    1025r - TLB to 3pt

    Been lurking for a few months. I bought my 1025r about four months ago and now have about 25 hours on it. This is my first intro into the tractor world other than an old one my grandfather had that I used to sit on a lot. I took to it pretty well however since I used to drive a forklift.

    Mine wasn't a TLB from the factory, but the dealer set it up for me with the Power Beyond. I also have the 60" mmm and so far I'm happy with it. It's been on and off about 10-15 times without much difficulty.

    My question...I think I have everything from the dealer for the 3pt hitch. How hard is it and how longs does it take to put all the 3pt hitch stuff on. I have taken the backhoe off a couple of times and I have the dolly from BXpanded (nice). Oh, I have a quick-hitch too. I'm looking at getting a tiller (Tractor Supply) this spring to start a garden and possibly to turn some soil to plant grass seed.

    Any advice/tips...any parts I can leave on with the backhoe to make this easier in the future?

    Agreed ^^^. It doesn't take long at all to install the three point. Once you do it a few times, you will surely knock off a minute of time.

    I hooked mine up in about fifteen minutes first time and installed and adjusted the quick hitch. Now I leave the quick hitch attached to the three point hardware and just disconnect the tractor side and haul the whole thing aside when I take it off. Same back on, just leave it all together. I don't have a dolly for the backhoe so I crib underneath the bottom where it rotates with wood blocks when I take it off. Hydraulics will leak down with time so this will keep it up so that you have lots of hose to play with when you put it back on.

    For the first few times (if you don't use the "leave it assembled" method, mark the arms and links with tape and Sharpie notes as to where they hook up and which holes you used last time. Helped me the first few times though I'll be using the "Leave It Assembled Method" this Spring. I went to the dealer and took pictures of the 3pt assembly, I did a bunch of tractorin' in my days but no 3 pointing.

    3 pt to backhoe change

    You have a backhoe dolly so you have most of the changeover work figured out. Just do it on level flat ground. For the 3 pt, keep is assembled and lower it onto a pallet or platform so you don't have to lift it at all. Just release it from the large lower pins after removing the sway adjusting turnbuckles, then release the top link. Sometimes I release the top link first. That backhoe dolly is such a help it should come with the backhoe as standard equipment.

    To help with the 3 point you could take a furniture dolly and leave it assembled on there (if you have the floor space) and then just roll it to the tractor and hook it up with the quick hitch attached.

    Do you have a picture of how you store your 3 point attached to the quick hitch on a furniture dolly?
    Do you use the dolly to support while removing the 3 point arms from the tractor and then just allow everything to lay on the dolly?

    I don't have a photo but I just have a $12 wooden dolly with a piece of plywood on it and the plywood is raised slightly on some 2x4 scraps I had. That elevates it so that when it is at the rear of the tractor it is just above the lowest setting for the 3 point. Then I hook up the lower arms and finally the top link.

    I don't have any sort of jig to hold the iMatch in place - I just hold it so it doesn't fall over when I roll it over and hook it up. Otherwise I lay it down on the dolly for storage because it goes under a bench.

    Using Heavy Hitch's cart and weight rack system makes the removal/installation of the 3-point (including I-match) very simple. Please see this post for pictures and details.
