    Hello from Calgary, AB

    Hello Everyone

    Name is Dom and 28 years of age, I own a small landscape maintenance/ construction business. New to the tractor life, I picked up a 1025R almost 2 weeks ago, but i am really enjoying it. Ive put roughly 100 hrs on the machine and gone through first service as well. Really enjoying it and getting as much seat time as i can wether its snow removal at the moment or ripping down the road to the mailbox (roughly a mile away).

    I bought the 1025 with the 54" blower (monster of a unit) and the 54" blade, Haven't had much time with the blade as I'm making 2 9" extensions for each side. Wife and I bought a acreage outside the city and thought this would be the best piece of equipment for us. Planning on picking up a FEL and Tiller.

    Land and driveways were neglected for years and will need lots of levelling and care to get it where i want. I have 3 Ramrod Mini Skidsteers but they're slow and don't get much accomplished over the majority of the property. Will probably need a box blade and rear blade as well.

    Any other attachments i may need? Brands people recommend? Located in Canada it doesn't seem like we have the best support in some areas. Also don't want to pay a fortune at the dealer.
