    New 1025r deck arms question

    Just picked up a new 1025r yesterday. And I love it. I took the deck off today to do some loader and backhoe work. My question is, when I picked up the deck arms to get them out of the way from hanging low, I tried lowering them and they wouldn't drop back down. It has the hydro deck lift, the one that uses the bucket control to raise and lower. I can kinda pull it down by hand but it tries to spring back up. It was a model they had on the lot so the backhoe was added and I think the hydro deck lift was added as well.

    I assume you have the mower height knob in the install position?

    Is your 3pt all the way down? I know that sounds crazy but my dealer installed the hydraulic lift like you have along with the strap that connected the mower lift arms to the 3 point hitch.


    AND....congrats on the purchase and welcome to the forum.

    Looks like if you go to far to the right into regen, it will lift the deck back up. That's was part of the problem. I still had to pull it down by hand to get them to lower fully though. I did get the deck back on and cycled it up and down a few times. I guess when I take it off again, I will see if that did anything.

    Make sure the spring is installed next to the lift cylinder under the left floor board. It's a beefy spring, you won't miss it.

    Also when the tractor is new, the lift arms are fairly stiff. Give them a few hours of operation and they'll free up.

    Mine was bound up a little when it was new. I took it apart to clean, study, and adjust it so it would work right. When I had it apart I found several burrs that were causing some binding. I files the edges smooth and lubricated the shaft. It operated like butter after that.

    Thanks for the replies I will check all of that out tomorrow. I noticed one more thing while I was under there. There was a little hydro fluid leaking out of the 4wd shaft. Where it comes out of the transmission. I'll check the floor tomorrow to see how bad it is. Is it normal for it to leak a little or do you think it will need a replacement seal?

    There should be no leaks what so ever.

    When I checked it again today, there was no puddle on the ground. Just a little wet where the shaft comes out. I will keep an eye on it.
