if any of you have seen any of my posts, just after my purchase of my 2038r our home burnt. so this has changed my short term plan. was planning on purchasing a small tract of land (15 acres)that had a nice new machine shed shop on it already and purchased the tractor to maintain it, and start the property for an eventual home build. so now after the fire we arent going to be able to purchase anything and i am in a quandry
we live in a subdivision with 20 other homes
my current inventory is a 2015 x738 with 54 in deck and front blade paid off
2018 2038r with loader and mid mount deck with a loan
i know the owner or original builder of the subdivision is 82 and he plows the snow but for how much longer and id love to do it when he quits.
so here are my questions
i cant hardly justify the 2038 once i get all my landscaping done
will a 1025 and a front 6ft blade be able to take care of the roadway in here. it is 1.6 miles total down and back and 16 ft wide.
will it mow as nice as my x738?
here is what i am thinking
get rid of both the x738 and the 2038 if the 1025 will mow as nice and would handle the snow removal (would also purchase a front blower as i am thinking of it now)
keep the mower and sell the tractor and buy a tractor if i get the snow job
or i am open to any suggestions
i am leaning towards the 1025 if it will mow as nice i know it would handle just my snow needs
