I am getting my 1025R today and I ordered it with the 60D auto-disconnect deck and the 54" front blower. I never thought about it at the time and the dealer never said anything, but I was doing a search and a Kubota guy said on a JD you can't use the front blower with the auto-disconnect deck option and that the dis-connect portion on the pto must be removed before the blower shaft can be installed. For you guys that have to do this, can you tell me what all I have to remove and anything else I will need to do to get ready for the blower. I also have the FEL for it, so I assume after I remove the FEL , the front portion is ready to accept the front hitch part for the blower? Any advice or things that you have ran into would help me. They are predicting a 6+ inch snow storm here in 4 days, so I want to be ready to go out and have fun with it! I ordered this tractor on Valentines day and when I got back home I told my wife that I bought her some JD for a Valentines present. She asked what it stood for and I said, "maybe Jewels and Diamonds" and then she said "You bought a tractor , didn't you"? But so far, she still loves me! Thanks!
