    i know I am not the first to ask.... what have the pros on here come up for rearview

    Each week I look on here and see so many new ideas come up by actual owners and there awesome.

    So I was thinking what are some ideas to put a rearview mirror on my tractor 1025 with no cab so I can see behind me without having to turn behind?

    I am sure there are many ways so I am looking for one that is easy to do so any help is really appreciated.

    Thank you!

    I mounted one on the FEL, works pretty good, even with my lights on.

    that would do the job... except i use a snowblower....

    Maybe there is a way to make a rod that I can quick connect to the fel linkage and attach a mirror?

    The tricky part is seeing everything behind you and on both sides, which could take multiple mirrors or perhaps one of the curved mirrors mounted off the front of the ROPS in the up position.......That way you would be looking "up" to see all the mirror would permit to be seen. You would just need to have a way where it's not in your way getting on and off the tractor......

    One thing about the mirror idea to keep in mind is the vibration of the diesel in the tractors can make the rear images shaky........and it makes mounting them for decent visibility tricky..........

    You could use a back up camera and 12 volt monitor. The wide selection offered when I was searching had varying degrees of being "water proof" and "weather tight". I know the camera on my system is "weather proof" and sealed for exterior use. I don't think you would want to submerge it, but it certainly doesn't hurt it getting it wet. The monitor could be shielded from the elements to help if it's not real weather proof.

    Various monitors are made to be used on boats and in other "exposed" environments. I would bet if you looked through the wide range of offerings, you would find something which would do the trick.

    The issue I have with the mirrors is they provide just a limited view down the side of the tractor where the camera will provide whatever view you want. I think many of the cameras, like the one I chose, has a 170 degree lens for viewing. Several of the different Monitors can handle multiple cameras as well so you could have any view you want. If you wanted one for specifically hooking up the 3 point arms, that would be easy and then have another camera which shows the rear view behind your tractor.

    From a cost perspective, you can purchase a very nice quality wireless camera for about $225.........the entry level ones start much, much less in price, I have seen many in the $30 to $50 range, but you do get what you pay for................

    Couldn't see spending a lot of $ so just took a piece of 1" flat stock and drilled holes in ends and mounted a mirror on FEL support. WORKS GREAT!
    Can make the support as long as needed or lean out or in to each there own. Been using the for 7-8 years, Easy to replace and not costly, A PLUS Also leaves the place for greasing open and usable as well.

    What’s nice about them Tim, it looks like you could turn that bracket to get them to the outside. That’s the only thing I noticed about mounting to the FEL is they give you a great view of the rear lights. And to go along with SulleyBear ‘s post I have no vibration whatsoever mounted there but I am going to put a bracket on to get the mirror to the outside better.

    I bought these UTV mirrors on Amazon with the idea originally to use them on the top bar of the grille guard.

    The 1025 grille guard tubing is significantly smallerthan UTV frame tubes, so although I switched to smaller clamps, they were always vibrating loose, and were also hard to adjust properly since they were not in reach from the tractor seat.

    So I moved them to the loader frame. Sorry about the poor picture, but it's the only one I have available tonight.

    They are pretty steady, and are easy to adjust. Unfortunately when the loader is removed, the mirrors go with it. The other problem is that while getting on and off the tractor, particularly in my shed, I bump against them and they move. When roading the tractor, visibility of traffic coming up behind me is good. With the 9 mph top speed, runners and bicyclists also pass me. I can see them coming too.
