    Popped wheelie on 2025R!!!!

    So after mowing the yard I dropped the deck at the waterhose to clean it and scrape it for the first time. I had my box blade nearby and was going to grab it and run it out to the barn on my way to grab the loader and forks to lift the deck up in the air. So with naked Tractor I hook to the box blade no big deal. On my way to the barn I see a couple high spots that need graded down so I back onto a very slight incline in the middle of the yard to grab some material from a tree I had removed and when I pushed the forward pedal my front end goes skywards! I let off and quickly lower the BB and it sets back down but I was about as shocked as it gets. This happens to me twice before I get back to the barn and install the loader. I mow very very steep terrain with my machine and do quite a bit of loader work with it. Itís the first time the front end has ever felt light and especially ever came off the ground. Idk how anyone could use one of these tractors with rear implements without a loader for the balance weight. I donít think the weight bar on the front could weigh enough. I could be wrong but I was caught completely off guard. I have raised the front off the ground on our farm tractors plenty of times due to either weight or just torque of the machine but my 2025R has always spun. I found the perfect combo to really catch me off guard and if I hadnít felt that experience before it could have been an accident.

    Glad you got it set down before anything terrible happened. I deal with some pretty steep terrain and I never take off the loader, I agree that it provides much needed balance/ballast for these tractors.

    Off topic, but my 2030 with the loader off ( I always remove to brush hog) and the brush hog on, has the power and traction to lift the front wheels when I first let the clutch out at PTO speed. But the wheelie is short lived

    The good thing about a 3ph attachment is it limits the distance the front wheels can come off the ground. . . unless you break that top link. If the top link goes, all sorts of bad things can and probably will happen.

    Glad nothing bad happened in your case, especially since it was a new experience with that tractor. I'm sure you already know that lowering the 3ph simply took the weight off the back but would not stop a torque overturn until the internal cylinders hit the end of the ram as they are single acting cylinders. Good move to get the weight off though; that also limited traction to the rear wheels.

    Yeah. My 3046r with a cab would do that with the MX6. I would run around steering with just the brakes!

    chuckle.....thanks for the laugh.
    But, the fact is safety is nothing you should ever take lightly or you may pay for the laugh with your life.

    It was meant to be funny. I did not think anyone here would be dumb enough to try it. Maybe on the orange tractor though.

    On the other hand, total disregard for safety does create the basis for some great stories.
