    Hi from down under!

    G'day. Rick here from Port Lincoln, South Australia.
    Just bought a 2018 1023e with 12 hrs on it from an older bloke in Horsham, 1100ks away.
    It is fitted with a 4 in 1 loader and the 60 inch mid deck manual connect.
    I am currently making a 3 point carryall, fitted with a tow hitch and chain links to permit towing of a steel mesh sheet I use to level a 100 metre gravel driveway.
    Have established a 3 acre block which has lots of loose big granite over the past 4 years; I bought a used Toyota KHuski skid steer to do the heavy work which was marvellous, strong hydraulics, reliable, easy to service but made a big mess for the finer work. That sold quickly so given the work is now mowing and lots of lighter loader work (we have 1.5 acres of garden, the 1023 is the replacement.
    My nearest JD dealer is 80ks away.
    I used a lot of JD big stuff on farms in my past and got on well with it.
    So far I have found the 1023 OK but fiddly and even harder than the Huski to work on in terms of access.
    This site and its associated forum is INVALUABLE as it has helped detective unexpected problems with brakes, handbrake and mid deck pto clock collar.
    More strength to you.

    Rick,


    One day I’d like to see how operating a tractor upside down works.

    Welcome

    Hi Rick,
    Welcome from Milan, Ohio.
    I have a friend in Brisbane who participates in the Para Olympics. She moved to Australia about 20 years ago from Toronto Canada. She is quite an inspiration. Someday Australia is on my travel list.

    Have fun with your tractor. Enjoy the forum.
