Attaching 120R loader to John Deere 1025R tractor - Start the engine. Drive forward and center John Deere 1025R tractor between the loader masts. Continue forward aligning the loader masts with mounting frames. Pull forward enough to be able to connect hydraulic hoses. Engage the park brake or place the transmission in PARK. Relieve hydraulic pressure: Shut off the engine and return the key to the ON position for electronically operated control valves (tractor or loader with a third-function). Move the JD 120R loader controls (including the third-function control when necessary) in all possible positions several times making sure that the controls are returned back to the NEUTRAL position. Place the key in the OFF position. Route the hose bundle into the hose guide.The anticipated loader movement responds to the multi-function lever only if the hoses are connected correctly.

Match the color-coded cap with the same color-coded plug. Connect hydraulics JD 1025R tractor: Remove the protective cap from the hose and the plug from the coupler. Push back the collar on the female coupler and insert the male coupler. Connect the cap and plug together. Repeat for all the remaining hose connections. Start the engine. If necessary, continue to drive forward keeping pins on mounting frames in alignment with notches in the masts. Place the transmission in NEUTRAL. Retract lift cylinders. Masts lower onto mounting frames and parking stand raises up below the weight bracket. Use a combination of extending bucket cylinders and retracting lift cylinders until the loader masts move back and latches lock over mounting frame bushings.

Remove Ballast Box - Park machine on a hard, level surface. Engage the park brake or place the transmission in PARK. Disengage the PTO. Shut off engine and remove ignition key. 3-point hitch: Lower the ballast box to the ground. Remove quick-lock pins from hitch pins and install in the storage position on the tractor draft links. Remove the tractor draft links from ballast box pins. Remove the quick-lock pin from the center link. Position the tractor center link in the transport location. Reinstall the center link pin and hardware. Start the engine and drive the tractor away. Quick-hitch: Lower the ballast box so it is slightly off the ground. Engage the park brake and place the transmission in PARK. Raise both latch levers on the quick-hitch. Lower the ballast box to the ground. Continue lowering the quick-hitch until hooks clear ballast box pins. Start the engine and drive the tractor away.

Install 54D Mower - If equipped, remove the front weights before installing the 54" mower deck. Replace the weights after the mower deck is installed. Set the mower height control to the install position. Raise handle to release the lock on each gauge wheel. The mower rests fully on the ground. Ensure that the mower deck is sitting on firm, level ground. A smooth surface allows the mower to be pushed along by the tractor. Inflate tires to 20 PSI. Ensure the rear lock assembly is in the locked position. The lock assembly automatically unlocks as the machine engages the mower, and locks after full engagement. Lower the mower lift arms using the SCV or the rockshaft lever control. Shift the machine PTO selector to the rear PTO to allow the mid-PTO and driveshaft to turn freely and engage the mower gear case with minimal resistance.

Engage the tractor MFWD with the machine in low range. Drive the machine straight toward the rear of the mower while aligning the inside of the left front tire with the guide bar. Drive John Deere 1025R tractor onto the 54-inch mower deck with the inside of the left tire against the guide bar. Slowly drive the tractor forward until the mower begins to pull along ground for approximately 102 mm (4 inches) behind front wheels. If mower deck pulls forward early or appears to be caught in the lift system, stop the tractor, reverse slightly, and move forward again. If mower deck still does not properly attach, stop the tractor, lock the park brake, dismount the tractor, and determine the cause of the problem.

PTO coupler aligns with the gear box coupler. Dismount the tractor and ensure locks on both sides have dropped to the locked position. If necessary, pull the mower rearward to engage the lock and the coupler. On first installation, mower may not lock in position if front link is too short. Install the cotter pins in the locked position. Make sure the forward lift link is nested into the hangers per specification. Forward Lift Link Gap - 3 mm (0.125 in.). Start the engine and lift the mower to full height. Pull the height lock fully forward and place the pin in the nearest hole for transport or set the link to the desired height. Lock down all gage wheels by snapping the handles down and ensuring the lock pins are fully seated in the vertical rods.
