    My 1026R arrives...(Lots of pics)

    The 1026R arrived yesterday. It must have been an off day for the dealer because a couple things are missing, but it is no big deal. The ballast box didn't make here and they were supposed to weld three hooks to the top of the bucket and they didn't. My guess is they were trying to hurry to get it delivered, but I know they will make it right so I am not worried in the least. When I saw it on Thursday at the dealer they were waiting on a bag of parts for the 7Iron that didn't get shipped with it. Those parts were arriving Friday morning, and my guess they didn't have time to do the hooks? Interestingly enough, when the 2320 got delivered in 2007, they didn't deliver the ballast box with it either! The salesman said to play with it this weekend and then he would come up next week and go over it with me from end to end. This thing is sweet. It seems so solid and well put together. No ROPS rattle like I noticed on the demo, but my operating has so far been limited to smoother areas. The position of the seat and controls close at hand lend a very secure feel and operating position. The ergonomics are top shelf and this thing is so easy to get on and off from either side (for me anyway). The dealer also always delivers everything and parks it in front of the garage. But yesterday it got deposited just off the driveway in the lawn and the blower was left on a pallet hanging off the driveway, must have been a different driver! However, it allowed us the try out the 1026R and move the blower into the garage with the KK carry-all frame. It was so much easier to work with the 3PH than with that of the X728 due to it not being such cramped quarters. I hope to do some paint work to the blower before it is needed too much. I have included a myriad of pics. Please ignore the messes in the barn and garage, those are the jobs we do once the outside stuff is done when the hastiness of summer is a memory. I hope to use it for some outdoor chores tomorrow, but today is a family adventure day. However, we will be treading lightly tomorrow as the lawn is soaked! I really like the R4's, they were a gamble for me though. I am tired of all the grass clippings and mud that accumulate in the turfs and HDAPs and then fly all over when you try to clean them out. Hopefully the R4s will be ok. Oh and it won't fit in the garage without the ROPS folded down, no biggie. I am also going to enjoy the increased hydro speed of the 1026R over the 2320. Please forgive my random thoughts and lack of order, but I wanted to get these pics up.
