    Looks like I'll be replacing my JD345. 1025R owner question

    My primary use is mowing and pulling trailer/sprayer/sweeper. Have slopes, wet areas and a few obstacles with limbs. Was all set on a X758 with 3 point for a lawn rake and spreader but am having a hard time not jumping to the 1025R. The X758 seems more suited for my task but the 1025R would hold value better and could be more flexible. I already have a JD4710 with 4-in-1 bucket and 48 backhoe, MX6 and don't plant to sell (actually considering upgrading to a 4066R).

    Since I already have a CUT, would I be better suited with a SCUT or X758?

    For mowing, spraying, and sweeping, x758 is a far better option.

    I have no experience with either machine but if it were me I would likely choose the one that gives me more versatility. You may want to use the tractor in an area where you don't want to take a larger machine. Just my .02

    Get the 1025R. If you decide you need a powered impliment on the 3 ph, it will cost a small fortune to upgrade the X series. Same tractor just comes with all you REALLY need. Cannot see there being a difference in cut. Decks are same. That is what makes ot breaks the cut. Yep definately will hold value better, but if you are into pretty stylish and useless, go for the X series. Have my 1025R TLB and NEVER looked back!

    I'm really into what's the most effective, useful and comfortable piece of equipment for my needs. Mowing in 4WD in very tippy situations is also very important.

    If the primary use is mowing and spraying, and you have slopes, I would go with the X. Especially considering you have a tractor with a loader and back hoe already. The only reason I went with the 1025 is because I wanted the backhoe. I have one slope that I mow and I can tell you my '73 JD 140 never felt tippy on that slope where the 1025 definitely requires some more ballast and even then is enough to make my rear pucker at times.

    It seems to me that you are on the fence. So I would push you in the direction of the 1025. You are already questioning the reasons why you should go with the 1025 and they are all positive reasons and you won't regret it down the road, whether you decide to keep it or sell it. And as far as being more versatile, you won't get any argument from me on that topic!

    Good luck with your decision!

    This is along my train of thought too. Don't get me wrong, the 1 series is a great machine. But I find it a great "all in one" machine. If I had a bigger machine, I wouldn't buy a 1 series for mowing, spraying, etc. I would be all over an X7 series. Resale be darned. Good luck and keep us posted

    The X7's AWD for sure if you are mowing and turning on slopes. The 10 series can scuff the lawn in 4x4 mode while making tight turns.

    I was in the same situation as you with a larger 3 series so I didn't need a loader or backhoe either. I did add the 3 pt hitch to my X739 for a small box blade and rake for areas the larger tractor couldn't go in.

    x758, no doubt about it.

    I had one, and traded it for a 1025r, because I don't have a bigger tractor with a loader like you do. If I did, no way in hell would I have ever parted with that awesome machine. I miss it all the time.

    You will be much happier with an x758 for your needs. The hydraulic AWD is sooo good. You don't know how good until you get used to it and then switch to mechanical 4WD. Ugh. It's significantly lighter than the 1025r and much more maneuverable over rough ground (when you factor in having to engage and disengage the 4WD on the 1). HDAP tires beat the pants off of R4s for just about anything (I'm seriously considering getting a set for my 1025r).

    For mowing on side slopes, no contest. I did things with the x758 without hesitation that would make me wet my pants in a 1025r (as I roll it).

    I love my 1025r. I really do. But every time I go to mow I wish I still had the x.

    The one downside mowing wise is that the autoconnect deck on the x758 is not as good (at the autoconnecting) as the one on the 1 series.

    If you didn't have the bigger tractor, then the 1 series would be your obvious choice. But you do. So...
