    1025r Time to remove snow blower and put on mower deck

    It's time to remove my 54" quick hitch blower and put on the 54" MMM. I've taken off the blower, hitch, lift kit and front PTO kit.

    Do you generally even remove the sensor harness wiring from the battery or can it be stowed on the machine? I don't like leaving the exposed plug dangling so I could cover it in plastic and tie it to the machine but that seems to be a jury rig at best.

    What do other 1025r (1023E, 1026) owners do?

    Thanks

    I can't really help with your question directly but I would caution you on zip-tieing a bag over the connector. If you get any moisture in the bag the connector will corrode faster than if left uncovered.

    One thing, make sure you put the little loops that look like an eye bolt with a square loop on the right way. If you put them in the wrong way things are just off enough to make the autoconnect process painful

    I have the sensor and wiring harness on my 1025r and 54" snowblower.
    Since I jumpered out the RIO feature, the sensor serves no purpose.
    I haven't removed the sensor or wiring harness.

    Dracunculus,
    Off topic here but would it be possible to have a more specific location in your profile other than USA? It really does help other members in their replies to your posts. I know I would appreciate it and believe me I need all the help I can get.

    Go to the dealer and ask them for the plug cover that they removed from the engine when they plugged the harness in for the sensor. They should have given it to you (it is basically the same plug just sealed up) as it gets put on the plug at the front. Only reason I know is I installed my front blower myself , did not have the dealer do it. It is plugged into the front plug right now. Never will use it again, as I jumped my RIO too. Best move I ever made. If they won't give it to you definitely seal it up.

    Sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but do you have a picture and/or part number for the plug cover? I've talked to my dealer about this, and they say none of the tractors they have came with any sort of plug cover. Apparently, they've talked with John Deere too, and they're having difficulty figuring this out. Can't imagine the connector would come exposed that the hall effect sensor plugs into.

    Thanks!

    This is what the dealer left in my tool box of my 1025R and I believe it to be the cover

    Thanks so much. I'll send it over to my dealer to see if it helps.
