    2025R questions

    I got a new 2025R a few days ago. Looking at the owners manual I saw a diagram of the dash lights. There is a couple that I am not sure if they should light up or not. One is for the PTO engagement, another is for the tractor being in 4 wheel drive, and the third is for the parking brake being on. The manual looks like they should light up but I suspect its a somewhat generic owners manual and maybe they are not suppose to light up. If I turn the key and don't start it, I can see the dash is working because everything lights up for a second.

    One problem I'm experiencing is coming from a Kubota. With it you didn't need to put it in neutral to jump off of it and leave it running. I keep getting up and the thing dies. Yesterday I did put it in neutral but didn't set the brake. Lucky I noticed pretty quickly because it was headed across the yard and in a couple of seconds would have headed downhill into the trees. I got it stopped but not before it crushed a landscape light. The Kubota also worked the exact opposite on the hand throttle. I just have a couple of bad habits I need to break from the Kubota.

    I've a gen I 2025R. All those dash lights work on it. Think one of them may not work on gen II. Those owners can chime in. My 4010 (a 2019E by today's naming) did not have any glow plug light but was supposed to. Just had to count a number of seconds after turning the key before turning to start. Put it in 4wd and check that light; should be the lever near your left foot; think forward is "in". Pull up on the parking lever with brakes on, and that light should come on. Pull up on the PTO (or whatever; think there are 2 different kinds now) button, and the PTO light should come on.

    It does not have a 4wd indicator light. Don't ask me why. It isn't like you can really look at the lever and tell very easily.

    PTO and E-brake lights are there.

    I'm curious. What model Kubota did you have? Were you the original owner?

    I'm guessing it was either a very old model or else a previous owner bypassed the seat switch as for the past 20+ years nearly all small tractors have a seat switch that is usually wired in with a neutral switch as dismounting ANY tractor with the engine running and in gear is a major safety faux pas.

    There is no 4wd indicator till you get to a 2032R/2038R.

    It was a BX 2350. For that model you could get off it with it in gear. That was normal. If you bumped the hat pedals though it died right away.

    kubota bx

    My BX2660 can be dismounted in gear and no brakes locked. Deere makes most things so you have to set the brake to dismount. Probably been sued over safety issues so are building to cover their backside. Kubota will also run the rear PTO with the seat tipped up, does Deere do this? Just curious here. Different manufacturers do different things, some of these are because of getting their butt sued off.

    With my older (2009) 2520 you most definitely can run rear PTO off tractor. Don't know what seat tipped up would have to do with it. Sued or not. IMHO, it's just plain makes good safety sense to have to have tractor in neutral to get off while running! Can you have PTO engaged on the orange one and get off with tractor running? Can't do it on the green one.
