Re: Mower deck removal on a JD 425...
All right, the newb is resurrecting a super old thread. Better than starting a new one, right?
I got my deck off my 425 to install a 3 point hitch. All of that went really well, except for one step.
How, exactly, do I secure the lift arms in the fully upward position? I know I'll need to disconnect them from the hydraulic system, otherwise they continue to raise and lower along with the hitch, exposing themselves to damage. I can see the attachment on each arm that connects it to the hydraulic system, but how do I then secure the arms in the upward position? The deck knob mentioned above doesn't seem to have much effect on anything.
