    54 inch blower Hydraulic hook ups

    I just hooked up my 54" snowblower for first time. Pretty easy and painless. The one thing I can't quite figure out is how the hydraulics are matched up. Right now it's hooked the way you see it in the picture below but it doesn't work right. can someone please post a picture of how it should be setup?

    I will go look later on and get back to you, I will say one of the very first things I did when I got mine was go to Green Farm Parts and order the color coded caps/plugs for my lines so I only had to guess the first time. You are going to love that blower!

    Thanks. I'm not looking forward to snow but at least I'll get to try this bad boy out once it starts to fly.

    looks to me like the color coding is mixed up. connect them red to red, green to green, etc.

    Problem is the colors are different and matching the ones that are the same doesn't work.

    54 blower

    Let me try to explain to you

    The up and down cylinder has 2 hoses 1 up and 1 down

    Put one in the black and one in the green coupler try the up and down on your lever.

    If it doe snot work then switch to the yellow and silver try again.

    One will work and one will not. If the up is down and the down is up then reverse the hoses.

    Then do the same with the chute rotation hoses using the other two couplers if the left right is reversed reverse the hoses.

    Then once you have it as you want go toa farm or auto store and buy some colored cable ties. and place on on the hose side and on on the coupler side A lot easier and cheaper than JD rubber caps. And they stay on.

    Yup, like Tony said, adjust the connections so they work the way they are suppose to. I had the same problem with my loader. Had to get the correct set of colored caps and plugs.

    I have a 1025R. This is the quick connect layout for the snowblower and/or blade..... Red - Lower, Blue - Lift, Yellow - Rotate right or blade angle right, Black - Rotate left or blade angle left. Not sure if they are the same on your tractor. See pictures for color designations.

    MMM lift (single acting cylinder) is connected to black connector.

    FEL - Red lower, Blue lift, Black bucket roll back, Yellow bucket dump (has regen when lever is pushed all the way to right)
