I have a 425 that I bought (used obviously) when I moved here. I anticipated getting a loader for it for chores around the yard. However, I've come to realize something... by the time I buy the loader, weights, and other things needed to be completely functional, what I have is a 25yr old lawn mower with lots of expensive parts on it, with very limited capabilities. THen I look at all the projects I want to do around the yard and it's just not going to cut it. I need something bigger, and I have been drooling over the 1025R for a year now.
First I looked on craigslist, facebook marketplace, and some used equipment websites. The going rate for a 1 to 5 year old 1025R is only marginally cheaper than new. These things must depreciate like Jeeps... very little. The dealers are all offering 0% financing, free money. So it would actually be foolish to buy a used one with that kind of deal going. Am I missing anything here?
So here's what I want in 1025R:
- Loader w/ bucket
- 60" MMM
- R4 tires
- Pine rake
- Back blade
- Snow pusher (eventually anyway)
I'm guessing the rake, back blade, and pusher aren't something included in 0% financing?
