    Still donít own a Deere, but...

    Maybe soon.

    If you don’t remember me from 2 years ago you can reference this thread: Decisions decisions: 2038r

    In case you’re wondering; we chose the option where my wife got a new car and got pregnant. Therefore the Cub’s issues got bandages.

    Now the Cub quit last week halfway through mowing. I towed it back to the garage and spent the next hour trying to get the wheel horse started. I then finish mowing which takes forever with a 42 inch deck and near turtle ground speed. I keep wondering why I spend time fighting with this crap instead of A: spending time with my family OR B: checking other items off my “to do” list.


    I’m scheming to make it financially possible to buy a tractor. This will be my third attempt to make this happen. A 2032r seems like the best choice.

    Questions:

    Does anyone know how high it can pick stuff up with the loader? I’d like the ability to lift heavy items up to my garage loft. I guess I could build portable ramps to drive up on to gain a few inches if necessary.

    Is there any reason I couldn’t tow it on my 4K lbs 5.5x9 trailer? I know the Deere site says it weighs 2500 lbs but that’s without loader and mower.

    Backhoe? What’s the digging depth of those? I’m sure I have many uses for one, but renting a mini ex is rather reasonable.

    What is the maximum cutting height of a Mid Mount 60 inch deck. Hoping to mow at least 3.5 inches.

    Edit:

    Also, if one was to go 2025, same questions as above and can those now be had with the radial tires? Those are really a must for me.

    The 220R loader mounted on either a 2032R or 2038R has a max lift height of 85" at the pivot point.

    Is there any reason I couldnít tow it on my 4K lbs 5.5x9 trailer? I know the Deere site says it weighs 2500 lbs but thatís without loader and mower.
    Yes, there are reasons. A 2032R is 14.4' long for starters (and that's with no implements). Your trailer is about 5' short as a minimum.

    Backhoe? Whatís the digging depth of those?
    7'

    These are the loader specs:
    Maximum lift height (A)
    2160 mm
    85 in.
    At full height - bucket level(B)
    1999 mm
    79 in.
    At full height - bucket dumped (C)
    1667 mm
    66 in.

    For getting stuff up into the loft, measurement B is the most relevant.

    Is there any reason I couldnít tow it on my 4K lbs 5.5x9 trailer? I know the Deere site says it weighs 2500 lbs but thatís without loader and mower.
    Assuming it would fit on a 9 foot trailer (I have a hard time picturing that), you should be fine with a 4K lbs weight capacity. If you load the tires you may be pushing it.

    I don't have a back hoe or mower deck, but I do know that the command cut system is supposed to go up to 6".

    It's actually just under 13 feet with the loader (just measured mine).

    Without the loader, it's about 10.5 feet from the front to the tip of the three point arms, but the arms can hang over the trailer, as can the loader. Not the best solution (a pretty terrible one, actually), but it might be able to fit. But...I wouldn't do it.

    I never would have thought it was the long. The wheelbase is only 5.6ft, you wouldnít think there would be 5 feet more. Iím not 100% sure why Iíd be trailering it, but you never know. Could always take 3pt arms off I guess. Whatís the real world length of the 2025?

    The 2025 is exactly 10í from the tip of the loader bucket level on the ground to where the back tire contacts the ground.

    You're right. I goofed! The Deere brochure says "115"" and I read that as "175"". I need new glasses!

    So that would probably fit without the bucket, which could easily be put in the truck bed.

    I hate to downsize. I have read that the 2025 is a very capable machine. Can someone tell me where to find loader and mower specs? Deereís website really sucks and it takes forever to figure stuff out.

    The best specifications are in the product brochures. Here is the one for the 2025R:

    Keep in mind that "wheelbase" is measured from the center of the front wheel hubs to the center of the rear wheel hubs.

    I'm not sure what the diameter is on the new 2032R but on the "original" 2032R, the rear tires are 36" diameter. So to the rear of the tires themselves alone adds 18". And then you've still got the 3pt hitch hanging off the back end behind that and the same sort of thing going on with the front end.

    Deere seems to advertise wheelbase a LOT and downplays overall length. Lots of people are trying to figure out the same sort of thing you're doing here and I've never seen anyone ask a question where wheelbase was really relevant.
