Hi folks; been a while since I last posted -
Coming up on season 3 with my 1025R and 60D 7 iron deck and thinking I am getting a little tired of it taking me nearly 5 hours to mow these 5 acres because I have to go so slow due to the bumps (not to mention the back pain). Its great to have the seat with springs, but the little tractor gets thrown around too much.
So I am wondering if I can't make this property better with what I have. I have the 1025R TLB with 60D 7iron , the 2048 BB, the H120R loader, and the Frontier RT1149 tiller (and the 260 Backhoe, but don't know how that would help level things).
I love this tractor - and I have a feeling it would make short work of this field if I knew what I was doing. I read all kinds of solutions on this elsewhere from just using the BB, to using the tiller and the BB, to driving backwards with the bucket down on float.
Before I go out and experiment and potentially make a big mess, I thought I'd check with the pros to see if anyone else has had experience in this area. I don't care if I ruin the grass as long as it will come back. It doesn't have to be super pretty, just has to be less bumpy.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts/help. Also, if the answer is get a bigger tractor, well, if I must I must. Just don't twist my arm too much.
