That 580 lbs doesn't sound right to me unless JD changed the requirements. If I remember right my 120R NSL FEL manual says 772 lbs of ballast required PLUS filled rear tires OR rear wheel weights.
The current manual is 580 with no mention of fluid or wheel weights.

Wonder why the change. Did anything change on the tractor or loader?
Not that I'm aware of. Same requirement for NSL and MSL too which is surprising.

The 3 point hitch has a stated maximum lift capacity, should be in the manual. I think it's around 800 lbs at the pins.
3-Point Hitch Lift Capacity—61 cm (24 in.) behind arms​
344kg (758 lb)​
3-Point Hitch Lift Capacity—at lift link ends​
534 kg (1177 lb)​

Mark, thanks for the reply! In layman's terms, does that mean the ballast box/contents should not exceed 758 pounds? Or is the limit 1177 pounds?

If I might ask, what do you use on your tractor for rear ballast and how much weight do you have for rear ballast when using the loader?
I would say 758 since the weight of the ballast box is behind the pins.

My box is filled with 480 lbs of cement bricks (plus the weight of the box which I think is around 80 lbs).I can hang some suitcase weights on the side of the ballast box if I need more.

I also have filled tires and 72 lb wheel weights.

I know this is an old thread but hey worth a shot. I bought a 1025R with 110 hours on it, now I do have a manual and I will get it out but....

I do not even know how to disengage the 4wd...
There's a handle on the right side of the seat. It may be down by the floorboard or up next to the seat (Deere changed levers but not sure when).
