New to posting but been lurking here for a couple years. I just put a down payment on a 1025R with the H120 and the 60" MMM. I haven't taken delivery yet and have been thinking I may ask my dealer if I can roll a couple of implements into the order and take advantage of the financing. At the same time, I've been reading a whole lot about the 60" mower and have seen quite a bit about the leveling and height issues that you see (especially when not adjusted properly).
I am buying this tractor because we just purchased a home in the country with around 3 acres. Much if it is sloped in one way or another. There are many trees and other obstacles.
Given all this - if you were me, would you elect for the 60" or forgo and get the 54" (which would theoretically give me a few more bucks to spend on a plow or the i-match hitch. Why?
As an aside, has John Deere made any changes to the deck suspension to address the issues folks have been noting for a couple years now? I think I'm getting a 2017 1025r so was hoping maybe they have made a few engineering changes to address the deck leveling/height issues.
Thanks for any input you can give folks!
