What Are the Capabilities of the John Deere 1025R Tractor?
Similar to many other pieces of John Deere equipment, the 1025R sub-compact utility tractor is designed to take on a variety of tasks with ease. In order to get the most out of this machine, operators can choose from a wide variety of attachments, from tire chains to hood guards.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these offerings from John Deere:
The John Deere 1025R supports a couple of different hitches that allow the tractor to tow several implements – these include the iMatch Quick Hitch bushings and iMatch Quick Hitch Category 1 hitch.
Operators have the choice of several weights to use alongside their tractor, including the 50 lb. cast iron wheel weight, 50 lb. wheel weight (rear plastic), and 72 lb. cast iron starter wheel weight. Additionally, Deere also offers bracket extension kits and mounting hardware for all of these weights.
For added protection, operators may want to consider either a hood guard, either standard or deluxe, to wrap around the hood of their 1025R tractor for maximum coverage.
Wheels and Tires
With the option of both turf and industrial tires for their tractor, operators can manage any type of work with ease, no matter what type of terrain they may be traveling across. Turf tires are designed to ensure the tractor’s weight is spread over a large area for more flotation. On the other hand, industrial tires are designed to offer more traction while minimizing turf damage.
When it comes to hydraulics on the John Deere 1025R, operators have multiple choices. Firstly, the power-beyond kit features rear-mounted hydraulic couplers. Next, the rear-hydraulic kit routes the duel mid-selective-control-valves (SCVs) to the rear of the tractor. Last but not least, the third selective-control-valve might just be the choice for those who do not want a handle that gets in the way while seated – this is because its couplers are mounted in the rear.
The John Deere 1025R supports several light kits that can provide illumination, from before sunrise to after sundown. These include the auxiliary rear work light kit, forward-lightings kit, LED work light kit, warning-light brush guards, and work-light brush guard kit.
For those operators who want to work in all types of weather, this tractor supports several attachments for added protection from the elements, including the weather protection umbrella and ABS plastic canopy.
Even on the coldest of days, the engine block heater adapter can help ensure faster engine startup on the John Deere 1025R.
