Haha. So this is the second nut I have found lying around my yard ... The first one was found right by the tractor. They are brand new and match those on the tractor. Upon a quick inspection.. I cannot see where they fell from. Mind you this 1025 is only 3 months old. Anyone ever have a new 1025 drop nuts randomly and have any idea where they could have come from?
P.s. Pretty sure the jokes will be flying here but hopefully someone has some serious insite.

More likely 13mm socket size than 1/2" and M10 bolt size rather than 3/8". Metric fasteners now.

I would determine the P/N. Then go to JD parts web site and do a P/N search for a model 1025R. That would show ever place that nut is used on your tractor. Then you would have places to check for missing nuts.

It is also possible the assembler dropped the nuts and just grabbed more rather than hunt for the dropped ones and they finally fell off.

This is actually a very good clue. All the nuts usually have a white paint pen mark on them that is put on when the machine is built (I *Think* it indicates that the nut/bolt was torqued to spec).

So if your's don't have the white mark, they are from something that was dealer installed or just excess bits that someone dropped or set down and forgot about during assembly.

This was one of my thoughts as well. That they are extras the dealer dropped. Neither of them have any marks or paint on them.

The nuts don't appear to have been touched by any wrench so as stated they may have just finally fallen off of a support or something,, But I would still scour that machine just to make sure... Better safe than sorry.. :hi:

You may check and see if you have a Kubota owner nearby that is GREEN with envy of your new machine and they fell out of their ears as they were driving by shaking their head. :laugh:

Other than that I think its a safe assumption that these are extras, I dont see any type of witness marks from a wrench / socket / or marring of the lock on the nuts. :bigthumb:

Do you have a mower on? Apparently the level adjuster bolts on x700 are not holding position on some tractors

Im leaning towards them being dropped extras. I searched the machine again last night and cant find anywehere they would go. Air cleaner all tight and bolted, mower deck is on and lower/raise mechanism is more like hangers on hooks then any bolting. Much like the hangers on my old LX176.

Rear fenders are tight as can be. Il have to take the mower deck off sometime this weekend and look up her underside to see if i see anything.
