Mounting 260 on 2017 JD1025R

I know this is ambiguous and subjective, but I found a 260a for $3k. I’d just have to buy the mounts ($1500 kit). Do you guys think it’s a good price or should I wait? I’m not in a rush for one, as of yet. I have a few months to play with before it is needed. I have a July 11, 2017 1025r which misses the second gen cutoff by like two days.

I ordered the full kit that includes the swivel seat and subframe mounts for my specific model tractor and to accept the 260 backhoe.

I installed the PB kit last week when I changed a coupler out. Very easy to do.

My biggest worry is getting 360ftlbs of torque on those few bolts but aside from that, I can’t imagine the install is THAT hard. Time consuming, sure, but aside from that, a few beers, some cursing, it’ll be fine.

I’ll remove the rear tires and go from there. If I have to remove the fenders and platform, that adds 30 minutes but an easy task. Aside from that, it’s a tractor. Quite basic.

I rented a torque wrench from Auto parts store when I had to torque something that tight.
