Just want to say Hello from the Rockies of Colorado. I am a retired Engineer and I live at the foot of Pikes Peak at 6808 ft. I have about 8 acres of tough mountain grass to mow and keep groomed so the weeds and bugs don’t take over. I need to keep drives graded and 6 ft snow drifts under control. So I upgraded my smaller John Deere S2554 with snow blade to a new 1023e with loader and 54”D mower deck. I would have liked to go with a 60”D but I have a few places around the homestead where the smaller deck works better. So I now have a tractor that can do most any thing I need here on the Old Homestead.
