I've been lurking on the forum the last couple of months and thought it was finally time I joined. Any time I'd do a google search on the models I was looking at, I'd get pointed to GreenTractorTalk, and I would gobble up whatever sage advice was being dispensed that day. After it was all said and done, I committed to a 1026r this morning. I'm pretty excited and felt like I was given a fair deal. I demoed the Kubota BX2660, but fell in love with the green machine when I drove it.
That being said, I bought the JD mainly because I just acquired 5 acres of grass field that will soon contain my new home. It's pretty much meadow right now, but I plan on landscaping over the next couple of years. In your expert opinions, what implements should I buy versus what makes sense to rent? I got the 1026 with the 60 drive over deck and FEL, so those are covered. What have you guys found to be your best investments in attachments/implements? I thank everyone in advance!
