    If the dealer will take them, return the forks and invest in a set of Artillian forks. The ones you got from your dealer are likely quite heavy reducing the lifting capacity significantly. Artilian forks are about half the weight which allows you to lift heavier material

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    You did very well. Now, just take your time and get used to the tractor and it's operation. It takes time and practice to increase your proficiency of the operation of the machine. And when in doubt, ask questions as you already have here on GTT as there is a lot of experience dealing with a wide variety of issues regarding the machine and the wide range of implements and attachments you can add.

    Never forget, safety first and never carry loads with the front end loader, whether it's the bucket, pallet forks or anything else higher than the hood of the machine. Ideally, keep the load as low to the ground as you safely can. The center of gravity on these machines changes dramatically and rapidly as the loads on the FEL increase. Also, when operating on any inclines, especially when using the front end loader or pallet forks, always put the tractor in 4wd to maintain maximum control.....................

    It just takes time and practice and we want to see you all enjoy the new machine. It can do so many things to help you around your property.

    Welcome to the GTT site.

    Glad to see you did your due diligence and got the right tractor for you and your family.
    After looking at every green, red, orange, blue - and everything in between - machine out there, over several year's time, I also wound up with a 1025r and have been very happy with it.
    Looking forward to your future posts letting us know how it goes.
    Have fun!
