    54" Snowblower Quick-Hitch Install help needed

    I had my 54" snowblower delivered a few weeks ago and was going to install it today when I realized I had all kinds of brackets and bolts to mount to the front bumper of my 1025R but no instructions on how and exactly where to mount them. I've done my searching here but to no avail.

    Can someone please provide me with the instruction sheet(s) for the installation of the brackets that mount directly to the front bumper? I just need to know what size bolts go where and any torque specs (if necessary).

    Thank you in advance.

    Hopefully another 1-series owner can help you but be sure to contact your dealer on Monday and request the manual and instructions that came with your 1-series quick hitch kit and snow blower. You are entitled to that documentation.

    If you have a front hood guard and mower brackets, you will need longer bolts. The quick attach goes on the inside of the front frame. I usually use the bolts that came with hood guard for the 4 back holes and get longer bolts for the four front holes. The skinny bracket goes in the front using the two smaller bolts. Let me know if you have any issues with the install.

    I'm not 100% certain of which piece you are working with. There is the front attachment support kit that holds the front of the mower as well as the quick hitch (LVU23138), The Front quick hitch and hydraulic lift kit (LVU23139) and the Front PTO kit (LVU27270) that I had to assemble for my snowblower as I received it in the crate. The front attachment support kit was already installed because of the mower.

    I scanned in my manuals (English only) as I needed to do that anyway. Please ignore the grease.

    The first two you posted I did not receive with my parts and should give me all I need for the install. The third one did come with the blower. Thank you very much!

    I do have the front hood guard but no mower mounts. Thanks!

    It turns out that they sent along more parts than is shown in the instructions you guys provided and now I have more questions. I'm going to contact the dealer too for help, but any more help would be appreciated.

    Below is a picture of what I have. I don't know what the shims (I think) are for or where they go. I have no idea what that long bracket is for. And they gave me two sets of what appear to be hydraulic hose holder brackets round and square (#3 and #4). Not exactly sure which ones go where.

    The long bracket is the 1-series mount for the remote spout control. I assume you purchased that as well?

    Not sure about the square hose guides, never saw those before. Use whichever round hose guides that you need to properly support the hoses and keep them away from the front tires. It never hurts to use an extra one if you need it.

    My 2-series didn't come with enough so I purchased extras and mounted them where I saw fit to keep the hoses out of harms way.

    There's a bar that attaches with 2 bolts to the front of the tractor frame...... I don't know if that's a standard item, or if it's part of the front quick hitch assembly...

    The 2 brackets in your picture go inside the frame rails. This is a dark pic, but you might get the idea...

    I think your parts kit came with a lot of extra parts, they might not all be used on your tractor and some of the parts might be for other model tractors...

    I'm pretty sure someone will post the torque specs, but they're also listed in the tractor owners manual by bolt size, but not really by each specific use.

    As far as which bolts go where... It's going to be a bit of a puzzle. If they fill the hole (don't used a skinny bolt in a large hole) and are long enough, they're probably in the right place.

    Thanks. Yes I did also get the manual spout control but have since purchased an electric actuator kit from a gentleman who makes them for less than $200. As you said, if needed I can use the extra hose holders as needed too.

    Thanks!
