After watching me use the front end loader and box blade on my 1025r, my wife says I shouldn't quit my day job! I don't have any excuse with the box blade, as I have one on my old Ford 8N and have been (trying) to use it for 20+ years. (Wife says I have a depth perception problem with it.) The FEL is a relatively new thing - I've just had the 1025r for about 9 months. I can usually get my dirt or mulch moved to where I need it or get my burn pile pushed up, but I'm pretty messy doing so. I've watched a few You Tubes, but that's about all of the training I've had. Anybody got any suggestions? Does it just take lots more practice? Does JD or anybody offer training courses? Is there any hope for me?
