of course the first day the lawn is dry enough now I cant hook up my hyd line..

Never had this issue in two years so hoping someone out there might have an idea.

I just removed my loader like normal no issues but when I went to hook up the black hyd line that allows me to lift the mower it wont snap in. After looking over everything I cant get it to snap in like it normally does.

I did look at the ones that are on the loader and found the center pin or nipple seems moveable on them but not on the line from my mower. I am thinking this is the issue as I cannot get it move at all. Is this the right direction and if so what is a safe way to maybe get the nipple moving? Thinking maybe pressure we left in the line when I discounted but I did move the handle all around before I took the lines off.

Hoping someone on here can tell me how to fix it as sure want to mow my lawn and play with my tractor.

thank you again everyone! 2 years old 1025r and no problems at all until now...…..(two weeks before the bumber to bumber expires...)

Common issue, it's pressure in the line. Place a rag over it and try to press it against the frame somewhere to bleed some pressure. If that won't work simply get two wrenches to loosen the fitting and let a bit of fluid out.

This site and people are awesome!

Kenny your suggestion worked like a charm. The secret was using the rag so I could push it against frame. Before I was trying but it was oily and I couldn't get the pressure needed.

Put the rag on it and pressed and pisssst. the sound made me smile.

My first mow done so thank you very much. (just have to remember the height next year as I forgot and the first couple of passes I hit dirt ops)


Thanks again for taking time and making my weekend complete. :usa
