 50 hr Break-in Service

My NH 1925 is quickly approaching 50 hrs and I'm getting ready for the first service. There has been some previous discussion on what oil to use - syn. or petro. I've found some test results that show AMSOIL to be the best, compared to Mobil Delvac, Cummins and Shell Rotella T, but at $5.00 a quart is it worth it? Will synthetic oil extend the life of the tractor compared to using regular oil? Also, the manual says to change the HST filter and hyd. fluid filter but it doesn't say anything about changing the hyd. fluid after the first 50 hours. Is it a good idea to go ahead and change the hyd. fluid? The book says to change after 300 hrs. It seems to me that if you change the filter you should go ahead and change the fluid. When it comes to filters, are the manufacturers filters just as good as the others? Any opinions or feedback on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I also agree with the first 50 hour hydro oil change, even though the JD manual doesn't call for the 50Hour service change either. You will find that peoples view of Petro oil vs. Synthetic seem to vary as much as the weather. If you don't have the time to invest in finding the numerousstudies that clearly indicate the benefits of Synthetics over petroleum products.What do you have to lose by Spending or investing the $20-30 dollars it will cost you for the Syntheticchange. All the advise and statistics don't mean crap until they are put into practice. Look at the facts,not opinions. Don't forget that the filter is just as important as the oil.A quality microglass/fiber filter will be in the 1-5 micron particle range, cheap paper types like FRAM are generally anywhere from 5 to +20 microns. And thats assuming the paper hasn't developed a hole that essentiallymakes the filter a "total by-pass"! And yes, those are FACTS! I recommend you vist the various oil postings on this site. The yearly savings in fuel costs I see from using Synthetics, makes me cringe at spending $1.50 a quart for apetroleum product. Decide for yourself..

 50 hr Break-in Service

I recently did the 50 Hr service on my NH 1720.My unit is still within the warranty period . To insure I don't jepordize the warranty by using inferioror unsuitable products I chose the recomended New Holland manufactured oils and filters. The extra I may or may not have spent is insignificate to the time worring about band names of oil and filters. I would rather spend my time using the tractor.

Using a "better" hydraulic filter with a lower micron rating than the OEM filter may easily create a restriction similar to a plugged filter. This could damage expensive components, especially in hydro drive units. Don't second guess the manufacturer of the tractor you have chosen to buy. Use OEM filters & oil, or do the homework to ensure that alternatives ARE as good as OEM.

Kevin,I have a New Holland sub compact as well and have changed both the motor and hydrolic over to Amsoil. These are fine oils, and I have been using them for over 5 years now. I also have a Ford F250 with an International Navistar diesel engine in it. I have used Amsoil exclusively in that just after the break in period. If anyone tells you that you can't use synthetic in that tractor, due to warranty reasons, please let me know. Amsoil has had problems in the past with manufacturers pushing people to use thier oils and that is just not fair. Any oil meeting SAE requirments is suitable for warranty retention. In short, feel free to use it. It's great. Saves money too. And it will definately save your tractor for the long haul.
