John Deere 1025r Snow Blower
John Deere 1025r Snow Blower welcome to our website for the latest compact tractor reviews, ratings, prices and comparisons. The John Deere 1025 R Sub-Compact utility Tractor is undoubtedly well and truly up to the high standard of appearance that John Deere has become famous for. Although small the small 24HP (17.7 KW) tractor seems powerful for its size and ready for work. The 1025 R is powered by a 3-cylinder Yanmar engine of 24.2 hp (17.8 KW). Although only small engines in this series have been developed to meet the environmental requirements of the Tier-4 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), featuring low levels of exhaust and emissions.
The John Deere 1025 R engine is located in its own compartment under the large lifting hood and behind the radiator and cooling system. As soon as the engine is fired in life, it becomes apparent the insulated area of the engine compartment greatly reduces the amount of noise resonant under the hood. At no time during my test do I need to rev the guts out of the little Yanmar motor to generate sufficient power to the mower or hydraulic oil flow to operate the tools, whether it be the frontend loader, backhoe or lawnmower.
I really appreciate that John Deere has resisted the tendency to more complicate simple procedures on new machines. Starting this model is very predictable – simply place the Hydrostatic gear selector switch in the neutral position and turn the key. I accept that security should be considered, but I hate it when I have to work my way through endless steps, carried out in a particular order, just to get started.
With a 12-volt electrical system and heat plugs, for cold weather start, will provide the 1025 R with formidable boot reliability in all situations. Choose between high or low speed on the speed selector mounted on the left side, set the desired RPM and by placing a foot on the front or rear steering pedal is all that is needed to move is not rocket science. Other controls include the four-wheel drive selector, Mid-mount and rear PTO options that can be used as rear or intermediate mounts individually or both can be operated Simultaneously.

The three-point rear link arms (TPL) can be mounted with the control lever installed next to the operator’s seat. The lifting capacity of the 1025 R is not huge but useful 309 kg. A practical addition that was once reserved for the larger members of the family is a link drop controller that regulates the speed of the decent preventing excessive stress on man and machine.
On the 1025 R, a Dual Mid-SCV, [selective control Valve] which is standard equipment, operates the optional independent loader and lifting kit for the medium-mount mower. This is an area I would like to see John Deere re-evaluate because it requires a front loader hydraulic hose being disconnected and the clipper hose plugged in and visa-poured every time I switched between mowing and loader work.
On the other hand, the connection point is difficult to access for anyone who has larger hands than a five-year-old and the mower and the frontend loader cannot be used at the same time. There’s a gap here that I can’t avoid revealing. Climbing aboard and entering the operator’s seat proves a real nightmare. It’s not just annoying but dangerous. The shape of the ROPS (rollover protection system) leaves very little space on board the machine. Just getting into the operator’s seat meant me threading through the ROPS and around the control levers of the backhoe. But every time I do this, I find that I accidentally bumped the levers and sent the backhoe into the involuntary movement.
Sometimes I feel as if an injury could have happened easily if I had had my hand on the backhoe during one of these unwanted movements. Simply straightening the ROPS would provide the extra space needed to embark on a much easier and safer way. But once on board, there is plenty of room for the legs to sit comfortably and all the controls are set up for the easy access operation. Keep in mind that if you keep on the slopes and the lawns the ride will be smooth, but in the paddock or rough ground the small wheels and tires, 18x 8.5-10 R4 front and 26×12-12 R4 rear, combined with a wheelbase of 1, 450MM provide a lap of shaking Bone enough.
This is not a complaint limited to this factor particular model, it is consistent with all machines of similar size. The whole mower may be the best lap. Just drive directly on top and the PTO automatically slips in place and the hitch points lock. The removal is just as easy to do by releasing the locking pins and inverting it.
I discovered the only requirement to help this process is to engage four-wheel drive, which allows the wheels before grabbing the deck of the mower and driving on more rather than just pushing the deck around in front of the tractor. I put the mower through different degrees of operation, i.e. long or short grass, and found that it performed very well. In the rough soil, the bridge tends to bounce and bite in a bit, but I found this is easily prevented by lowering the anti-scalp wheels on the deck. Setting the motor to about 2, 200RPM provides enough power to drive the mower in most conditions.
I give a great tick for Clippers easy tethering/Detaching and overall performance. The front loader and backhoe would seem to possess the manufacturing quality I grew to expect from John Deere. After a day of digging holes, digging gravel and pushing the tree branches into a pile, I am well and truly convinced that this small working horse is able to play as well as any other machine I have driven in this class.
Engaging 4WD provided the 1025 R this little extra thrust to effortlessly slip into a pile of slag and completely fill the bucket in one attempt. With a full bucket I maneuvered with ease through a variety of twists, and moving my foot from one directional pedal to the other makes an extremely smooth transition from the front to the opposite. While driving the approximately 1025 R with a complete bucket, I have to use proper care because at only 655kg it tends to want to lift a wheel inside while turning, but at no stage do I fill at risk of tipping.

On the one hand, I’m really rapt with the performance of the loader, but while detaching it from the tractor, it quickly became apparent that there is a necessary requirement in the uncoupling process that will bore the hell out of me and I suspect you as well. The activation of the mechanical decoupling steps of the charger is great. Simply lower the charger to place the pressure on the mounting assembly, then from the driver’s seat lift two unlocking levers while the charger is lifted, it detaches and is left resting on its stands.
However. While backing I almost ripped off a network of electrical wiring installed to activate the mechanism that prevents the bucket from tipping its load back to the operator while the charger raises to the full extension. I immediately turned off the engine and put on disconnecting all the electrical plugs controlling the various operations. Unfortunately, and oddly enough, there are no identifiable markings on identical plugs to indicate which ones connect in which when the charger is turned on. There are two ways to solve this, either incorporating each individual yarn into a single bank plug or making the electronics disappear and using a more mechanical approach.

I firmly believe that a small tractor like this should not be overloaded with unnecessary electronics which can be easily damaged making the machine impracticable. The performance of the backhoe is as impressive as the frontend loader. Like its larger counterparts, it is necessary to lower the rear stabilizer legs to lift the rear wheels from the ground. The same procedure must be repeated at the front using the front loader as contentment. Combined, this creates a very stable base in which the backhoe can run from.
I can’t really blame the performance of the backhoe. Operating at the comfort of 2, 200rpm, it is extremely responsive while retaining very smooth movement in all directions and having the power to dig its way into the hard ground on our Western Victorian property which has not seen the rain since a while. The hydraulic pump provides a total of 24 liters per minute and of that, 10.8 is reserved for steering, leaving only 13.2 l/min to the service tools. However, this seems to be quite adequate for every task I try.
