John Deere 1025R Oil Filter Cross Reference Info

Last updated 9/23/22 The John Deere 1025R is quickly becoming the most widely used sub compact tractor in America. With a wide variety of available attachments and capable 1.3L Yanmar diesel engine, it’s easy to see why. This is a major competitor to Kubota’s popular residential tractor lineup. This article should provide you with enough John Deere 1025R oil filter cross reference information to save some money on filters.

John Deere has used the same Yanmar engine since the first 1025R rolled off the assembly line in 2013. This makes it easy to source aftermarket filters. It doesn’t matter what year your 1025R was manufactured, they all use the same filters. In rare situations the aftermarket filters may not be much cheaper than the John Deere filters, so we have included links to the OEM filters to compare prices. The goal of this guide is to provide the John Deere 1025R filter cross reference information needed to successfully maintain your tractor.

John Deere 1025R Oil Filter Cross Reference

John Deere 1025R Oil Filter Cross Reference (Every 200 hours or annually):

OEM M806418 (John Deere OEM M806418 on Amazon) crosses to:

The JD 1025r has an oil capacity of 2.9 quarts of 15w40 or 10w40. The best oil you can use to protect the investment in your tractor is Royal Purple. It consistently outperforms even John Deere oil (which is a great 2nd choice). Since these engines only hold about 3 quarts, it doesn’t cost too much more to upgrade to Royal Purple. Check out the reviews they speak for themselves: Royal Purple 10W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil 1 qt. (Case of 6) This case of 6 quarts will be enough for 2 oil changes. The only exception here: if you are still under 100 hours stick to the recommended JD Break-In oil.

John Deere 1025R Hydraulic Filter Cross Reference (Every 200 hours):

OEM LVA16054 (John Deere Original Hydraulic Filter LVA16054 on Amazon) crosses to:

  • Believe it or not, there are no aftermarket options for the John Deere 1025R hydraulic filter. John Deere has an exclusivity agreement with whoever is making this filter for them. Fortunately, you can pick one up on Amazon if you don’t want to pay dealer price: John Deere OEM Hydraulic Filter LVA16054

John Deere 1025R Air Filter Cross Reference (Every 400 hours):

OEM M131802 (John Deere M131802 on Amazon) crosses to:

John Deere 1025R Fuel Filter Cross Reference (Every 400 hours):

OEM M801101 (John Deere M801101 on Amazon) crosses to:

John Deere 1025R Full Filter Kit LVA21035 (Check Price on Full Kit)

If you are just looking to buy all the filters you need in one package, John Deere makes a kit with all needed filters. These kits are usually a pretty good value compared to buying OEM filters separately. Here’s the kit: John Deere Original Equipment Filter Kit LVA21035

These John Deere 1025R filter cross reference lists by no means contain every filter that crosses with the JD OEM’s. I don’t include low quality filters that can jeopardize your engines performance or lifespan. I also don’t include some car and truck filters that may technically fit on your 1025R. It’s important to stick with the filters we list, just because a Mazda B6Y1-14-302 filter crosses to a JD OEM M806418 (it really does) doesn’t mean it is a good fit for your tractor.

That being said, any time you see a cross reference to a WIX, Baldwin, Donaldson, Fleetguard, K&N or NAPA filter you can be sure it meets or exceeds OEM specs. John Deere has Donaldson and sometimes Champion make most of their filters, so OEM is kind of out the window already. The only thing extra you get by paying OEM dealer price is Donaldson painted a John Deere logo on the can of the filter.

With the exception of the hydraulic filter that you will have to get at the dealer or from Amazon, using this list to buy filters online will likely save around 50% off dealer price. If saving money on filters means you will change them more frequently, your 1025R is going to last a long time.

  1. I need a cup filter wrench that will fit the end of the ORIGINAL oil filter on the Yanmar engine for the 1025R. It is an odd size and we have had no luck in finding one that fits. It is froze on and will not wrench off with strap wrenches. The new replacement filter we bought is an usual size that fits a common fluted wrench. The original filter is a little bigger in diameter and fits nothing we can find. What is the size in millimeters is the ORIGINAL oil filter from Yanmar? Anybody please?

  2. The filter wwrench that has 3 fingers that close on the filter can, with more pressure the harder you pull on whatever you have attached to it. Most are made for 3/8″ drive extension or breaker bar or ratchet. There are two sizes that cover from smallest screw-on to larger automotive sizes. They are really the best, and can fit in tight close areas.

  3. Great useful info, TYVM. To figure out what the OEM hydraulic filter is will require reverse engineering the filter size, flow characteristics, and filter material. Anything Deere does will be very similar to the filters for other tractors with similar sized hydraulic systems. There are only two types of gaskets for spin on filters, either should do for this purpose. A micrometer and thread gauge will give the size of the stud. The flow pressure needs to be determined. That leaves only the filter material. So finding what filter material the other tractor manufacturers specify (and, perhaps, if there is a magnet in the filter) is all that would be left to do.
    Best to You!
