    Who is using two post lift for 1025R

    I'm picking up a new two post next week if it comes in as planned.

    I'm looking for ways to use it to help with general maintenance including on my 1025.

    My biggest question is what are you using as pickup points? The 1025 is just short enough that i'm
    not seeing a good way to pickup on the frame.

    Will a two post handle the weight? Maybe a dum question but I know tractors are heavier than people think. When i hauled my 1020 home on a car hauler it maxed it out. I don't think in would have the Ba**s to lift it mover head. I know alot of these two post lifts are over rated in the amount they will lift. I watched a video on YouTube about it. Good Luck and most of all be Safe.

    Atlas makes a lift attachment that supports the tires/wheels that is rated for 5,000 capacity. Probably other options as well... One thing I'd recommend though is to go pick up some high position jack stands. One of the dangers about getting something up on a lift can be balance depending on what you are doing. The tall jack stands are cheap insurance as far as safety is concerned. Harbor Freight sells a nice set for a very reasonable price BTW...

    i will plan on getting the tall jack stands for sure. Better safe than sorry.

    I'll look up Atlas. If i can't find anything i'll make or have something made.

    I don't think he has to worry about a 1025R. JD uses lots of aluminum these days and naked they are around 1500 lb. Your 1020 was from the good ole days when they made tractors out of iron. It probably weighed 5000 lbs naked.

    What Make/Model of two post are you acquiring? Asymmetrical? I was going to acquire for the shop at my main home, but have put it off as we're going to sell and retire somewhere more tax friendly. Hopefully, at that time I'll be in the market. So I like to know what you think of yours when you've had a chance to utilize it.

    What i'm getting is a SA10 Challenger two post it can be setup symmetrical or Asymmetrical.

    At this point i believe i'm going to set it up symmetrical.

    I'll add some pictures when i get it.

    Congrats on retirement. I have about 15 yrs before i can retire, we did just down size by building a smaller house and a bigger
    barn

    To many grand kids for us to move south but i'd sure like to.
