Very excited today. Was going to buy a used 1025r tlb and I got some good eyes on the machine here and it turned out to be not quite up to par. So then I considered a massey and told my very close friend who I buy my deere commercial mowers from and he asked me to give him 24 hours to give me the best deal he could. 24 hours later I've purchased a 2017 1025r tlb brand new at a ridiculously low price and I'm stoked. The massey gc1720 is a nice machine but I'm thrilled that the local john deere guys bent over backwards to keep my shed all green. I'll be adding the 60" deck and a tiller as well. Think I'll get the tiller at tractor supply they have great reviews. I look foward to sharing pics in a week or so when it arrives. Thanks for steering me in the right direction fellas.
