I have the John Deere 2025R (the new model) and called the company (Heavy Hitch) to see if this hitch would fit my tractor because the 2025R is so similar to the 1000 series tractor. The company representative I talked to stated it should. The hitch plate I received fit perfectly and took less than ten minutes to install. Looking at the product you can see the very high quality of the workmanship. I am very pleased to have this on my tractor.
