    Hey you guys, from Pennsylvania

    I have no friends and hope I can make friends here.
    I am on the fence getting a new John Deere 1023 or 1025,,,,got price the 1023 with the front loader and mow deck is $13,575 and the same equip 1025 is $16,275.
    I just bought a new house with a good acre of grass that I will need a riding lawnmower that I never owned before plus I have a garage and driveway 150' long to plow out in the winter,,, so I thought "why not have one machine that does both"?
    I already own a new 2018 Polaris Ranger 900 side-by-side with a plow with full cab and heater that can plow any snow but I don't off-road ride it anymore, just use it to plow so I was thinking of giving it away to my son and his family that they could have more fun with it.
    The issue I have is will the John Deere get the extreme 4x4 traction in the snow like a 4x4 side-by-side has and will the diesel engine start up after sitting in a cold garage? (I won't have room in my garage to own both)
    Should I just keep my Polaris for plowing snow and just buy a cheap riding lawnmower or buy the JD 1023-1025? Money isn't a problem.
    I was also looking at the Yanmar similar models that were priced at $17,200 and $20,200.
    A friend gave me the idea cause he wants a 4x4 compact tractor but his wife won't allow him to buy one so I like to buy one just to make him jealous with envy (his wife is the breadwinner of the family, he only married her for her money)
    I didn't move into my new house yet and I got time to figure that out plus I will be busy moving in and buying new stuff for the house so I have time to buy one, but in early May I am going to need something to cut my grass.
    Everything I buy, I buy the best cause I only want to buy it once, that's why I own a new F-150 with the 3.5 ecoboost and if I buy a compact 4x4 tractor I want the best,,,, is the John Deere the best?
    Thank You

    Watch out. Some of these guys will recommend a 9 series to cut your grass. They don’t offer a drive-over auto-connect belly mower for those tractors, but they do have A/C.

    Welcome from central Ohio

    Either 1025R or keep the Polaris and get a zero turn. It really depends on how much you will use the tractor as a tractor and not just as a lawn mower. Just my 2 cents.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    from Hagerstown md I can see you will fit right in with most of us especially in the good morning thread in my opinion john deere is the best I don't know much about the 1 series but you can check out ttwt site for some good videos on the 1 series Tractor Time with Tim - Tim, Christy & Katriel's Tractor Adventures I would probably go with the 1025r due to the fact it has a lot more features then a 1023e what part of pa are you in I border the pa line by Waynesboro hers a link to you tube videos of ttwt https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLF...kfxpjP9hdLkNrg there is a lot of information on his website
