    Maybe I am in brain fog territory again and not thinking clearly. I guess I could install them like Kylew did and just get longer bolts. But installed where the spacers are sure would make a nice looking installation and having them face forward just makes for sense to me.

    Guess I may just order a pair and see how it works out.....
    In a perfect world, yes they should face forwards-but KYL has the front QH so I think that's why the issue was for him-I did say there where not compatible with that option to my knowledge


    For your 2520, yes removing the spacers would be the best thing to try. FYI if you had the front QH it would fill the space where the spacers are. On the new machines they are plastic and not metal!

    Thanks Ken. I’ll order a pair later today - have to finish my mowing before the rain comes. Hopefully it will work as planned but will get them on somehow. Also want to double check about the rears but with my first quick glance they won’t work as I have a totally different draw bar setup.

    It will be so nice to have an easy front tie down even though I don’t even have a trailer right now.....

    These will fit a 2025R as well. The rear bolts are fine. The front top bolts are too short with the guard installed. The bottom bolts are fine.

    I also got the combo hooks from Ken as well. And a hydraulic pressure gauge. I agree that site will lighten a wallet.

    With my setup if I put them on the outside I would need all 4 longer bolts. Trying to avoid that....

    Sine you have the backhoe you should turn the rears to face in, otherwise you'll struggle to use them.

    I tested them and my straps hook to them just fine. I like them close to the backhoe frame as it leaves the center ground clearance open. They don't hang down much below the backhoe frame so there is very little lost clearance.

    Stan,
    Yes, you and Ken are correct. They are designed to face forward, but I have the front quick hitch on the 1025. With them forward, I can't install the QH large pin that holds the QH adapter bracket. I'd have to remove the tie down brackets in order to use the QH. That's why I faced them backwards and I used spacers to give me a little more clearance between the frame for inserting a hook. Having them face backwards allows me to be able to use the QH and I don't have to remove them.

    Makes perfect sense. They will work fine the way you installed them.

    I asked because for how I want to install them they must face forward - at least that is what I think. We’ll see once I get to installing them.

    How many years I struggled with tying down the front of this tractor with the loader on. I ended up using axle straps on the front but still wasn’t really happy.

    Thank you Stan for your interest and posts regarding compatibility with your 2520. I have always struggled with a good tie down location on our 2520 especially with the loader or forks on. I've spent $25 on worse things. So just ordered a set myself to give them a test fit.
