    Ordering 1025r TLB

    Hi all!

    Complete Deere Newb! My Introduction

    I wanted to post a couple of days before I goto my local Deere and sign the papers to order my new 1025r TLB ... I think it's a pretty decent deal. 23134 MSRP with a 17% Discount, and another 2400 for the 60" MMM with Mechanical lift. I've added things like the guards for the lights on the ROPS and the brush Gaurd ... I'm guessing with the included backhoe the power beyond is part of that package deal? local dealer couldn't tell me positively.

    Anything else I should have on the 'must have' order list??

    Yup. The Backhoe runs off of the Power Beyond connections so if you order the factory TLB (aka "FILB") configuration, it comes with the Power Beyond installed.

    Congratulations! I love mine. The brush guard and power beyond are included in the tractor loader backhoe combo. Get some of their polyurea grease, it is recommended and a superior lubricant. Get an extra set of mower blades to keep you moving if you get dull or hit a root or anything. It's not a bad idea to have an extra quart or two of the low viscosity hi guard hydraulic fluid on hand. Get the steering wheel spinner knob! I have worked on mine and my girlfriends 1 series and found the mower spindles had very little grease in them and had to pump many strokes in them before grease began to purge anywhere. Enjoy your new tractor!

    See if you can get the 53" loader bucket instead of the 49". I wish i had done some more research before I bought mine.

    Welcome from Idaho.
    Very happy with my FILB and am often surprised by just how much the little green ogre is capable of.
    I have a couple of acres that was in real need of grading/landscaping (and snow removal). I bought it in February and have used the hoe to dig out numerous stumps and a few trenches. FEL has been used to move a lot of gravel and most recently to backfill the foundation of our new addition. Box scraper was used to rough grade "The Park" area. They really are handy to have around.

    Same here. 49" is OK, but for just a little bump, I think the 53" would have served me better.

    Be sure and confirm training on the ENTIRE system. Schedule it early. Have them install and remove everything, then you do it. I didn't and had to learn it on my own.

    I had a problem right out of the box with my boom cylinder leaking down. You could watch it fall. Again spend some time with the Shop Guys. Pull all the pins on the BH, drive around. Easier to find issues right there at the Shop. Check the bucket and read up on floppy bucket (and another one, I can't remember).

    See if a hard left turn contacts the steering cylinder hose. Have them fix it.

    Check the swivel seat and make sure they lube the ball joints. It will probably fail anyway, but it give something to last a little longer.

    Make sure you have them install the 3 point. Make sure it is oriented properly. They can leave the links attached to the arms. Some guys have left the Shop without any or all the parts.

    When you get home, disable the RIO. Several methods, do a search here. No sense in suffering through it's use.

    Get a good grease gun. Have them show you all the grease points. Careful attention to the U joints and sliding splines underneath.

    Check all the fluid levels. Trans, engine, radiator, front axle.

    Contact your Insurance company. You will need to have coverage and JD on a policy, if you are financing.

    If you are hauling, chains are highly recommended. I used heavy straps, and found 2 cut in have by sharp edges. The sharp edges are everywhere and not entirely obvious.

    If you are over 200#, get the heavier Seat Springs from Ken's-bolt-on hooks, a vendor here. Get the hooks also and consider one for the BH bucket.

    Bring a tape measure and verify the mower deck height. Place it in different positions and measure again. Install and remove the deck several times in different places. Release lever should release with one finger. Latch should click on the first try when installing.

    Don't be afraid to utilize these guy's time. You paid for it and they know it. Drive the thing around between each operation they show you. Lets things settle before installing/removing.
