    Mice hiding in my 2025

    When I start my tractor I see 1 or 2 mice running out from under the tractor. I've looked everywhere for a nest and haven't been able to find one.

    My question to anyone with an gen 2 2025r is there somewhere i could be missing to look?

    Or any others who have had similar problems locating nests?

    Never had a problem with that, but in behind the cowling and dash is a hot spot for them little critters.

    I've had a nest somewhere between the fender pan and transmission on mine. And that is exactly where they come out when you start it - down underneath.

    Just make damn sure they aren't making their way into the air filter.
    Not that I would be happy if they chewed wires either...

    I use a stainless steel pot scrubber on a piece of 14 gauge electrical wire to fill the air cleaner intake on my 1025, which seems to be a prime spot for mice to nest. It's easy to use and cheap to implement.

    Adopt a couple barn cats. I did. They often snooze on the floorboard of the tractor. Never seen a mouse in the area since...

    That is a trick idea, I park my old sporty car for the winter and have had to replace air filters they tore up.
    I stuffed a towel in the snorkel last fall and Mighty Mouse dragged the darn thing out.
    I also stuff a towel on my 1025 when I park it even in the summer. Forgot about it one day and remembered after five minutes of mowing, sure saw the filter minder I installed worked right.

    So you can leave this in place I assume and no real restriction occurs?

    I haven't tried. I pull it out and let it hang (the wire is attached to the radiator) while I use the tractor and then put it back in when I shut down for the night. It would probably run fine at idle, but I would believe it would be too restrictive when running it at higher speed.

    I lost an air cleaner in my ATV when a mouse family took up residence. Now I just stuff the intake with the scrubbers when the machines are going to sit and I haven't had further issues with mice getting in.
