Hello, just got a 1025r a week or two ago. I have been putting it to use and took the mower off today so I could get some clearance because I needed to move some dirt with the loader. Well, I ended bending a part on the mower deck trying to move it while it was off the tractor because I was having a hard time getting it to hook back up. Does anyone have a diagram with part numbers so I can order the part I need? Anyone know a good place to buy john deere parts online? Anyone have tips how to get the deck back on easier? Thanks!

I just wanted to say, "welcome from Texas." Sorry to hear about that. The 1025 and 60d are an amazing combination. I don't have the parts diagram but a good place to order online is a vendor on this website. Green Farm Parts

As you're pulling onto the deck, put the left front tire almost against the wire that runs front/back on the LHS of the deck. This should like you up pretty good. As you're pulling forward over the deck, lean to the left and look towards the front of the tractor at the ground. You should be able to see the hanger that the deck grabs onto at the front. You should be able to drive that bracket right into the front deck hangar and attach and see it the whole time (not blind). I've put mine on several times now and this works like a charm.

If the part is just bent, can you straighten it? Cheaper than buying a new one.

It's bowed in such a way it would be difficult to get it perfectly straight...it was my fault..I was trying to get the deck to hook up and pushed it forward onto uneven terrain...So I pulled it back to a flatter area with the tractor and straps but that part got hooked on the strap I was using and bent it so it much it won't lock anymore...I will pay the $14 stupid tax to get a new one

I ended up picking the deck up with the FEL and moving it into the garage until the part comes in tomorrow. ( I was very careful to make sure the straps weren't catching on anything sensitive)

Another problem I was having was trying to get the shafts to mate up automatically...I ended up having to prop the tractor end up some so it would mesh up...

I also had to replace that part. Mine was not only bent, but one of the weldments was twisted off when I managed to get the deck stuck at a 45º angle under the tractor... I chalked it up to a poorly (dealer) set up deck and poor operator concentration.:laugh:
