    Something From Under the Seat of 1025R FILB

    3 hours on the new 1025R, and I found the first broken item. This little "adjuster" of sort was keeping my seat from rotating around to the BH position. I unscrewed the end still attached under the seat, but couldn't really tell where the other end was supposed to have lived prior to the bolt shearing off. Anyone know what this is and where it goes?

    The seat seemed to function fine without it, so I'm wondering if I really need it.

    Warranty item.

    I had the same thing break on mine. It's what lifts the seat up when you rotate it and keeps it from raising when it's in the forward position. The only way you can get that part is to buy a $400 assembly, but my dealer warranted it for me at 150 hours. When new, I noticed it was loose, so I tightened it. Even though I had only rotated the seat a couple of times to use the bh, it somehow broke. Because I have an auto repair shop and an infinite amount of tools available to me, they just handed the assembly to me and let me make the exchange myself, so I could do it without having to leave it with them. There's only about 6 bolts that hold everything together, but don't loose any! The ones that attach the assembly to the seat itself are low profile. If you use a regular metric bolt, it'll interfere with the rotating of the seat.

    Thanks Jon!

    I did seem to me that the seat raised much easier, I guess this little bugger was bad from the factory. I'll get on the horn with my dealer on Monday morning to have them get me a new one. I am surely guessing it is under warranty since I just took delivery last Friday. Heck, I think I only spun the seat about half a dozen times so far...

    Same failure on my 1026TLB. Seems the seat business is still the same from the 26's to the 25's...? I learned how to work the seat better without it and it won't get fixed until the machine goes dealer for service.

    I believe somewhere on this site a while back there was a mention of a factory "repair" number which was supposed to fix this, but I haven't seen it mentioned lately...

    The problem for the JD design "team" was the difference in operating height between FEL and BH, a whopping couple of inches. Darn freshman engineer guys assigned to this project spilled ink all over the blueprints.

    Had the same part break on mine 2x in the year that i have owned the tractor. The dealer replaced the part under warranty but had a hard time finding the part. Thanks to GTT I found the right part # for them. The link below will show you the seat diagram and part list.

    This thread was a great read. It seems that I am having the very same experience as others here, and my seat actually lifts and spins better now than it did before this little strut broke. Now I'm wondering if I really want to replace it.

    I have also had the same part break. I took it in to my dealer and the shop manager knew exactly what it was, he'd seen many beak. I got a new one under warranty. If you bring it in to the dealer, they send back all of the broken parts to JD. Maybe there will be a beefier replacement in the near future?

    Well, wouldn't you know it. The third time I used my new (2nd) seat mechanism and the rod is laying under there, broken again! I think I'm going to redesign a new one using 3/8" threaded rod and a couple of garden tractor tie rod ends. This is ridiculous. In the words of a former co-worker, "It's not rocket surgery!".

    While I encourage good mods that improve the tractor, I would take the second broken rod in to your dealer so they can report it under warranty.


    I could've sworn there was an improved part for this.....
