    Used the 1025R and 54" snowblower first time.

    Just took delivery of the 1025R on weds. and worked to get the 54" snowblower on it and finished that project Sat night getting ready for the predicted snow storm on sat night/sunday. Well, the storm fizzled out and we only got about 4". I took it out anyways and all I can say is "WOW", this is awesome! It blows so effortless and smooth. My old 445 did a good job too, but this is just another world. The joystick is so much easier than the 2 levers by the steering wheel on my 445 and the 445 would just creep backwards in reverse where this 1025 goes as fast backwards as it does forward. It just feels so big and solid. I felt like I was in control of a monster. I just wish I had bought it before winter started. We had some really nasty snow storms this year and the old 445 really struggled with power going thru the deep stuff. I never thought I would actually say I am looking forward to next winter now! Plus you guys helped me figure it all out and get it all working correctly! Thanks!!

    Good to hear ,you like the setup. Agree it is a big difference going from 445 to 1025-26r. Been using my daughter FIL 445 w/54 fb , Pushing 10 plus inches of snow OK , but if I wasn't careful I could get hung up very easy. He has a Curtis cab , but no wheel weights maybe fluid in tires. Still needs some extra weight, I put a 50# bag of rock salt helped some.. Yea going from it to our joystick is like going from a YuGo to a Caddy...
