    New Member, New 1025r Owner

    Good morning everyone. I have been lurking and reading the wealth of information here about the JD 1025r while waiting on delivery of my new machine.

    I took possession last night of my new 2014, 1025r. It is a sweet machine. I was very impressed with how quiet the mower is when engaged compared to a lawn tractor. At any rate, that leads me to my first question. The manual states in bold to not exceed a pto (mid or rear) rpm of 540 yet states further down on the same page that an engine rpm of 3200 results in a mid pto being 2100 and a rear pto of 540. I'm confused. If I hit 540 at the rear I will exceed the mid maximum. I must be interpreting it wrong.

    My other question is the mower height knob. I read the adjustment sticky but I thought I read the knob could rotate either way. I can only rotate clockwise (from sitting position). I believe I have manual lift so I set the height knob and then lower the pto with the rockshaft. I have it set to mid pto only. Should only the mid pto actuate or should the rear raise and lower too.

    Sorry for the rudimentary questions

    Also, I know a lot of guys are interested in pricing to track what a good deal is.

    My deal:

    2014, 1025r filb, h120 loader, 54" mmm with auto connect, r4 tires loaded, delivery and sales tax (just over $1,000.00) included for $20,571.00 with 0% for 60 and including the implement rebate.

    Welcome to GTT Skins

    IMPORTANT: Avoid Damage! Use rear mounted equipment rated for 540 rpm. Do not operate mid or rear PTO over 540 RPM mark on tachometer.

    Your mid PTO is designed to operate close to 2100 rpm, the rear is 540. As Gizmo said, make sure you're operating with the tach needle on the PTO mark and you're all set.

    The PTO you have selected will not affect the three point hitch arms. If you have mechanical deck lift, it will use the three point arms to raise and lower the deck so they have to move in order for the deck to lift.

    Thank you for the quick replies.

    Another small question. I know Ken is a mod here but on his website he states hooks will be announced here when in stock. I looked in his vendor sub forum and I don't see an announcement. Does anyone know if they are in stock? Thanks!

    Thanks for the link. That was the sub forum I was referring to. Bummer. Guess I have to find an alternative.

    Welcome from New York.

    Just a note, Ken's products are well made and very popular, hence the occasional shortage. I'm going to buy hooks and clevis mounts, and everytime I'm ready, Ken comes out with an improvement. Now I'm waiting for the zinc chromate plated clevis mounts.

    I'd just hang in there until Ken gets his stuff available again. That's what I'm doing.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Just verified with Kenny, he has loads of bolt on hooks in stock. You should be all set.
