Ive been looking at the 1 and 2 series for a while now, and getting close to finally doing something.
Trouble is, I wanted a bit more capacity than the old 1025R loader showed, which meant going to the 2025. Now the 2025 uses the same loader.
To complicate that, Ive seen several different specs.
I was initially excited to see that the 120R loader had a max of 955# now, but after reading a bit more, Im not sure it actually does have any more than the H120. It may actually be less.
In the brochure for the new 1025R, Deere says 835# at max height with the H120. They dont list the 120R, except to say 955# capacity in the 1 family brochure, but not in the loader table. At what height and where? Pivot?
On Deeres Front End Loaders/120R spec page, it shows a max of 754#
Then I found a video that shows the new loader lifting 955# to about 59", and thats it. The H120 would do that according to Deere.
So, is there actually a difference or is it just marketing?
So far, its extremely confusing.
Also, while Im at it, I like the larger tires and longer frame on the newer 2025R, but not much point in it for me if the capacities are all the same.
Does anyone know what they are? Deere doesnt show an updated brochure with any info yet. The old 2025 had a good bit more lift capacity than the 1025, but it appears it doesnt anymore.
My original plan was to get a 2520 or similar size tractor, but since I want a backhoe too, they are hard to find, and the ones I do see are as much or more than a new 1025R with loader/hoe, but at this point, I cant find a good way to compare loaders between the two.
Ill say too that the reason Im concerned with it is that the 955 I used some time back with 70 loader is listed as 850# capacity, and some of the logs I had to move were maxing it out. I could get by with that capacity though, as it would get them off the ground, but not much less capacity as theres a better than average chance Ill need to do that once in a while. \
So, can anyone help with those numbers?
