Brand new 1025R tractor with factory installed 120R loader and 260B backhoe is $21,900. At least that's what I paid 2 weeks ago.

what do you plan to do on the revolving seat...those are about $600? Also you'll need the power beyond and all the hoses that goes with it?

If he can get the BLV10835 sub-frame kit, it should come with the seat swivel. The power beyond doesn't and would have to be gotten separately if he doesn't already have it.

I noticed on my unit the subframe is tied into the roll bar....was thinking of removing the roll bar since using the backhoe but it looked like an almost impossibility. The poster is into an ambitious project, seems like one would need to strip down the who rear of the tractor. I'm anxious to see how he comes out and maybe he'll advise time and cost factors in doing this. Would really be interested in knowing.

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.

If you can send me pics of your subframe from all angles that helps me a lot! I don’t expect a ton from JD directions. I assume you have the 260 and not the 260B?

Here are some pics...I've torn a lot of tractors apart....If I we attempting your procedure....I'd remove all the exterior...wheels, fenders, floor boards, 3 point....that frame is not going to go one but one way....you may need longer bolts...but maybe you got them with the kit....did you get the power beyond? With all the above off you should be able to see what you;re doing....I'll help anyway I can....

Looks like the roll bar lower is sandwiched in between the backhoe support and the frame....Kinda hard to see but one should be able to with wheel and housings off....

Thanks for the photos. Hopefully the frame arrives by the weekend. Depends how quickly green parts store ships something this large.

Did it mount between the loader mounts and the frame? As in, do I need to remove the loader mounts first? Would love to start prepping the tractor in advance.

Here's the instructions for installing the sub-frame. Look it over and familiarize yourself with it and your tractor. It'll make sense when you do. The installation is a piece of cake, with the exception of removing and reinstalling the draft pin nuts to 357 lbs-ft. A piece of pipe to extend a breaker bar handle usually works well to remove them, and even tighten them if you want to guess at the torque. Otherwise a torque multiplier will be needed, as most torque wrenches don't go that high. Also, pay attention in the instructions as to whether they are saying to torque something in lb-ft or lb-in.

Edit: The instructions do not come with the kit.

The engineer makes the directions go immediately over your head. I hope the poster can get all the equipment he needs...I know that seat is a bear to buy...I'm a veteran tractor enthusiast and I'm kinda scratching my head....
