    Front weight bracket for 1025r

    Question for 1025/6 owners. Does the front attaching support kit for the front quick hitch have to be removed in order to attach the MMM? Looking at either the John Deere front weight bracket or the Heavy Hitch one. Looks like the Heavy Hitch one comes off by just pulling a pin. The Deere one looks to require a couple wrenches. I know the Deere bracket has to be removed to use the FEL, unless you modify it a little. Thanks in advance.

    The Deere front weight bracket can stay on with the MMM installed, it does not interfere.

    The Q hitch can't stay on. The parts that are bolted to the tractor stay my 1026R all the time. No tools are needed to take the front hitch on & off.

    So the two small hooks that are part of the front attaching support kit stay on the tractor? That's what I wanted to know. Thanks.

    We now have the complete kit if you don't have a quick hitch for the front. It includes the two hanger brackets that go up inside the frame, nuts and bolts and the securing rod along with the weight bracket itself. All for $199 + shipping.

    I "re-purposed" the weights and bracket from a Mitsubishi built Satoh Bull. I mocked them up and will remove them for paint as I get time. I plan to paint the bracket black and the weights John Deere yellow. I'm not much of a fabricator, but I must say that I hit the clearances dead on. I need the front weight for mowing without the loader attached. Sometimes I used a rotary cutter and sometimes I mow a hillside, sideways, and the extra center of gravity should reduce some of the well-known "pucker factor" that comes along with it.

    You may also notice the abundance of stainless hose clamps I have installed to help protect the aluminum lines that traverse the loader's cross brace. At .3 hours, while I was test driving my 1025, a branch came up under the bucket and bent all of the lines that hide under the shield/cover. The cover is only held in place by a couple of heavy-duty, plastic wire-ties from the factory.
