I live in upstate NY and have owned a 1025R with front loader and midmount mower deck for a little over a year now. Grew up in the suburbs in a house where all I needed was a push mower and an a couple hours to mow the entire lawn. Now I live on several acres out in the country so I am a total novice and tractor ownership and operations. Looking at some threads has already helped with a few minor issues that came up in the last year so I figured joining up would be even more beneficial. Looking forward to getting to know all of you!
