Single Point Connector for Deere Subcompact Tractors

Green Parts Store Logo

If you’ve been wishing for a single point hydraulic connector for your 1025r, wish no more! Through our partnership with Green Parts Store we have a great deal for you today. We’re also excited to correct one area from our Kubota BX vs Deere 1025r comparison where the BX clearly defeated the 1025r.

The Single Point Connector Kit

The kit has an impressive number of components. Overall there are 91 parts according to the contents of the kit. 91 sounds like a lot, but it isn’t really that complicated. 4 hoses for the tractor side, the single point connector itself, the bracket that mounts to the loader mast, 4 replacement hoses for the loader (shorter) and an assortment of nuts, bolts, and hydraulic fittings.

Go to GreenPartStore.com to pick up a kit of your own. In the video linked above I stated the kit cost was well over $800. However, Deere has reduced the price to $634.70. By using code TTWT at checkout you will get free shipping direct to your door on your entire order. Also, if you act by the end of 2020 GreenPartStore.com will send you the same hat you see me wearing in the linked video above FREE with your order.

Installation

Installation of the single point connector is relatively easy. No need for complex tools and while having an extra set of hands (or a Christy) may be nice, it isn’t necessary. You will need a 1/2 torque wrench capable of up to 250ft-lbs of torque! You can get one here: 1/2″ Torque Wrench From Amazon

Step 1 – Attach the Single Point Bracket

Start by removing the 3 bolts on the right side of the loader mast. Expect that these are going to be on there tight. This is where a large breaker bar comes in handy.

Tip: Remove the side panel to provide yourself with more room to get to the back side of the bolts should you need to get a backer wrench on there.

Once you have the old bolts out, you’ll put the bracket that holds the single point connector on using new longer bolts supplied in the kit. The replacement bolts are installed opposite of how the originals were due to their longer length.

Step 2 – Assemble the Tractor Side Fittings and Hoses

You’ll want to double check the order of the hose colors to be sure they are in the proper order. Based on how our kit arrived, my guess is the caps don’t get installed at the factory in a specific order. I would also suggest you only finger tighten the hoses to the connectors at this point. You’ll want the ability to rotate the hoses to the optimal position once you have them installed on the tractor.

Step 3 – Attach the Tractor Side Connector

Once you have the two bolts installed that hold the connector to the bracket, you’ll want to attach the couplers to the other end of the hoses. This is where having the ability to rotate the hoses into the best possible location comes into play. Since these hoses are stationary and remain connected to the tractor, they really just need to be positioned so that they are out of the way.

Step 4 – Attach the New Loader Side Hoses

This has to be the easiest step of this install. Famous last words? If you saw the video linked above, you’ll understand. If you didn’t, there is lots of good info in the video that you’ll want to see!

Tip: Be prepared with some sort of bucket or oil pan when you remove the hoses from the loader or you’ll end up with hydraulic oil on the ground.

Be sure to add the additional protective wrap to the hoses before connecting them to the tractor! Just another example of the thought that went into this Deere kit. Hydraulic hoses aren’t cheap, so protecting them is important. Of course you can pick up replacement hoses from DiscountHydraulicHose.com/TTWT should one of yours get damaged. Use code TTWT for a 5% discount.

Step 5 – Attach the Loader Side Connector and Holder

The manual suggests to connect the Single Point Connector to the tractor when installing the connectors. Before doing this, disconnect the quick connect hoses from the tractor or you’ll have another mess on your hands! Once the connectors are installed, pull the Single Point Connector from the tractor and hook-up the hoses from the loader.

The last piece of the kit is a bracket that gives you a convenient spot to hold the loader side connector. There are just two bolts to fix it to the top inside of the loader boom arm. That’s it, you’ve done it… now sit back an marvel at what you just accomplished. Well, maybe you should try it out first!

Summary

While it can be said that adding a single point connector to your 1023e, 1025r, or 2025r subcompact tractor may not be necessary, I can’t think of a better upgrade for our Johnny. If you’ve never struggled connecting or disconnecting the hydraulic lines on your loader, you have good strength in your hands, or you rarely remove your loader, then the impact of this upgrade may not be the same for you. Of course, if you are like us and you take the loader off frequently or have ever struggled to disconnect or reconnect the hydraulic lines, I highly recommend the genuine Deere kit from GreenPartStore.com. With the price now just $634 + tax and free shipping by using coupon code TTWT, you will not be sorry you made the investment.

  1. Any idea whether this might work with the H120 and a 1026R? My local dealer is telling me the part isn’t compatible but I am wondering if its a “won’t work” or “won’t work without minor modification”?

    • Minor modification…the hose ends which connect to the loader are right angle on the 120r…you need straight ones on the h120. Your dealer (or another hydraulic shop) can replace the hose ends…or make new hoses to fit

  2. Thank you Tim for the training, advice and entertainment you provide. You are the first site I head for these days. I hope God will continue to bless you and your family. Another loyal fan ๐Ÿ™

  3. Thanks to Tim on his reference to the new JD single point hydraulic connecter, and the special offer from Green Part Store I installed mine today in 3 hours with help. My local JD dealer wanted 3 hours at $100 per hour.it was simple and very well explained by Timโ€™s video. Bravo TTWT !
