    GT244...suggest checking out http://www.greentractortalk.com/foru...vs-11025r.html POST #8. Some pertinent info there on both tractors you are thinking about.

    - 2520 is a great tractor...more weight...stronger hydraulics. But don't plan on both a MMM and a backhoe. Not impossible to go between both implements...but IMO a major undertaking given sub-frame of backhoe.

    - This is where the 1026R shines. The 1-series tractors are the transformer of tractors regarding implement change over, with little to no strenuous physical labor. I was pleasantly surprised by the power of my 1025R, particularly the FEL, but certainly not as strong as the 2520.

    Good luck...both great tractors. I second psrumors' suggestion...figure out why you need the tractor, then match your requirements to the capabilities/limitations of the tractor.

    - DBS fixed!

    - 44" Deck, 48" Dozer/Plow Blade, Wheel Weights, VacBagger System

    Wheel Horse 14HP "No Name" - 1973
    - Finished "frame off" restoration 2013 (3 yr project)
    - 42" Deck, 48" Plow Blade (sold), 36" RotoTiller (sold)


    I'm so confused, "GREEN" versus "RED"

    Both tractors are great. I love my 1025R for the size, changing attachments around, and capabilities of what I have done so far. My brother has a Cub/Yanmar sx3100 which is the same tractor as the 2520 with a few more hp and it is a great tractor. Like the power and feel of it. The hydros are very capable and a good drivetrain. The only thing that I do not like about it is the drive comfort. It actually seems tighter than the 1025R. There is no tilt steering, and the controls are pretty tight to the seat. I know I am a big guy, but I have knocked it out of range before when I was brush-hogging and turning in the seat. That is my only complaint with that tractor.

    Either way you are getting a great machine. Personally for my yard size and what I do the 1025R is perfect.

    Good luck with your decision.
