messy job! Everything went well. I did find metal flakes in the bottom of the bucket I used to catch the oil. Not many, but they were there.

Thanks for the advice.
