    Drive over 54D MMM without taking of H120 loader?

    I swear I read on one of these threads about people taking their drive over deck on/off with out taking their loader off. Well I tried it today and found out the loader catches on the gear box of the MMM in my 1025r.

    You see it done on Youtube and I have just done it but I've never seen it done with a AutoConnect. On your photos, that AutoConnect unit sticks up there a good bit higher then any other part of the deck. I don't have the AutoConnect and I'm just guessing that might be your issue.

    Yeah I was wondering if it was the auto connect. After I saw how far it sticks up.

    Might be able ramp it up a few inches on the deck ramps with a couple of 2x6's or something just to clear the gear.

    I didn't even have the new loader stand with v in it and had this issue. They put the new one on, like you had, and said it works but still bumps it. Is there enough play on the loader stand to hold it up a bit while driving on?

    I don't think there is really any play, plus I'm not sure how I would hold it up.

    The Auto-Connect has no impact on the gearbox height. It's the same regardless if you have A/C. The A/C consists of a gearbox stub shaft adapter and the driveshaft mechanism/bearing assembly on the lift arms on the tractor.

    Idk but mine still had a PIP on the loader stand hitting like this. Maybe call your dealer and see if they'll fix it free. The PIP is almost expired though so I'd hurry.

    Is this only a problem with the 54mmm but also with the 60mmm. I have done this in past with the 60mmm without a problem. Was I just lucky?

    Not sure what is happening on yours. I have a 1025 with a 54" MMM A/C. I've only had the loader frame off a couple times, I drop the bucket leaving the loader frame on, drive over the MMM A/C connect and mow , when I get done mowing I remove the MMM A/C and have not had any issues with it hitting the loader frame. I have the same V front frame as you showin your pics. Don't know what to say to help.
