Does anyone know where to cut off the bagger chute on a 1025r?? My dealer doesn't know, I was wondering if anyone here knew for sure. Otherwise I will just measure and cut it myself.

Ask Randy Lang, he is a vendor here on GTT and the most knowledgeable on these systems.

The white piece of paper is showing the insert distance so it's not rear critical I guess?

Hey Randog,

I just wanted to reply real quick to your post. Please forgive me if I am assuming something incorrect, but don't cut the back of your chute if thats what your measurements are showing. The rear should never be cut as that curve is what distributes grass evenly into the bags. The cut lines people refer to are on the other end of the chute. There are lines labled A,B,C,D,E. The model of tractor is what determines where the chute is to be cut. That same chute is used on everything from an X500 to a 2 Family Compacy Utility.

I can help with cut advice if you let me know what tractor your are installing it on and what mounting system your are using for the hopper, whether it be the JD Draw Bar mount our my MCS I-Match Mount.

Thanks Randy.
This is a used system I picked up off a 2013 1025R so I didn't cut anything. Didn't realize the other end gets cut off.
This is the unit that mounts to the frame with 3 large bolts and holds the 3 bags.
Mine appears it was cut off at the "D" (see picture) Was on a 60" deck so I figured it would bolt up to my deck with no issues.

Yep, you should be just fine at cut line D for the draw bar mount on a 1 Series. That is shere the dealers cut them. If you ever get tired of dealing with that mounting system, look me up. It is a real pain if you use an I-Match for anything of your other rear implements.

Enjoy your tractor!

The dealer boys cut the chutes at D for the 1 Series with the draw bar mount. If your looking at my system for mounting the hopper, (now or sometime in the future,) you need to leave it at B or you will be shoping for a new chute!

Good info Randy. Surprised meyer1025r hasn't chimed in.

Wish I had seen your system before I picked up the used powerflow. May have re-thought that purchase.

The drawbar type mount is no lightweight date, and when installed you can't use the 3 point or stick the backhoe on for a quick job. And, like you stated, I will need a new chute to get the reach required to convert now. (will be looking for a used A or B cut chute)

I didn't go with the I-match due to the backhoe being my loader ballast. I may just move the powerflow system to the old 445 and relegate it to spring and fall leaf duty.

Thanks for all the help guys, looks like I have to make a decision on which way I want to go, stick with the draw bar mount or with the i-match.
