Just took delivery of a new 1025R yesterday. Also opted for the 60" MMM, 54" Plow blade, BB2048L Box Blade, and 17P utility cart. Already burned through a full tank of fuel mowing about 8 acres of very overgrown grass. This is my first tractor so I don't have anything to compare it to but so far this thing is a beast. Hope to try out the box blade next.
