Still shopping around and spoke to a knowledgeable sales person today who sort of took me aback in regards to the 2025R/2320. He thought it one of the worst tractors JD makes. My main use will be snow removal and I'd been leaning towards the 2025R mainly due to the split brakes but also for a bit more loader capacity for a set of forks for moving lumber around in the warmer months. He thinks the 1025R is a much better choice and thought the extra loader capacity over a 1025R was minimal.
Any body here move from a 1 series to a 2320 or 2025R care to comment about this or share personal experience with the different machines. I like the 1025R but was kind of hung up on the lack of split brakes from years of being barely in control plowing with old cub cadets.
