The 1990 John Deere 260 Garden Tractor is a efficient piece of equipment that is known for its durability and performance. However, like any other piece of machinery, it may require regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly.

One of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to maintaining the 1990 John Deere 260 Garden Tractor is to check the oil level and change it if necessary. The oil should be changed every 50 hours of operation or at least once a year, whichever comes first. Additionally, the air filter should be checked and cleaned or replaced as needed. This will help ensure that the engine is properly lubricated and running smoothly.

Another important aspect of maintaining the 1990 John Deere 260 Garden Tractor is to keep the blades sharp. This can be done by either sharpening them yourself or taking them to a professional. Dull blades can not only make mowing less efficient but can also cause damage to the mower deck.

It's also important to check the tire pressure and adjust them accordingly. Tires that are under-inflated can cause uneven wear and reduce the efficiency of the tractor.

It's also important to check the battery and charging system. A weak battery or a malfunctioning charging system can cause problems with starting the engine.

It's recommended to have the garden tractor serviced by a professional every 250 hours or annually, whichever comes first. The professional should check the spark plug, change the oil, check the air filter, check the fuel filter, check the blades, check the tire pressure and check the battery and charging system.

Regular maintenance will help ensure that the 1990 John Deere 260 Garden Tractor is always ready to tackle your lawn care needs. By following the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule and addressing any issues as they arise, you can ensure that your tractor is running at peak performance and minimize the need for repairs. Keep in mind that this model is quite old, and some parts may not be available anymore, and some replacement parts might need to be sourced from aftermarket suppliers.
