    1025r vs 2320

    I'm trying to decide between the 1025R and the 2320 with FEL and front mounted snowblower. I have 3acres but only 1if to mow my main use of the tractor will be driveway maintenance and snow removal. I have about 100 yards of decommissioned class six road as a driveway entrance and a 50lot yard by 20 yard parking area, all gravel. I need to be able to grade and snowblow this in less than the current 3hrs. I regularly get snowfall of more than 8inches with a highway wingblade snow bank about 3 to 4 feet high and 4 to 6 feet wide. My class six regularly washes out in the spring and heavy rain storms. Any suggestions as to which tractor would be better suited for these tasks. I'm on a limited budget

    I've only had my 1025R for one weekend and I've really been impressed with the power of this machine. I'd have to believe that with a snowblower the 1025R would be sufficient for what you're describing. Mine pulls a full load of material in a 48" box blade just fine for re-grading a washout (that's what I'm using it for)

    What's the budget? Neither are cheap machines.

    The budget is around $20,000 to $25,000 with the attachments I listed but it's more about the monthly payment than the overall cost

    I am also thinking the 1025r. Especially if you don't need the ground clearance.
    BTW, Welcome to GTT.

    Well at the moment ground clearance isn't an issue but I'm planning on getting the BH maybe next year and clearing some of the woods for a shooting range. If I pop stumps as I go will I be ok with the low ground clearance?
    Thanks for the welcome I've been reading here and you guys know your stuff!

    Mine is running me $278/month @ 0% interest /72-month term.

    It was just under $20K out the door on my 1025R with FEL ($3100), ballast box, boxblade ($650), full hydraulic snowplow ($1300) and 60" MMM ($2350), 4-wheel chains ($200) and Rimguard ($250)

    My quote from the nearest JD dealer was $19,000 for the 1025R with the attachments listed at 0% for 60 months and $12,500 down. Puts my payment around $110 a month. Moneys tight right now but I'm beating myself to death the way I'm doing it right now.

    FYI...If you sign-up for a Drive Green event you can get another $500 off or extend the financing to 72 months vs 60 months.

    Thanks for the tip. Is that a JD website deal or at the dealership?
