Okay I am very new to my 1025R (4.5 hours lol) and just finished mowing my lawn for the second Saturday in a row and it was great.

Last week when I got it I mowed my lawn for the first time but when I was mowing on the dash was a digital readout. I think it has to do with the pto speed but not sure.

On that Monday I went and asked my dealer about it and he said I was imagining it. I know what I saw and it did it again today around 1950 to 2000 when I had the mower pto engaged and rpm was at 3200.

Also do :greentractorride:I wait to bring the rpm up to 3200 and then engage the pto or engage the pto at a lower rpm?

This forum is so great and much easier to use then the manuals. (I tried reading them but there not a lot of help at times)

Always engage and disengage your PTO at idle. On the rare occasion your PTO powered implement stalls the engine upon engagement, raise the rpm as needed. :good2:

The digital readout does display what the RPM is of the PTO you have selected. 2100 on the front, 540 on the rear when the engine is running at the PTO symbol on the tach.

Have you read your owner's manual yet? It covers this and so much more. Very handy. :thumbup1gif:

Ditto on what dieselshadow said regarding engage speed (with a large tractor and a large implement you can turn a PTO shaft into a cruller!! - I did not, but I watched it happen :laugh:- UNH, Tufts Vet School, student labor...). Always good to bring that mass (mower blades, Post hole auger, baler, et. al.) up to speed gradually. Also if both shafts are active you will only see the speed of the fastest (mid) posted.

Northwood, NH? I remember it well - Spyglass Elm, the old library! I knew the Smart family at ColdComfort Farm (by the old Ridge Store). Still remember the fun runs up the Ridge in my student-issue Datsun in 10" of snow - oh wait, that wasnt fun!!:lol: So... knowing the weather up there (its unique!) you'll get snow plowing practice! by say, October?!

As Dieselshadow stated ,,oh you can learn so much reading the manual.

We've owned minivans since the 80's , removed the 2nd row seat or moved them to around inside the van. Had to get the manual out because I could not get the seat to release. Amazing the info you can find.

First, call the nearest Psychological Problem Hotline to your dealer and get that poor ******* some help! He and his following customers need it!

Re: Manual: Everything you need to know is in the manual all the time, no log on, no spicy ads. If you feel you don't want to know your machine front to back and only want to solve problems, at least look down the list in the manual called "Table Of Contents" in the front. All your questions here are right there in B+W including PTO RPM's etc.

In case you don't get to it in the book, ALWAYS throttle down to idle BEFORE disengaging PTO. This protects unloaded gears and driveshafts.

Amen, end of sermon.:laugh:

Enjoy!

AND, the biggest JD secret of all.... How much grease for mower spindles. Like prunes, "4 too many, 6 not enough?":laugh:

I know several ex-military and they all have one thing in common.... They're usually all fanatics for doing things by the book.

Just and FYI, here's a link to an on-line 1025r owners manual.

OMLVU25849


Spend some free time taking a look at it. Lots of easy to access info there.


Here's a link to their on-line manual search page...

Enjoy the tractor, and good luck!
