    Question before purchase

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to the forum and really appreciate all the information here. I'm about to purchase a 1025R TLB but had a quick question first.

    I've got two quotes from my local JD dealers. One dealer is $500 lower then the other but their 1025r has the loader and backhoe dealer installed rather then the factory filb. The dealer claims there's no difference between the factory installed vs. the dealer installed but I'm a bit skeptical. I've looked at but units and they look identical.

    Is there are reason I should be concerned with a dealer installed loader and backhoe? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Jonathan

    My preference would be for factory installed. That's mostly because I never know the level of experience or attention to detail that the service guy will put into the operation. At least at the factory there will be the experience.

    If it were me, and I know it isn't, I would ask them for a quote for all the parts and if it's a good deal, I would install it myself - otherwise I would go with factory.

    If the dealers tech's did it properly there is no difference between the units....

    If....

    Most likely differences are something simple like front sub-frame clamp location, hose routing, stuff like that. The parts are identical

    Thanks for your replies.

    I assume the warranty is the same either way. Any thoughts?

    Should be. Two year tractor, one year for FEL and Backhoe.

    A couple of things I would check on the dealer installed BH are 1) rear tire clearance to the BH subframe is at least 1/2" and 2) be sure the correct PTO shaft guard is installed (the one with the rubber flap).

    ... and make sure you are getting the quick attach bucket, not the pin on.

    And also make sure to test for DBS. (Droopy Bucket Syndrome) DTAC 92992.

    It looked like the dealer made this a regular thing. They had 10-15 1025Rs and I noticed a few loader/backhoe kits on their back lot. I'm guessing they just make up the combo when someone is looking for it. It would give them the most flexibility in their stock. Is this all bolt on stuff?

    Thanks.

    They do look nice when new don't they?

    Remember to have the dealer give you the 3pt hardware.
