    Cruze control mowing

    Greetings: Does anyone know if the JD 1025r cruze control can be adjusted, (Low gear) increasing the speed a trace. There's a slight decrease from full pedal to cruze engagement. The mower can definitely handle an increase in speed.
    Thanks in advance.

    It's a mechanical linkage that needs a little bit of forward pedal movement to disengage. Without that little bit of pedal movement, I suppose the linkage could bind and not disengage. I'm not even sure if it has a mechanical release if you hit the brake with the cruise engaged; I believe it just holds the forward pedal in a given position.

    Any chance you could mow in high gear with a lower cruise setting? I always mow in high, but I also don't have any hills to contend with.

    Oddly enough my 2014 X540 is the same way. I wouldn't mess with it. Not unless you feel like buying your neighbor some new hedges or garage door. lol

    Break disengages the cruise. Nice thought but unless you are mowing 10 acres or trasporting, it is pretty useless.

    My dad 74 found out the hard way why not to use cruise control when mowing.
    He ended up 30 yards down the ravine and plowed into a fallen tree with his new x700 series mower.
    He got lucky the tractor didn't flip over on him. All he ended up with was a few scrapes and damaged his blower unit for the bigger

    boy am i glad he's was ok! like u said it could of been way--------worse. back when my dad bought his 318 in 1986. he was mowing next to my uncle's electric fence. got all excited about something-and kinda ran the hood underneath the wire fence for a ways. he didn't get hurt-other than his pride, but never having anything that was hydrostat he just got mixed up. then he bumped the fence posts a couple of times, so he built a bumper out of a old truck spring-then.

    Hi John Deere 1025R TLB
    You Said "Nice thought but unless you are mowing 10 acres or transporting, it is pretty useless." I do mow 10+ acres and transport regularly a bit over a mile up the road and I find the cruse control useless there to. I have never found any where I could use the cruse to advantage.
    I find it a waste of time.
    Regards John

    My brake DOES NOT disengage the cruise. You have to tap the forward pedal.

    Yes, it almost caused several accidents because of this non intuitive system.

    I use it going up and down a mile hike when I use my tractor to haul stuff.

    I never use it on the 2320. Never use it on the 445. I think it is a cheap way to add a useless selling point on the tractors.
