    Traded 1025R - bittersweet

    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.

    I wish I had the land for a bigger machine, but I still enjoy using my baby tractor.

    I think the thing I'll miss the most about the 1 series is the "omg look what this little thing can do!" factor. Everyone expects bigger tractors to do heavy work, but when you see this absurd little machine lift one end of a gazebo clear off the ground or pick up 800lbs of rocks, it's awe inspiring.

    Congrats on the 2032R! Sweet machine!

    You're right, people underestimate the power of a machine like a 1025R. Never will I call such a machine a small toy tractor, and many who see it perform won't either.

    Enjoy your new ride!

    Congratulations on the new machine. I am in the same boat kinda, I have 11.5 acres and my 1025 does the job but I will need a bigger tractor as my plans come to fruition.

    Congratulations! We all know the saying... Bigger is better!

    Seriously though the 1025 are amazing and though I would love more property and a bigger machine it's not going to happen with my health issues.

    So enjoy it!!

    Thanks Pat. I was driven partly by my jealousy of your large rear tires. :P

    I'm joking.

    Sort of.
