    Soon to be new 1026R owner

    I've been lurking here for the past few months as I made a decision on a new tractor. Currently have a JD LT 180, 42" mulch deck, plow, 10P cart, tractor trunk and snow chains. Very long story short, I narrowed my choices down to an x748, 1023E/1026R. Just placed the order for the 1026R today with 54" front blade, H120 FEL, iMatch, ballast box and 60D 7 Iron mid mount mower with auto connect. Dealer projecting Facotry Delivery Dates week of 12/19 except for front blade which is week of 1/7, might be sooner.

    That's awesome! You'll enjoy your new tractor. The 1026R is an extremely capable, comfortable machine that is a joy to operate.

    1026r

    Congrats on the 1026R purchase, I took delivery of mine on the 9th of Dec. have the loader,54" snowblower and the 60D 7 Iron mower deck. I have only a few hours on the unit but so far am very pleased. I previously had a JD la 130 , poor thing, it just couldn't cope with the 5 plus acres and the terrain. Now I'm hoping for 8 ft of snow so I can really have some fun.

    I'm not sure I believe yet either! I'm calling the dealer today for an update, this is the week everything was to be in except for the front blade. still trying to decide if I want to give the yard one final cut with the mower or just leave it slightly long and mess with that in the spring. I do want to run the aerator around the yard once if it seems like the ground is not frozen yet.

    My aerator is a Ryan town behind Lawnaire with a clevis and pin hitch. http://www.ryanturf.com/products/law...ire_towbehind/

    Whats the best way to attach this to the 1026R? I ordered it with the iMatch mainly so I can attach/detach the ballast box easily.

    You can connect it directly to the tractor below the rear PTO shaft. It's a little tight there but a clevis hitch will be just fine.

    Yikes!!! I sold the old garden tractor and snow blower set-up and now my dealer is telling me January 10th for delivery. PTO shaft connecting the 54" blower to the 1026 is back ordered . I'm praying the snow holds off!

    Just called Dealer. Good news is the 1026R, Ballast Box/iMatch and 60D MMM are in!. Not as good news is that the H120 FEL is being shipped (from TX, but made in Mexico.... got to love NAFTA), has been invoiced, but might not make it here this week, hard to tell. Bad news is that the front blade is still showing Jan 5-7. He said its not really the blade as they are available, but the Quick Hitch parts to mate to the 1026R. So no delivery for Christmas, but prob end of first week in Jan. He told me they have "visiting hours" all week if I want to stop in and see the 1026R. I might just do that.
