    Look What a 1026R Can Do

    Ok, I am going to start this thread hoping others who own or use a 1026R will join me and add to it. Today I ran the middlebuster through the garden. I have a tiller, but cut the driveshaft down to run it behind the X728, and now it is a bit too short. I will replace it in the spring, so I put the buster on today. The soil was soft, but with 4WD engaged and steady forward motion, not a tire was spun. The buster measures about 18" from the tip, up to where it attaches to the Omni Mfg. Transformer hitch. Performance was stellar, the 1026R didn't even know the buster was back there! It was a windy day, so I held the camera, sorry the video isn't much, but it's better than nothing. Oh and I really like the turnbuckles on the outside of the lift arms, very easy to adjust. I also included a pic of the hitch with the 2" receiver on it.

    CP, you can get a extension for your PTO shaft, much cheaper than buying a new one: http://www.agrisupply.com/product.as...1971&sid=&eid=


    Nice pictures also, thanks for posting them

    Looking good CP.

    Makes you want a larger garden. It probably was a little to wet for the tiller anyway. Thanks for the post.

    Thanks Kenny, that is definitely the route I will go.


    And yes Randy, it is a little late in the season and the ground is quite soft, but not too wet. I am just glad to get it turned, and the tiller works great, but I hate to over work the soil too.

    Hard Working Tractors

    Thanks for the pictures, use to have a middle buster plow but sold it with my JD 750 years ago. I used it to dig up sweet potatoes and peanuts, worked great. Mine had a wide plow blade. Didn't think about using it to turn the garden, now I going to have to get another one. I wish I had taken pictures of me getting up a stump the other day. You would not believe what this little tractor can do. Started digging around a couple stumps the other day, the biggest one was about 20" across and the one beside it just a few inches away was about 15" across. It looked old and a little rotten, but as I dug I realized it was an old oak stump and still soild as a rock just under ground. And to my surprize it was ONE huge stump. It must have been about 3 feet across. I dug down about two an half feet with the tractor's FEL and finally broke it lose and pushed it out of the hole. It was so heavy my pickup could not drag it away. Had to use my powerful little 1026R. Man I love this thing.

    Thanks ONE FINE DEERE! Sounds like you are making good use of your 1000 series. Do you have a toothbar on the FEL? That is definitely on my list for spring. I actually used my 1026R and FEL to take the garbage to the end of the driveway tonight.

    1026R Looks great.

    How do you like it? I am very interested in purchasing one, I just bought the Z930A and although it is one grass cutting machine I need more. I sold my previous tractor and just purchased this in May. I have been to the dealer and they do not have any in stock. It looks great.
