    Drove both the "2018" 1025R TLB and the 2025R today

    Both are 2018 models. Compared the 3pt maximum height of the 2025
    r to a 1023R in the showroom and the pin height on the 1023 was higher, didn't expect that, maybe something that can be adjusted? Ride did not seem improved on the 2025R. The 2025 travels noticeably faster, seems like the ratio is unchanged from the 1025 and the speed difference is related to tire size. Loader speed seems the same, we raised and lowered them side by side. While the higher location of the range shift lever is nice it doesn't shift as easily maybe because there is extra linkage? The 260B on the 1025 seems to have a bit smoother operation the cushion valve on the main boom is definitely an improvement. The other refinements the BH are very nice. Found the 2 seats easier than turning the old one but the backhoe seat is not as comfy as the yellow tractor seat. The step up to the platform on the 2025 works great. Since the platform on the 2025 is 3 or 4 in taller than the 1025 you really need the step. I just don't get why JD put the toolbox on the front of the 2025R. The big tires are the attraction as it should roll easier on soft ground and the clearance is better for sure. Might be able to run the larger tires a bit softer to improve the ride. I enjoy the forum!
    I currently own a 1025R TLB. Handiest tractor on the farm! Dealer said maybe I should look at a 2032R but probably to large to be as handy as this one.

    Are you saying the 3 point on the 1 series rose higher than on the 2025R? Wow.

    I own 4 tractors the 1025R is the smallest. I use the 1025R for every job it will handle. Just plain old handy.

    It is handy. The quick change buckets are great and sneaks in anywhere. Thats why when I'm trading to the new backhoe anyway I looked at the 2025. Just a bit more tractor on the same platform. I have several front end loader attachments rigged up.

    I happened to glance at the owners manual on a 3025E the other day and I noticed something interesting. This comes into play with the 1025 and 2025 as well but a little different in each case and I don't know what you have in Canada.

    Anyhow in the 3 series the 3025E can only run up to B5 which is a biofuel blend of diesel. If you go up to the bigger engines they can run B20.

    With the 2025R it states the following:

    Using Bio-Diesel Fuel

    Bio-diesel fuels may be used only if the bio-diesel fuel properties meet the latest edition of ASTM D6751, ASTM D7467, EN14214, or equivalent specification.

    The current maximum allowable bio-diesel concentration is a 5% blend (also known as B5) in petroleum diesel fuel.

    Concentrations up to B20 may be used if machine is modified with genuine John Deere B20 kit. Use of B6-B20 fuel will require maintenance interval changes from some components, and special procedures for fuel handling and machine storage.
    On the 1025R it states the following:

    Using Bio-Diesel Fuel

    Bio-diesel fuels may be used only if the bio-diesel fuel properties meet the latest edition of ASTM D6751, ASTM D7467, EN14214, or equivalent specification.

    The current maximum allowable bio-diesel concentration is a 10% blend (also known as B10) in petroleum diesel fuel.
    For us in Minnesota as of today all diesel sold in the state is B10 or a 10% blend of biodiesel as of May 1, 2018, that jumps to B20. Now I don't know what this means for AG fuel if you have off-road or fuel with die in it available. I just mention it because it might come into play depending on what you have available for fuel. There was no mention of a modification kit for the 1025R to run B20.
