Well I procrastinated as long as I could . I received an email from Green Fleet Rewards that buyers of a 1 , 2 , or 3 series tractor got a free Imatch and free led worklight kit . Then I get a green fever email for $250 off . With 0% for 60 mos. and $900 off for implements , I just couldn't take it anymore . Since the free stuff ended today , I had to pull the trigger on a new 1025R . So , I am going to take the new backhoe I got a few months ago and put a new tractor on it . The biggest reason I made the decision to buy basically the same machine that I currently have is that I turned 60 a few weeks ago and thinking ahead to retiring . The fact that JD changed the powertrain warranty to 6 years is a good thing . I don't want to go into retirement and not have any warranty to cover the tractor once monthly income takes a downturn .
Anyway should be able to undo all the mods to my tractor tomorrow and let the dealer know it's ready . Not sure when the new one will be ready . Todays main focus was to get paperwork going so all the free stuff would apply
I'll post some pics as soon as I can .
