    Smile Skid Plate for a 1025R

    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.

    Me as well.
    Contacted Richard at Bro Tek to see if any skidplates were planned for the 1025R around mid May
    His response
    "I wish.. it will b 2-3 months at best.."

    Sounds encouraging but would not count on it . .

    Asked whether the 1026 model works on the 1025R he stated the only JD model they make is for the 2305 which is not what the website states;
    not sure what's up with that response

    Member Martincom posted this in another thread:

    "Bro-tek has had the 1026R skid plate listed for a number of years on his web page, but not available to order. When I spoke with him a year or so ago, he indicated his web designer was a bit over ambitious. Also, the local dealership changed hands and the new owners were no longer willing to loan him tractors to develop prototypes from."

    I gave up looking for a skid plate and have designed my own. I took the plans for the plate to a local fabricator and should have a prototype in a week or two. I'll post photos when I have it installed.

    How about some photos & dimensions BEFORE you have it installed?

    Prototype of Skid Plate

    I finally got the steel plate back from the metal shop. The rear piece fit well, but the front piece needed a lot of modifications and I added a middle plate so everything underneath is protected. The only drawback I see so far is that it reduces the clearance by about 1.5" top 2" across the rear part of the tractor and I will need to add an access hole or two for greasing, although it is only 8 bolts to remove the plates for access to the grease fittings. With the skid plates, you cannot use the mid deck mover, but with the mid deck mower, you probably don't need a skid plate.

    I still need to test the skid plate in some brush and rugged terrain to see how it performs (although I will not purposely hit things) I want to see if it will keep the brush from grabbing everything underneath the tractor.

    I still need to modify my plans which I will share with anyone interested. (it may take me a month or so, so don't expect too soon) Here are a few photos of the skid plates installed. Overall cost so far is about $120 and three days of work.

    You don't use your tractor for mowing, do you?
