I'm new to your site....
Yesterday I spent half a day with the local JD dealer discussing the pro's and Con's of a JD1026R.
This is the spec that we were discussing.....
1026 R (New from factory)
54"auto connect deck (Smaller deck to fit around some trees close to boundary)
3PH for the front
Front weight bracket
580L MCS with chute, parking stand, castor wheel + fill indicator
H120 Loader with 49" bucket and ballast box
54" snow blower (A guarantee that it will never snow again!)
Just a few hundred questions!........what are the good and bad points?
As I understand the front 3PH and PTO may have to be removed to enable the cutting deck to be used, if so how difficult is the removal process?
Is there anything that I should add to list....bear in mind that the better half will kill me when she see's the bank balance after I paid for this lot!!!
Great site by the way!
