    1025R FILB Finally bought one! What add - ons.... next?

    Hello

    Longtime reader!

    4 hours total time since picked it up!

    Been reading on here about different ways to move trailers around with different receiver mounts....what's the one to get?

    How about other favorite accessories?

    Many things to add, but I chose to go with pallet forks, so I could unload and move all the other things I would be buying and adding later. Another addition I've found very useful is a canopy. It makes it a lot more comfortable to spend hours in the sun. I don't have a backhoe so I have no idea if it and a canopy are compatible, though.

    What you choose to add will be determined by what your first jobs for the tractor will be. What are you planning to do?

    And one more question. What weight and size trailer(s) do you intend to move around with the tractor?

    My favorite implement for my 1025 is pallet forks - secondly you will want a set of at least 2 Kens Bolt on Grab hooks! I got three and love them.

    I did make a mistake when I bought my forks I got some nice heavy duty ones and found out later that the lift capacity was greatly reduced because the forks are naturally part of the weight. I'd recommend 36" artillian -

    Good luck and congrats on the new green machine... enjoy !!

    Welcome to the site. We love spending someone else's

    x2 on Ken's Bolt on Grab Hooks. They are the least expensive and best improvements that you can do to your tractor.

    Pallet forks are the best thing you never new you wanted till you have them and Artillian's are world class. Get the HD frame with the built in receiver. It is prefect for moving a reasonably sized trailer.

    Trailer size, weight, and the terrain that you are moving it on are important. Very important especially if you are moving it with a FEL mounted receiver. You don't want the tail wagging the dog.

    Heavy Hitch and Omni both make great 3pt mounted receiver hitches/weight brackets.

    I will add a Piranha Toothbar to the list.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    If you have a suitable paved area, a home-brew dolly for the backhoe. Makes dismount/remount a whole lot easier! Chain hooks on the bucket!!!!! Also consider an LED light bar to mount on the roll bar, with the FEL on, the headlights & side work lights don't really cut it if you have to work on a dark & stormy night ....

    Also consider adding a mechanical thumb for the backhoe. Really increases its' utility! +1 on some form of pallet forks. The chain-on still do you good if the budget doesn't extend enough for the quick attach.

    As for what to get depends on what you're going to do the most. Get what you need for the job and the least invasive to what you have and can be taken off and put back on the easiest and fastest.

    I would also invest in a good grease gun. Grease. Tech manual. Extra fuel filters. All those extra goodies are of no use unless it is running.

    ... also, Lock N Lube tip for the grease gun really helps reduce the aggravation in getting the FEL + BH greasing done. A little pricey @ $30, but I'm really feeling it was cash well spent.

    Let me be the first

    to paint in JD Green

    Grapples from Artillian. If you have the fork frame and forks why not the grapple to go along with them.
