    1025R With or Without loader?

    looking at getting a 1025r, not sure if i want to get with the loader or not. i dont see myself having much need for one. i was thinking just put the money for the loader towards weights, i-match, and tiller. A dealer not to far away has some 2015 1025r that are still new, for 12,500 with out the loader and theirs another one with a new 2017 1025r with a loader for 14,500. any help as far as loader or not will be greatly appreciated

    IMO, it would depend on what you plan to do with the tractor and what type of place you will be using it on. I owned a tractor without a loader once and it did not take long before I realized that I did not want another one without one.

    I'm the opposite, I can't imagine having a tractor without a loader, planting trees, digging stumps, moving heavy objects, hauling equipment for fencing, hauling brush, plowing snow, I use mine to get on the roof, push down small trees, level ground, I could keep going for hours.

    Ive seen customers come in and get a tractor without the loader and say I don't need it, I won't use it, blah blah. Month later we are installing a loader. Every time it's been that way. I haven't seen it the other way getting a loader and never needing it. So that's my take. You may actually not need it

    I bought my 1026r without a loader in 2011 . I added a loader last summer to do some work up at my cottage rather than renting a machine. Its not a big deal to add a loader at a latter date .

    Only $2000 for a loader? You'll more than double the usefulness of your tractor with a loader. Once you get pallet forks, you'll use it to move everything around your property.
    ...and with the bucket, throw the wheelbarrow in the trash.

    Get the loader!

    Gotta have at least one tractor with a loader... the only reason I didn't get a loader on my 1025 was because I already had another old tractor with a loader. You don't realize how many things you can do with one until you have it.

    I'm just over the GA/SC line. If you are nearby let me know. I'd be glad to have you come play with my 1025R with a loader, try out pallet forks, see how useful bucket hooks can be. If you try out a loader and then don't get one, I will be amazed.

    Whether I needed the loader or not for 2K more I'd get the current model. The 2017 has some improvements over the older models especially the improved glow plug cycling.

    Well, ill be using it on about 4 acres. Primary purposes will be mowing and working the garden. We haven't had a tractor with a loader on our farm as long as ive been around. Im kinda in the mindset Ive made it this long without one why now, ya know? I figure what little pushing I'll have to do with it I can just use a rear blade
