    I have searched but can't find it anywhere. I replaced one of the hydraulic lines on my 260b backhoe. How do I get all the air out of the lines to get the pistons moving again? I can get a little movement but I guess I don't understand enough about the flow through the manifold to be able to...

    How do you like the hydraulic thumb on the 2x0B series backhoes? Specifically: the JD sales people tell me the switch on the boom is "either or": either it routes all hydraulic fluid to the bucket, or to the thumb, but not to both simultaneously. However, the TTWT videos I have seen appear...

    I added worklights to my 260B. This is a write up on how I did it. I mounted the two worklights to the bracket that mounts the Hydraulic thumb valve in the deer kit. See pictures. I took the power and ground from both lights and twisted them together and put them in a butt connector. I then...

    Greetings: I just purchased a 1025r with a 260B backhoe attachment. The float function on the boom bypasses all the oil in the open center valve block rendering it useless. It is impossible to to move the stick or curl the bucket. Surely this cant be the design of the valve block. The 120r...

    I purchased a 2025r tractor backhoe and my dealer has had trouble getting a 260B for my 2025r he tells me he contacted John Deere and the backhoes short of some mounting brackets are the same for the 1025 and 2025 is that true? It would change my delivery date by a month and I really would like...

    Hello Everyone! Somehow I managed to get this purchase approved by the finance department and will soon be a proud owner of a new 1025R tractor. Delivery is expected after November 1st, which is killing me. I'm including my price paid on everything as a data point for all the forum lurkers out...
