Hello from Wisconsin, I am a long time John Deere owner new to this forum, did some reading on here as I was researching the purchase of my new 1025R that I am PATIENTLY waiting for!!thought I would sign up, so I can ask questions as they pop up. traded off a GX345 for this new one and had a 214 before that. Bought a new house with 2.5 acres of lawn too cut and the 345 48"c deck took 3 hours to cut. Hopping to get to two hours with the 60" MMM also got the 54" front mount snow blower, powerflow bagger and the loader couldn't swing for the cab. I can hardly wait to get it and start using it and getting use to all of the controls.
