    Little Dynamo

    I have to be honest, right after taking delivery of my 1025r I had some buyers remorse. My long paid for GT 235 cut just fine so I questioned whether I should have spent $18k on a tractor. Fast forward a month or two and it might be the best investment I have made. The FEL is a great tool that just gets stuff done. My kids and I have fun finding new things to do,with it.

    I have a 3pt broadcast spreader I have used with my dads 8n. The efficiency of that on the 1025r vs a pull behind is substantial. I just bought a 40gal 3pt sprayer today.

    Great tractor!

    I was in same boat has you. I took delivery of my 1025R 10 days ago. Haven't had a tractor payment in 24 years, had a great 420 and 1020 to mow and plow snow with I really did not need another tractor. My son bought a house with a big lot so my wife mentioned givinG him a riding mower forhis housewarming. We decided to get a 1025r for us and let him have our 420 so two days before delivery I had surgery on my foot. Haven't been on the 1025 yet but we had some limbs come down during a storm my two sons cleaned them up in no time with the 1025 FEL. I know now I made the right choice and can't wait to get on it. Enjoy yours.

    Most people that are on the wall about the 1025r say the same thing. I was thinking my old wheel horse has been good to me. For 25 years do I really need this two months later I was thinking man I have almost ran out of projects that I had always wanted to do. My neighbor would always borrow my wheelbarrow I told him to just keep it the last tim he came for it. That loader is a little workhorse. Best wheelbarrow ever made has h120 stickers on the side of it. Glad you are happy with it.

    Yep, had the same thing going on, last year when I got the 1025R. Fast forward a year, 110 hrs later, my 345 just sits and occupies space in the shop. I'm always finding something for the 1025R to be used for and really enjoy the time I get using it.

    My Deere is a little bit bigger of a dynamo, but I do use it to carry groceries into the house from time to time.

    A couple of months worth. But Kroger had it on sale - Four 12-packs for $11 ($2.75 each compared the non-sale price of $4.95 ) - so I stocked up! There's probably 2-3 months worth of pop there for us and some of it goes to my housebound parents.

    Too funny, Bubber!! I spend a lot of time in the ATL area and know exactly what you're talking about!! I don't think it's Yankee though. Yankee would be "soda". Pop is more Southern / Appalachian.

    "Pop" is short for "Soda Pop". Back in the late 80's I was out in Lake Tahoe. I went into a grocery store and asked one of the employees if they had a pop machine. "What's a pop machine?" was the reply.
