I'm looking at picking up a JD 1025R while JD Australia has the 1% interest deal. That said I'm hitting a snag, as I understand the H120 is no longer compliant due to a rollback issue, but there's a JD kit to correct for this. The alternative is the locally made challenge 1821 loader and bucket, but its lift height and capacity isn't quite as good, nor does it attract the 1% interest (its about 2.31%).
The dealers keep talking up the challenge loader and bucket, but I haven't been able to see the H120 with the compliance kit in operation.
I'm hoping someone here has a H120 with the compliance kit and can comment, or has the challenge loader and bucket and has a view on which way I should go.
I really like the quick detach and stand on the H120, and the cheaper interest would offset the cost of the compliance kit.
Thanks very much,
