I traded my 1025R today (for a 2032R). I never thought I'd do that. The first time I saw the new large frame 2 series, I thought, "Whoah, that's way too big."
Everything changed when I got the X590. Initially I bought it just to mow the side slopes (where the 1025R would roll) and to mow when it was wet (to not tear up the ground), but I soon found myself mowing with it all the time. The reason I bought the 1025R in the first place is because I thought I had to have one machine to do everything (and on my property, only a subcompact can do that). But without the mowing, there was no reason to have something that small for managing 10 acres of land.
I'll have the 1025R until the end of the week, then this guy here is going to be delivered. I love my 1025R, it served me well and it's a fantastic machine. This is kinda bittersweet. If the 1025 were a living thing, I would let it live out the rest of its days here, as it has served me well. But since it's a machine and I'm not rich, it's gotta go.
So, I guess this means I'm moving forums. Thank you everyone for all the help you've given me and for all the good times. You're a great bunch of people and I look forward to continuing to interact with you here on Green Tractor Talk.
