    Little help here on purchase of 1023

    Looking at retiring my 445 with 54 inch deck and just drove a 1023 with 60 inch deck. Was looking at the 700 series mowers but by the time you add diesel engine and 4x4 its quite a bit more than a 1023 just at MSRP. Anyway I got a quote of $12995 with 60 inch deck but I have seen several others advertising under 12k pretty regular. I want to be fair but the Kubota BX2370 was quoted to me for $11000 plus the tax so big difference. I have owned both JD and Kubota and still have a 2013 MX5100 HST that I love but really like JD mowers better I do believe. So if you purchased one let me know what you paid around about and I will call a few dealers and get some price quotes.

    Also wanted to ask, should I opt for a 1025 or 1026??? I am just going to use it as a mower and nothing else, I don't need a loader or really even a 3 point hitch but I understand that is standard. I tend to overkill everything I do and it usually keeps me pleased. That's the reason I am entertaining the 1023 over the 700 series mowers. Anyway thanks for the help and your time ...... God Bless

    I too went from the 400 series to the SCUT - twice a 2210 and the 1026r - I had AWS - I miss the AWS but the backhoe was a necessity for me

    I wanted the torque(important for grass cutting) the SCUT has and the loader - the loader has been the best money I have ever spent - the loader on the 1 series and miles more useful over the 700 series - consider it highly

    the loader is like have extra teenage children who follow your every order without question, whining and wont ask for the keys to the car -

    you will need useful ballast to use it to its fullest - a box blade and 6 suitcase weights may make more sense for your situation vs a ballast box that rots on the ground filled with concrete - it will lift or hold 600lbs at 6ft above the ground and will lift/move about 1000lbs to 4ft

    my 1026r with 60" mulching mmm mows about an acre in 45min and burns about 1 gallon of fuel

    the 1026r with r4 tires is light on the grass and they offer better traction than turf tires in the morning dew

    On the new JD tractors the 1026 was replaced with the 1025. If you never use the 3 point hitch the suspension seat, tool box and extra 2 work lights are the only difference you will most likely notice between the 1025-26 and the 1023. I do like having a little give in the seat for longer tractor time. I did need to purchase Psrumers custom springs to make it much better though.

    If you are not using any 3 point implements and no real long hours on it the 1023 would make more sense IMO. I'll bet you find implements you cannot do without and use the 3 point though. It is just that you can do so much with it you'll find you couldn't live without it.

    On the cost I am not sure what people are paying right now for a 1023. I think you can find it under $12,000. I am not sure how much under.

    While I love my 1025 and wouldn't have anything else, if I was just going to use it for mowing then I would have gone with a zero turn. I believe that they are the best at what they do. Have you thought about one of those? Is their a reason you prefer/need a tractor?

    As for 1023 vs 1026, for what you described I think that you will be fine with the 1023.

    halfshaft5,
    I have 1023E w/60" mower, hydraulic mower lift and front quick hitch 54" snow blower. I too looked at the x748 machine but after all the dealer figuring the 1023E was less money after adding all the stuff that was standard on the 1 series (no low range x748). But if you don't need anything except the big 60" mower the x758 should be cheaper without the 3 point and rear power take off. I went for the 1023E since heavy snow blowing is my main reason for the bigger tractor. Three point lift has been nice for moving heavy stuff. But in Tennessee a snow blower should not be necessary. Price was just short of $15k.

    Agree with some of the others you should be fine with the 1023, since you're not wanting to use the 3pt or a loader. Power should be fine, , main thing missing out on cig lighter, the extra lights, better seat, mat on the floor board, tool box. and then select control on 3pt you won't use. and what ever else I'm missing on difference of 1023 and 1025r Oh and 2 or so HP.

    It sort of sounds like the 1023E would serve you just fine. I'd compare the 10xR models to an LT truck versus the 1023E being more of a work truck. I like power windows and carpet over crank windows and rubber floor mats. If you plan on using the 0% I bet the difference is very little per month...... Today you may not want to use the 3 point, but do you think that will always be? I plan on keeping my 1026R for quite a few years and that's why I went up from an X748. Just seemed like a long term platform.

    Where in TN?

    Tennessee Tractor or Tri-Green?

    Check with Mutton, who is a site supporter and will ship. (and could also save you our wonderful 9.xx% sales tax)

    A couple of our TN Administrators have a pretty good relationship with a Tri-Green dealer in the Nashville area that might pay off a bit.

    Another member got John Deere to match Kubota's price...

    Just a couple random thoughts.

    Does the 1023 have foldable ROPS? I was thinking it didn't. I know that would be a no go for me, as I couldn't get it in my garage.

    You probably could on the second try, don't ask how I know.
