    A formal hello from new 1026r guy (yes, PICS included).

    Been waiting for new 1026r to come in, got here in less then 2 weeks. Still waiting on grill gaurd, loader, etc, but wanted it today as we (WI) are getting snow Sat night/Sun. I should be ready. Gonna try to blow without rear weight. Main duty will be snow removal, but I do have a loader coming too. Any tips, helpful hints (keep ROPS up, belted in, safey 1st I know, but, this is my 1st real tractor (have had LX277 for 10 years).

    Congrats on the 1026R! and thanks for the pics. This may be the first actual pics I have seen of a blower on the 1026R. My blower is still on a pallet in the garage and the FEL on the tractor. I presume that is the 54" blower? You should be ok without the ballast depending on you conditions, but better and safer with some of course. I ran my 2320 with turf tires and no ballast one winter and was fine. All of my snow blowing is on concrete and asphalt. I did use the MFWD though! With weight on the back, I believe I went one winter without ever using the MFWD. I will be using rear ballast on my 1026R this winter and I am curious to see how the R4 tires perform as well. Keep us posted!

    Yep, 54" blower.

    My sales guy suggested I try the blower without weight (level asphalt drive). Dealer is a mile away, I'll drive her over if I need something.

    Sweeeeeeet setup. Is that the 54" blower?

    If you dont have any ballest you might have to run it in 4wheel drive to get traction if you are slipping to much. If you are blowing on gravel I would set the skid shoes down as far as they will go to leave some snow to make a crust and to minimize picking up gravel and throwing it in the grass. Just my 2cents.

    Thats handy! Enjoy your setup. I still can't believe that for what we pay for this stuff, (2) drift knives can't be standard! I lucked out and got (2) with my blower I guess because it came with the 2320 in 2007?

    SaaaaaWeeeaat set-up FR60

    Now, don't you go wishing snow on us here in WI, I don't have my blower on just yet. CP is correct, you will probably need 4WD without the weight. I run my set-up with a ballast box and rarely turn the front drive on. I do use the split brakes though, very, very handy with a blower. Do the 1026's have split brakes? I know my 2305 doesn't. Hope they made that improvement for ya.

    Oh yeah, welcome to the fun, glad you post the pics right up front. I know they would be requesting it if ya didn't. Glad you're here and participating.

    No split brakes......never had 'em, wont miss 'em.

    Wouldnt it be easier to just use 4x4 then go buy/store/look at/fill/ a balast box? heck, I paid for the 4WD, might as well use it.....no?

    Well you have a FEL coming so you will need a ballast box anyhow. So I suggest you drive over and get an iMatch and ballast box to finish off the rear of that nice new tractor. Maybe a chute deflector cable as well. Not sure if it is hiding on the right side or not installed.

    Now I don't feel bad. My larger tractors have all had split brakes since 1988 I think I've used/needed them twice. Average tractor usage per year is/was about 150-200 RPM hours.
