I just purchased a 2015 825i with 145 hours on it. I am replacing a Polaris Ranger that we have had since it was new in 2013. The only reason I am switching from the Ranger is I plow 3 large driveways and the 825i has a deluxe cab with poly doors and a heater and the Ranger only has a roof, windshield and a winch lift plow. The 825 also has the Powertach hydraulic plow. It's a big upgrade. My question is what is normal RPMs to get this thing rolling? It's taking about 3800 rpms to get it to 5mph in high and then I can bring it back to about 3400 to speed up to 7-10mph. After that is seems about right to me. My Ranger gets moving pretty easily and doesn't take anywhere near that to get up to speed. Does this sound like a worn out belt? I was reading through the forum and most folks seem to get a lot more life out of their drive belts. I've never driven any JD's other than an old CX we still have so I wouldn't know if this is normal or not.
