    Newbie with 1025R

    Just dropping in to say hi. I"m sure I'll have a ton of questions as I never have touched a tractor before. Really excited to get one, been wanting on forever (10-15 years).
    I received tractor with a loader, 48" box blade, Imatch Hitch, and a ballast box. Mostly used for mowing, but this fall I need to dump loads and loads of dirt back in my yard and replant some grass. The heat the last 3-5 years and tore up my very hilly 2 1/2 acres.

    I did post in the SCUT forum, have issues or I should say questions. One is the loader, does it have to be level to take it off?

    There is not one place around to do that. I'm working on clearing out the garage to get it done.

    Be sure and get an Operator's Manual too, and read it. Can save you headaches, as well as help you operate safely.

    Welcome from WV.



    One thing to keep in mind is it is a tractor. They are not plug and play like most modern vehicles. I'm not sure what attachments you got with your tractor or what you intend to do with it but remember that Rome was not built in a day nor do you have to be an expert on everything all at once. The vast majority of the guys and gals here are the take things apart and put them back together type of people. I recommend you become the same kind of person. Knowing how your tractor works will go a long way in knowing when something is not right and knowing how to fix it.

    We also like pictures, not only because we like to see what you got but they also go a long way in seeing the problem you are trying to fix, so post a lot of them.

    Good luck and enjoy your new toy.
