If you can make your own bracket, then the one for the 2x20 series should work just fine-the mounting bracket should be the only part that is machine specific. Of course you can go the electric acuator route also.
I have the cable on my 1026r/blower. It works good. I have had it since mid sept ? Need to have your dealer try again. Its likely the same cable that the 2xxx tractors use.I have a 1026 with the 54" blower. Dealer tells me they (Deere) dont have the 1026/54" cable thingy for my tractor yet.
Does anyone have a different story? I blow snow by the house (windows) and need to lower it, then raise it to get it over driveway.
I've seen one fabbed from a different tractor.......I would prefer the one for my 1026.
Thanks CP, but only if he has a loader. :good2:BTW RandyM's bracket that he fabbed is sweet, you should check it out.
I believe the 2305 bracket mounts to the platform foot rest, as does the other 2000 series machines. See my link in previous post.Yea whats the deal on the bracket? I have been told the Deere one bolts to the hood. I wouldnt like that.
I just put the cable on my 2305 blower and if I had it to do over again I think I would go electric.
I was referring to the correct mounting for the 1026. Looking at your link and the other picture posted they look different. One picture has a green part in front of pedals and other one doesnt. Is one a 1023 and one a 1026?I believe the 2305 bracket mounts to the platform foot rest, as does the other 2000 series machines. See my link in previous post.
I think we are starting to confuse machines. I was completely confused you were talking about two different models there. You have to take things a little slower for the old man. :mocking: You are correct they are different. My set up is for my 2520 and it attaches to the footrest on the platform.I was referring to the correct mounting for the 1026. Looking at your link and the other picture posted they look different. One picture has a green part in front of pedals and other one doesnt. Is one a 1023 and one a 1026?
Yes, again different, but the basic concept is the same.The 2305 actually mounts using two bolts to where the plastic cowl below dash bolts to metal in front of it. They use a bracket, spacers and longer bolts.
You can certainly be proud of that design and craftsmanship. :good2: It turned out very well, way batter than the Deere design. Thanks for the pic.I made a bracket for my 2305 that bolts in the same spot as the OEM one. I just went to a little more work making it fit and really did not need spacers. See picture.
The bracket is a deere part. I didnt know the 54" blower came with out the cable setup. This is how my dealer set it up. I did add the eye bolt to keep the cable off the tire.Is that a bracket from Deere or did you fab your own?
It works great but to take the blower on and off you have to unbolt the cable setup and coil it up. We have had little snow this year so I plan on removing the blower whenever I can. It's just one more thing that I have to deal with and it now requires a wrench.Rrmccabe, why do you not like the cabe setup on 2305 with 54 blower?
I have it on mine and I think it works great, and is easy to install.
You hit the nail on the head, you have a really, really good dealer. Rather than make you wait for Deere to come out with a bracket they found one that worked and now have a satisfied costumer.Am I missing something here? I posted pics of my 1026r / 54" blower with the bracket for the shoot deflector. If Deere dosent make this, how is that I have one on my 1026r ? Try another dealer, or call Reiesterer & Schnell 920 863 2181 and ask them for the part number they use.
