    I have the same equipment to mow with and I run at max rpm. High rpm's produce a better finish.

    Just got my 1025r today, as well. Was looking it over and it should be run at 3200 rpm for optimum PTO use. Your tachometer has a PTO symbol at the proper RPM level.

    Congrats on the new tractor. I run the tractor wide open when mowing, seems to work quite well.

    As for links, likely everything you need to know about your tractor is right here. While I was waiting on my tractor I looked through every page of the sub-compact forum. You'll be amazed and the resource you have found here.

    Wide open throttle. That's the best cut hands down. Many members have done this for years including myself. A few hundred rpm on the tach makes little difference for the engine, but make a dramatic difference for the mower and your cut quality.
