Maintenance - Service & Repair / 825 Oil Capacity
« on: September 27, 2019, 02:42:14 PM »
I have a 1993? I believe 825.  Trying to figure out the amount of oil I should put in.  My owner's manual says 16 quarts.  I have put in 11 quarts and on the dip stick there are two marks, about 1/2" apart.  I'm at the top mark on the dip stick with only 11 quarts in.  Looks like the correct factory dip stick and oil pan to me.  Only 1700 hours on the tractor.  Should I dump in more oil which I know will bring it way beyond the top mark on the dip stick?  Am I confused?  Or is this a normal thing?  Don't want to run it too low on oil.

Thanks for any help.

Just wanted to say "hi"!  I've been a lurker on here since the first of the year.  A little bit about myself.  I'm married to a wonderful wife for 47 years and have 2 children.  I retired from my day job a couple years ago, and have been a hired hand on the family farm, about 1500 hundred acres, half beans, half corn.  So it still kind of keeps me busy. 

For the past 30 years, I've been using an old Allis WD and a Farmall 706 around the farm for snow removal and other things you use a tractor for.  As I am getting older, my wife thought I should have a tractor with a cab for snow removal in the winter.  Which leads me to this site.  I picked up a 1993 825 from my neighbor, has 1700 hrs on it, and runs really well.  Especially after I chased down a few electrical problems.   :P :P   Anyhow I'm sure I will have a few questions in the days to follow about hooking up some LED lights, but that will be another topic.  Just wanted to say "hi" for now and post a picture of my old girl, that got nicknamed Jenny.   :) :)   So glad I found this forum!

So here's a picture.  It has a 9' snow blade that came off a 5 yd dump truck that was re-fabricated to fit.  Now we probably won't get any snow.  lol
