    I got the call today about the current trade in deal that Deere is offering on the..

    I have a 2014 1025r and Deere is going to make me a trade offer for it tomorrow for the 2018. My question is, is the new model really better or am I going to miss the old one. I use this for landscaping and it has to do with about 50% of my income so this is something I want to get right. My biggest concern is will it lift as much as the 2014 model PTO wiseClick image for larger version.

ID:	650308. I have a aera-vator that the 2014 barely lifts but works great with. And NO, getting a bigger Tractor to tear up customers yard is not a option. I just would like some feed back if anyone has had both model's.

    What caused you to consider upgrading to the 2018? Hours? mechanical problems?

    I don’t know that there is a noticeable difference in performance. Last year I bought what was supposed to be a 2017 MY but turned out to be a 2015 MY that had sat outside for a couple NE winters and summers. I traded last month for a 2018 FILB and can’t say that it’s a noticeable difference. Other than the fact that now getting my auto connect mower deck on is more of a manual process because nothing lines up like it did on the previous unit.

    Right... there doesn't appear to have been any changes to the 1025R engine, drive train or hydraulics since it first came out. I believe there have been little changes here and there like the PTO switch, air cleaner mount and a few other cosmetic items. Certainly nothing to warrant trading in unless you have high hours or your unit has been problematic.

    If you're happy with the tractor you have, consider shimming the pump if that's feasible.

    I like the look of the AeroVator. Looks like it gets down to business!

    The crappy taller roll bar and the fact that the floor, lower dash panel are difficult to remove to gain top access to the drive shaft u joint is enough to hault me from even considering a 2018 unit.

    When ever something is changed to make it worse I think twice about anything else that is not obvious.

    In fact the earliest 1023E and 1026R are far better machines. No yellow knob for backing up, no snowblower driveshaft sensor, lower up right roll bar, tach that always reads engine RPM’s, cardian u joint front drive shaft, more horse power, and Japanese ball bearings instead of china crap.

    And no small key slot to open the hood.

    I don't know the dealer call and said they are looking for use low hour tractors and had some kind of promotion on them. Probably a lie. They want to sell me a new one with just the loader for 14350 and give me a trade in value of 9350 on my current one with a hard 350 hours on it. Since I'm using this for my business having a shiny new tractor is appealing, and the 6 year power train warranty would be nice. And I can finance a attachment with it for zero percent for 60 months. Something I wouldn't get to do any other way. I do have a small hydraulic leak around the 4x4 shaft where it go into the transmission. I was bush hogging and got a bunch of vines wrapped around the shaft and they got into the seal. I've warped the front end loader from using the forks to break trees. And have over loaded the quick connects for the front end loader. One of them leaks. I've used this thing more as a skidder than a tractor and it's held up well.
