    Storing over winter

    Do you all store your tractor with bh and fel still attached or is it better to remove them and put lumber under the tires? It will be stored in a garage while Iím enjoying the sun in southern Florida

    don't know how a bh is mounted.

    I store mine with the front end loader mounted and blade on the rear in case I am at home and we have an appreciable snow. Both blades rest on a piece of wood to eliminate contact with the floor and that takes the weight off the tractor and eliminated the tractor having to try to hold the weight up while static.

    I store hydraulic equipment attached and ready to go, and will do so with the tractor this winter. I store several vehicles, boats, yard equipment over the Minnesota winter. IMHO, battery tender at all times while in storage is a must, everything else is optional.

    Q
    Personally, I wouldn't leave the battery in the tractor all winter with no tender.
    I always have my tractor parked on thick rubber stall mats so its not on concrete for extended periods.
    I'd also check all fluids and grease the zirks so you have minimal maintenance to do in spring.
    I'd place some baits/traps for the rodents as well. Fall and spring are your worry for Mickey and friends.

    As mentioned, check your manual as well for Deere specifics.

    If you can, I always try and keep all hydraulic cylinders fully retracted. That will likely mean that you have to leave them on the tractor. I would also try and pull the battery as mentioned.

    My 1025R gets work all year long. In the winter I take off the FEL, iMatch and 3 point hitch; install the 54" Snowblower and it's then ready for winter duty.
