    What brand attachments are SCUT owners using?

    I've decided to purchase a 1025R (hopefully this Saturday if all goes well) with FEL and MMM.

    I also want to pick up a 48" box blade. Is there an advantage to the JD/Frontier box blade or should I be looking at brands like County Line from Tractor Supply or Land Shark?

    With $0 down and 0% interest, I wouldn't mind adding it to the total, but not if other brands are just as good and significantly cheaper.

    Thanks!

    I stuck with JD and Frontier and all bought from my JD dealer so that I only have one person to complain to (other than myself for doing something dumb but that rarely occurs) .

    The 0% more than offset the lower costs (and often lower quality) of some of the other manufacturers.

    I like the green to match so when I purchased my 2025 I got what I could with the 0 down. I know once you finance through Jd you have to get insurance for the life of the loan. Anything you buy within that purchase gets put on the insurance so thatís a plus

    Yeah, my pet peeve is getting the runaround for third party stuff that was bought too far from home.

    Good luck with your choices !

    I do not have any frontier brand stuff. My Brush Hog, 5' grader blade, and Cultivator are County Line. My ballast box and pallet forks are Titan. Have not had any issues.

    I have all John Deere and Frontier attachments and implements EXCEPT the frame for my Carry all, which was made by "Land Pride" (I think....). It was their gold / brownish color and the very first thing my wife said was "You are painting that JD Green, I hope?" .....Yes dear.....

    I like having one place for all the parts and service issues I can't handle myself. Everything fits and works perfectly and everything matches......

    Yes, you can get some implements for less at a Big Box Farm Store or some other sources including other dealers and Yes, they can be less money.

    Just so you know, Land Pride is a Kubota company which simply makes them even more stable and provides a broader market. Land Pride is a good company out of Kansas who makes implements for a range of dealers and they are also sold by many of the box stores. If you have a Land Pride Implement you could contact the headquarters for parts, etc.

    My main advice for you is to NOT buy implements which are too large for your new machine. Size the competitive implements to match what Deere Frontier suggests for your new tractor. For example, if Deere says the 1 series should use a 48" wide rear brush style 3 point mower, then that's the size to buy.

    Make sure you buy the IMatch or "Quick Hitch" for the 3 point and the bushings. They make attaching and dropping implements a piece of cake.......and I don't know anyone who has used them who wouldn't recommend them.

    If you are going to be financing your purchase, Deere makes it super easy and everything is on one loan. If you are going to be paying cash, then you don't have to bother with trying to package things.

    Also, keep in mind how you will get implements from sources other than Deere home to your house. Deere will deliver everything. Its up to you to get the implements home from many of the alternatives......if you don't have a truck and trailer, that can be a problem or negate the lower cost of those who don't or can't deliver.

    One last suggestion, the handiest implement I own are the pallet forks. You use them in ways you can't imagine and they are super handy for picking up and moving other implements. I strongly suggest you own a set of forks....

    Just remember, often you get what you pay for. Read the threads and see the experiences of others. There are many decent implement companies, a few really good implement companies and a couple who's entire marketing strategy is to undercut and undersell everyone else. If you are going to be the cheapest product out there, you have to make compromises. Just make sure these compromises and their operational methods, tactics and business standards and ethics aren't the opposite of what you feel and find important.

    I am not seeking to start an argument or disparage anyone else's choice of implements. I will just say that when I make purchases, price is not always the driving concern and quality and integrity mean much more to me. Everyone deserves to be paid for their hard work, ingenuity and creativity. When one company has a pattern of using the images, engineering, and work product of others without permission nor fairly compensating those who actually own and developed the ideas, concepts, markets, etc. that's not a company I will do business with. Enough said.

    Two things to remember,
    1.Parts,if you can't get them 2,5,10 years down the road the money you saved up front is useless if you have to get new because part are no longer available.
    2.You have a Cat 1 Limited 3pt hitch.Not all cat 1 will fit your tractor,normal cat 1 is 16" from floor to pins cat 1 limited is 12". Lift height on the 3pt arms is going to be 22-24" so 6-8" off the ground from 16 so that's not much especially on uneven ground.

    As far as the insurance for your loan, dont let your salesmn talk you in to their insurance. You dont need it. If you have homeowners insurance you are already covered of course. Just add JD as an "additional insured". Im sure they get some kind of a kickback by convincing you to pay for the JD insurance but we arent thqt naive!
