    Great day

    Today was a great day. I was able to get on my 1025R for the first time!! After surgery on my legs I was finally able to get on it and I actually fit. Being a large guy I was afraid I would have to figure a way to move the seat back but with the seat back and the tilt wheel all the way up I was fine. After using the 420 since 91 this is a caddy. Have to get use to the foot pedals has the 420 has hand control hydros. My son and I chopped up leaves this morning him on the 1020 and I was on the 1025R. Bought it in July And took delivery August 4th my son's used it but now I have been on it looking forward to plowing with it. Will do change over next weekend

    Heal well and don't push it. Setbacks in healing stink. I thought buying my JD 1023 was over kill and in some ways it was. But when you need hard work done and comfort, this is the only way to role.
