    2032R/2038R Ignition Key Location

    Has anyone else had issues with catching their boots on the key and bending or breaking it? I have gone thru several keys and they arenít cheap but in addtition to that I am afraid at some point Iím going to break one off and not be able to get it out. So far they have bent and cracked and Iíve been able to replace before breaking off completely.

    I did take one key and ground most of the head off so there was just enough to grab on to and that worked for a while but I eventually caught that one too. It would be nice to figure out some kind of guard or other solution. If anyone has ideas let me know. Iím sure smaller feet would help

    I can sympathize with your problem. I've always scratched my head and wondered why on some tractors JD insisted on putting the key dead center on the front of the console - the area closest to the operator. On previous generations it was located more to the right past the apex of the console curve and more out of harms way.

    Do you find you hit it with your boot while operating the tractor or only when getting in/out of the seat?

    I've hit mine with my boot and with my knee, getting on with the knee and getting off with the boot.

    I did it once with my size 13 foot, but I was careful/mindful not to again for a few weeks and now I guess it's just muscle memory.

    Oof, I haven't had any problems with the location, *yet*, but I've had it only 11 hours. Time will tell. I also questioned the location as being weird.

    Key was bent when dealer dropped off new 2032r

    Agree that Deere put this ignition in a sub-optimal place. I got my new 2032r dropped off 2 weeks ago. Dealer pulled away. I went to take the key out of tractor after dealer left and it was bent at a 60 degree angle. Plus I only received one key. Dealer ordered me two more at no charge. You can also order new keys on Amazon. Two for $12.

    I am usually fine once Iím in the seat but getting off I seem to catch it on my boots. I agree though that it could have been to the side and slightly higher. I try to be careful and keep a spare key with me but was hoping someone in the GTT world had come up with a creative solution.
