I had ordered the Tractor On April 17th
They actually had a 2017 1025R sitting at one of there other dealers But Because of Back ordered Parts it has taken a Month to get the 1025R TLB and the Dealer is also very busy with Planting season so I knew it would Take a while. My X485 Only Took a week to get In 2003
1025R Tractor Loader Backhoe
53inch Loader Bucket
Independent Hydraulic Lift for Mowing deck
60inch 7 Iron auto connect
647 Deere Tiller
8 & 12inch Backhoe Buckets
LED Forward Light Kit
Rear work light kit
Front quick Hitch with Hydraulic angle
R4's filled with rim Guard & 72Lb Cast Iron wheel weights
Well when I first Order the 1025RTLB I originally was going with a 42inch Frontier Tiller. But Deere Gave my dealer a date of 5 June 2017 so Opted instead for a JD 647 my dealer Had in stock.
Several thing were On back order Until last Friday & today The 55AMP alternator Came in last Friday & Today the LED work Lights Came in. While it will be delivered on this coming Friday. It will still Not Have the 8inch Bucket & the Rear 72LB Wheel weights Because currently Deere is out of both the 8inch Bucket & rear 72Lb Wheel weights. The weights I am really surprised there out of. So My barn is going to get a Little crowed Unless the Cement contractor finally starts On cementing My Hose stall(Garden tractor Stalls) before Friday.
Reading thru The earlier Threads I saw on this forum about the Independent Hydraulic Lift for Mowing deck Made Up my mind to get it. When I finally decide to get a 1025RTLB I was considering the Hydraulic lift Kit That uses the Joystick Control. Because at first I didn't Like the sound of the Independent Hydraulic Lift Because it Only lifts and doesn't Hold It. But realizing I didn't want to switch hoses each time I used the Loader. Not That I will be Mowing much with the Loader On. I almost think I should Have Opted out of the Auto connect & Mid Mount Mower all together Because I think I will still be doing most of My mowing with My X748 or My GX335 anyways. Now I have 3 Loader tractors In My collection of Machines. I think the White GT2055 with Kwik-way Loader is Going to stay on Permanent loan to one my other Brothers Just to make room In the Barn.
Heavy Hitch & BXpanded will soon be getting a Big Order some time this summer
I feel Like a little Kid waiting for Christmas to Happen. Can't wait to put the 1025R to work on Friday
