I have a John Deere 1025R that I use in very rough terrain. So far I haven't hit anything to do damage, but I would like to prevent damage. I have been looking for a skid plate for the underside of my 1025R. A company called Bro-Tech makes a set of skid plates for a 1026R. I believe a 1026R is no longer made, but that it has the same frame as the 1025R. I contacted the Bro-Tech, but they were unable to tell me if their skid plates would fit a 1025R as well as the 1026R. Has anyone purchased the skid plates from Bro-Tech and has anyone tried them on a 1025R? Any thoughts regarding the skid plates would be appreciated.
