    New 1025r Owner

    Had my new 1025r with 54" mower deck and H120 loader delivered June 6.

    I have just over an acre. First tractor for me. Really like the features on it.

    Moved 12 yards of road gravel the past two weeks. Works great except the salesman didn't tell me I should have the ballast box if I have a loader. With my uneven ground in the yard found out the must of having ballast in the back when the loader is full of gravel. Ordered a ballast box and when I went to pick it up, Parts Tech said the tractor should never have been sold with a loader without a ballast box.

    Looking forward to posting on the GTT Forum. Have already learned things about my tractor by reading the posts.

    Welcome from the top of Maine!

    Propper ballast is a must. I would've never been able to move my dad's boat dock the other night without one.
