My 1025R will be delivered on Friday. I need to confirm with them which bucket I want. The standard is the 49" but I can get the 53" for $75 more (both quick attach). Is there a reason I should go with one or the other? Obviously the 53" is bigger, but technically it will lower the lift capacity slightly. One Deere guy told me that the loader is designed for the 49" so running a 53" with a load in the bucket may limit the lift height due to the extra weight.
Cost is irrelevant - it's only $75.
My primary concern was that the bucket be wider than the front tires on the tractor, which I think both buckets are?...
