I am in the waiting stage of receiving my new JD. I went with a 1025R FILB (TLB) with the 60" 7-Iron Auto Connect Deck. Just ordered Kens Weld on Hooks&Clevis.
I have been watching the forum on/off for a couple of months for research and general info.
Signed the paperwork 4/28 and I am nearing delivery/pickup. They said 3 weeks but it is now delayed a little.
