    How to remove 1025r battery?

    So my tractor was not wanting to start after sitting overnight. It tried but not enough juice to get it going. So i am trying to remove the battery but man its tight in there with the oil cooler and headlights and my big hand i just cant get it up and out. Any tips?

    Someone showed the how to a while back...it may have been a 2 series.

    There were bolts down on the bottom outside battery area iirc.

    You removed those and the whole grill poped out or whatever.

    Otherwise the Headlight is in the way Right?


    May have been 2 sets of bolts .....It was a slick trick is all I recall.

    I don't have your tractor......I just recall reading about this trick for a 1 or 2 series iirc

    I think it is more than two screws to remove the grille assembly, but still simple enough. Don't remove the headlights---it is a Pandora's box once you start. There are springs behind them and some clips that like to strip/break. Don't ask me how I know.....

    Nevet taken the grill out - any advice/instruction are much appreciated. I also have the brush guard on it too which i am guessing will add even more work


    Seems silly to not just be able to yank the battery out for a quick replacement.....sigh

    Ok -figured it out

    here is the deal. Remove the drivers side headlight. Its bolts are slightly easier to get to. Then carefully lift it and try not to dice your hand on the oul cooler. Ask me how i know

    About all I remember is you needed a long long extension to reach to the bottom for those 2 or 4 bolts.
    Must be a couple others up higher...... It was a slick trick That I'd never seen posted before.

    A friend has a 1025 and I recall He pulled the headlight...Was not happy with the engineering in all that and the chinese bungee that holds it in ( I think)..I forget but theres a bungee somewhere from the factory it seems like.

    This is another example of how modern tractor designers sometimes don't have a clue. The battery on a tractor needs to be in the clear and easily accessible. It might be fine to bury it behind a trunk panel in a Lambo but on tractors we need easy access. Same with tire clearance... you shouldn't need to purchase expensive spacers just to use tire chains.

    Makes you wonder if the designers really understand how tractor are used. :-)

    I removed one of the headlights on mine when I had to replace it. Built an actual hold down with j bolts and a piece of 3/4" tubing.

    For whatever reason, this reminded me of a good friend who's family farms several thousand acres. He says anything less that 100hp is a lawn mower, not a tractor. LOL!

    I took one headlight out and reinstalled it without a hitch. Oh and yeah that oil cooler did a nice job of slicing and dicing my hand. If there ever is another time I am gonna hang something over that cooler.

    My problem was being able to keep a grip on the battery. Never will try it again without some sort of battery strap/lift.
