Great Question and One we Just Published in our August 2018 Power & Performance E-Newsletter.
Always Consult the Operators Manual for Oil Change Intervals for Each Model of Tractor. On AGCO Power Engines Special Break-In Oil is Installed and it Recommended NOT to Change at 50 Hour Service Interval but to the Normal Scheduled Maintenance of Maximum of 500 Hours.
Now depending on operating style just like operating a vehicle...City Driving where you start stop often and do not allow engine to get to operating temperature I would change sooner as you don't warm the tractor enough to burn out impurities that can get collected in the oil. But normal operations and the engine gets warmed to normal operating temperatures on normal usage then you can run out to 500 Hours before recommended change interval.
Now this is assuming you are using High Quality Filters & Lubricants like AGCO Parts Supplies. There is lots of differences what's inside a Filter and How Oil is Created and aftermarket products you should consult the supplier as to their recommendations and the liability they will cover. Often it's cheaper and easier to just use Genuine AGCO Parts and have no worries if you are protecting your investment.
