    GRRR - tore up the lawn again with my 1025R - brake?

    I put a nice deep circular shaped rut in my lawn today with the 1025R. I hate that. I mean, I really hate it.

    One thing I have started to notice (interestingly enough by watching surveillance video) is that I appear to be riding the brakes on the tractor when I drive it. It makes me curious - when you hit the brake does it automatically lock the differential? I read something about setting the parking brake doing that, but does it do it when you touch it lightly? If so, this, and my propensity to ride the brake could explain a lot of the circular ruts in my lawn.

    Yeah - I'm trying to train myself out of riding the brake anyway, but just curious.....

    I'm not sure how far you have to press the pedal to engage the diff lock, but yes, if you are riding around with your foot on the brake you may unintentionally be applying the diff lock.

    When you depress the brake pedal the differential will lock before the brakes are actually applied in order to apply even braking to both tires. If you are riding the brake, you are locking the differential.

    I didnít even realize my tractor had brakes

    Iíve only had to use the brakes to put on the parking brake. How sloped and hilly is your land to ride the brake?

    Yea, me too.......

    I can't even imagine it would be comfortable to ride around with your foot on the brake pedal, unless the OP either has incredible flexibility or doesn't have a 36" inseam......For me, it's a specific movement to get my foot that high......

    I don't think I have ever used the brakes to actually stop the tractor. Or the tractor before this one (in 23 years.....)

    I wonder if perhaps the OP is dragging his heel on the Diff lock pedal, that would certainly be easier and make more sense.......

    Yeah - i'm riding the brake pedal -not sure how that habit started, but it's time to fix it. i do have some places where I mow the grass next to a very deep creek and pond - it could be that I'm overly paranoid about going into the drink. I have now identified the problem - should be an easy fix. Thanks for the answers on the diff lock - it explains a lot.

    Is there No way to split the brakes on those tractors??

    Seems like someone...hmm...would find a way and offer this solution to you folks with the Doughnut issue.

    I've never looked over that area of the 1 series...odds are its all internal but perhaps not.

    was a thread a few weeks ago about split brakes but I think it was in the GT section....I forget..but someone added a pedal.

    Except for using the parking brake , I've pressed my brake pedal maybe 5 times in the past 15-20 yrs... I mow down a steep bank also toward a creek.
    I mow in 4x4 and L not H ,,,even mowing in h on the rest of my yard no need to use the brake pedal./

    I just finished mowing for over 4 hr on steep yards , backing down hills sides , going up hill sides using a x738 ..Except to set brake to get off tractor and open a gate never touched the brake pedal..

    If not using L Start mowing your banks in L and 4x4 ...

    I got quite a bit of use out of the brake last weekend. When you want it to stay where it is instead or rolling back 2" or so, just press the brake. Loader and fork work type of stuff.
    Mine sounded sort of squeaky, probably from lack of use normally.

    However, my foot is nowhere near the brake if I'm not planning on using it.
