    New 1025R. Thanks Mutton! and Thanks GTT community

    I've been reading GTT for several weeks now as I pondered purchasing a 1025R.

    My new 1025R arrived last week, delivered by Mutton Power, as I live just over an hour away from them.

    I really didn't need a tractor this large, but I WANTED one. I kept reading all the stories here describing all of the fun you guys are having with your tractors, and I wanted to join the club!

    Shane (@ Mutton's) has been great to work with. He really knows his stuff.

    I found a used 260 backhoe at a significant discount. Shane was able to get the correct sub-frame kit and install it on the 1025R such that when delivered, I was able to connect the backhoe in just a couple of minutes.

    So, I now have the 1025R, 54D mmm, H120 Loader, 260 Backhoe, and Artillian Forks.
    So far, I've used the forks more than anything else. Very handy.

    I'm seeing some of the same issues others have mentioned:
    - Leak down of loader (going back to Dealer to fix this...)
    - Runs rough an smokes (light grey colored) on startup for a 10 seconds or so
    - Seat bottoms out. I guess I need some of psrumors' springs. ...or perhaps I need to go on a diet.
    - Light switch seems to be flaky.

    Even so, I never thought I would be able to find a tractor with all of these features, yet be compact enough to mow my small yard.

    Tim

    First day. My wife loves it.

    Ok, here is a picture. I suspect it will get a lot of use for 'unusual' projects.

    Judging by the grin on your wife's face, I'd say you're safe to add a couple of implements to your lineup. I'd start with the snow blower, then I'm sure she'll need a cab to keep her warm. She can start he new business in landscaping and snow removal and before you know it, it'll be paying for itself.

    Congrats and enjoy the ownership pride that goes along with it!
