Hey everyone! Im new to the forum and a new JD owner, well almost. I ordered a 1023e with the 60d mmm and h120 loader. The dealer seems to think its only going to be about a week til they can deliver it. What a long week this is going to be! The tractor is at the dealer now and they are waiting for the loader and mower to come in. Before I pulled the trigger on the 1023, I was also looking at the Kubotas as well. I drove both and I really didnt like the foot controls on the Kubota. Plus, the I liked the fact that the 1023s loader can pick up almost twice as much weight. Anyway, cant wait for this thing to get here.
