There was a change mid 2020 where new/different hardware was introduced for the mechanical lift for the 54 and 60D mower decks. I picked up a fresh 1025R with the 60D mower deck a couple of days go. Everything was in crates when loaded on my truck, so this post will serve both for during the initial installation as well as the overall setup and adjustments.

Here's the mower deck after removing the top and side of the crate:

781460


The mechanical lift kit introduced mid-202 is this one:

781461


It ships in a cardboard box, separate from the crated mower deck itself.

Here's a view of all the parts contained in the mechanical lift kit:

781462


The PTO portion comes fully assembled.

Here's the front drag link assembled and installed on the front of the mower deck. I started out with the catch hook set right in the middle of the range.

781463


A view of the front brackets installed on the frame. Note that the brackets installs on the INSIDE of the frame. I made the mistake of installing them on the outside initially.

781464


I'm still waiting on my height gauge to get here, at which point I'll be doing the proper side to side and front to back adjustments, but with the front drag link in the position above, the front of deck was slightly lower than the back.

I was pretty surprised that the deck and PTO engaged and latched the first time I drover over it! Also, without any further adjustments, I was able to select 4" mowing height with no issues:

781465


The cam has just a 1/16" gap or so at this setting:

781466


Both turnbuckles are still in the default position they came in out of the box:

781467


I was expecting to have to make all kinds of adjustments to get the PTO shaft to engage, but the pre-assembled PTO assembly appears to have been pre-set at the factory, or perhaps I just got very lucky.

Here's a view of the parts that make up the new mechanical lift system:

781468


Once I get the height gauge, I'll run through all the adjustments. I'm also waiting for the dealer to email me the installation manual for the BXX10229 kit. All I had to go by during the assembly was the parts diagram above.

Excellent work. My dealer made a mess of mine initially so it went back. They got it right and I can now disconnect/reconnect it and I get the full 4" of height. They also leveled it for me - so they say. I've got a gauge on the way to verify and make any future adjustments myself. Thanks for sharing the detailed info.

Has anyone trimmed this tab to allow a little more lift for the MMM? I can’t shorten my links to get more lift height because this tab is not quite touching the tractor frame and limits lift height.

Took about 2 months to get the real paper version of the tractor manual from my JRE location. Good look LOL
