    For 1025R guys with Auto-Disconnect deck and front snow blower

    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!

    As far as I know, you are correct on having to remove the auto connect from the mower deck before connecting your front blower.

    Best picture I have right now of the auto connect. At most would be the 6 bolts on each side, but there might be an easy way. ( I don't have a blower)

    When I saw the post saying that it had to be removed, some JD guy replied and said something about also removing the mower lift arms, but I couldn't figure out why those would have to be removed, but I havn't seen it yet, so that will explain a lot.

    Yep, that has to come off to put the PTO shaft on for the blower. Not a big deal pull 4 pins to remove it. No tools needed, doesn't take long to do.

    I have the 54 inch blower and the auto connect deck. You need to remove the auto connect assembly before attaching the blower. That takes about 2 minutes....once you understand how it attaches/detaches.
    My dealer showed me how to attach/detach all my attachments when my tractor was delivered. Hopefully your dealer will too. Good luck with your new tractor!
