I currently have a 3720 for snow moving, yard grading, garden tilling, and misc. loader work, along with an X485 and GX255 for lawn duty. I've been shopping for a second CUT to use at my work (light grading, leveling, snow moving, and materials moving around new construction homes) and at home. I was thinking about a 1025R, I don't want anything too bulky or heavy 'cause it will be trailered on a regular basis, but job sites can get muddy at times with deeper ruts, probably not ideal for a 1025R. I found this site, and with all the very helpful information found here, am very close to deciding on a 3025E. It doesn't cost much more than the 1025R which is really shocking to me, but is a larger tractor & seems to be much more appropriate for what I'd use it for. I wouldn't have thought 25 HP would be anywhere near adequate, but all the excellent feedback here has changed my mind, would like to thank everyone for that. When not using this tractor for work, I can certainly share implements at home with my 3720. For the smaller projects I do around home, I'm looking forward to not having a cab from spring thru fall. With the new tractor, I'm planning to get a 60" brush cutter, along with a 72" blade; between this and the implements I already have, should have just about everything covered for now. Still undecided on the tires, R4 or turf...
After reading here for some time, thought I should just join, will need to post pictures of the 3025E if I do end up getting it. It will be a 2018 model with all the changes coming to the 3025E for 2018, hope to get some good pictures of the changes so anyone interested can see. That really sounds like a GREAT tractor for the price, dealer says they will get me a 2018 with the current rebates. Guessing those huge rebates will be reduced significantly when the redesigned 2018's are in circulation.
Let's see if this works, here's the current collection:
