    59'' front mount Blower, has anyone ever mounted one on a 1025r

    I'm planning on mounting a 59'' John deere forward mount snow blower, on my 1025r. I'm told that the 1025r only fits a 47'', or 54'', but I believe that I can do some fabricating, and welding, she should work out. There is a little difference between the mount, and tractor frame, the frame being 13 1/2'' wide, (id) and the mount being only 9 1/2'' wide (od) I'm wondering if anyone here has ever performed this task, on the site, any info would be greatly appreciated, Thank you one and all, simers

    I think the same question has been asked before, but I don't know that anybody has, or at least shared it here. Go ahead, be the trailblazer....and be sure to document it and take lots of pics. Oh, and of course post them here

    I've never seen or heard of it being done-saw one on an older 4100 or 4110 like mine-but never a newer 1 or 2 series.

    Okay, guess I'll p/u some batteries for the camera, I figure two 8" pieces of 2" square tubing, with a 3/16 wall, drilled for longer bolts, should fill the gap between the frame and the blower mount. I believe it's all riding on the drive shaft being accommodating, I've got strep throat at the moment, but I'm planning on hitting the shop this morning, the walls are closing in on me...lol...

    Just curious as to why? Did you already have a 59" from a previous tractor or did you score a sweet deal on a used one? Brand new the 59" is about 1500 bucks more than a 54".

    That's an awful wide blower for a 1 series but I'm sure it can be done. Plan on needing loaded tires, rear weight (weight box) and possibly chains for traction. 59SB housing can load a lot of snow. May be a lot of work for your rig.

    Not that much more weight, a few more square feet, I'm going to leave my back hoe on for the weight offset, and yes....I did get a very good deal on the 59SB, used, but slightly. Currently I've contracted strep throat, so I'm facing a slight delay in my project, but bear with me....

    It's hard to say without seeing what you have with the 59" blower, but I'd have to think this would require some serious fabricating and problem-solving. Mounting a 54" blower requires the mid shaft kit, and the front hydraulic lift kit, it all looks very model specific to me.

    I'm not saying it couldn't be done...but I'd strongly consider the level of difficulty. I'm sure there are plenty of guys here who'd provide pictures if it would help.

    You're most likely going to have to start with a 1 Series Front Quick Hitch with tractor attaching parts as well as the 2000 RPM PTO kit. Long, mid driveshaft and then a custom implement drive / short, front driveshaft.

    Not sure your Mid PTO turns in the correct rotation to be compatible.
    The gear box on the 59" reverses the input to output rotation.
    The smaller 54" Blower that is compatible with your tractor
    is a chain drive which does not change the input to output rotation. I've had a 54" on my previous X595.
    Now I have a 59" on my 3320 and the 59" is much heavier built.
    Mind you the 54" had better shear bolt protection for the augers and impeller.
